stickee: How did you end up working for stickee? Tell us how you got here?
RD: I started out working for an online flooring business in an e-commerce support role, while also undertaking a 2-year IT & Marketing apprenticeship. After completing this I then took on the role as a data analyst for 2 more years. I then began to seek for a new exciting opportunity to further my development & this is exactly what I found since day 1 of working for stickee!
stickee: Can we get you a tea or coffee? How many sugars?
RD: Black, no sugar please.
stickee: What were your first impressions of stickee?
RD: A vibrant, friendly & professional workplace with a very trendy edge to it!
stickee: Who would play you in a movie of your life?
RD: Tom Hardy, followed closely by Jason Statham.
stickee: If you have a life outside of stickee, what do you get up to?
RD: Mostly revolves around football! Whether it be playing or watching, I’ll go up to Liverpool when I can to watch a couple of games every season. I also go to the gym a few times a week, I play a bit of fifa & then spend the rest of my time with family & friends.
stickee: It’s lunchtime, someone offers to get you whatever takeaway you desire, what do you go for?
stickee: What’s your favourite book, film and album?
RD: Not one to read many books but Steven Gerrard & Jamie Carragher’s autobiographies are up there. Film: I can’t decide a favourite! so… Limitless, Wolf of wall street, Man on Fire & Legend.
Album: I listen to a wide variety of music but mainly dance/chart.
stickee: What’s the best holiday you’ve ever been on?
RD: I couldn’t choose a best but I have a few holidays that I have really enjoyed! A family holiday to Alcudia, a 3-week vacation to Australia in 2014, Zakynthos in 2015 & last but not least… Paris for 4 days over new years for 2016, although being very cold, the city is beautiful & I really enjoyed my time there.
Thanks for your time, Ryan…
