After graduating from university in Cornwall, Tim secured the role of Welfare President at his students’ union. This gave Tim valuable experience in customer service, project management and event planning. From this experience, Tim moved on to work for an events company, specialising in corporate events and exhibitions, further growing his skills.
Having worked in this environment for a few years, Tim saw the opportunity to move back to Cornwall and work in a more diverse role at Tremough Innovation Centre as our Clerical Assistant, delivering exemplary customer service. Tim has since moved into the role of Project Administrator and continues to enjoy supporting our clients.Back to the team
