Employee Spotlight: Annabel Groombridge

It’s been a while since we introduced you to our team members here at Able Canopies. We therefore have a treat for you as this week, I sat down with the newest member of team Able to find out what she loves about working here and what her special talents are. So, without further ado, I will pass you over to Annabel, our Marketing Administration Assistant:

“I’m the newest member here at Able Canopies having started working for the company in March 2023 taking on the role of the Marketing Administration Assistant. I am nineteen years old and working at Able Canopies is my first full-time corporate job. I was very pleased to have gotten the opportunity to start working for Able. My job role can be quite varied day to day as I take on a mix of admin tasks that enable me to dig deep into many different elements of the business at all stages of the canopy buying process.

At work, my motivation thrives on the constant opportunity to learn new things and expand my knowledge. My team also plays a role in maintaining motivation as effective teamwork is vital, especially when the task of supplying and installing commercial canopies requires coordination between different departments to deliver the best results to our clients. Outside of work, I find that my friends, and family motivate me as having them supporting me and seeing their successes inspires me to work as hard as I can to achieve my goals and aspirations.

One of the aspects I enjoy about my role at Able Canopies is the dynamic nature of each day. I am presented with challenges and tasks, each requiring solutions. This not only keeps my workday interesting but also provides lots of opportunities for me to acquire new skills and enhance my knowledge. Another aspect that I find particularly rewarding is the creative freedom I have. An example of this was during the Christmas season when my manager and I engaged with the popular ‘Elf on the Shelf’ trend. This activity was not only enjoyable but also allowed us to creatively integrate it with our brand, contributing to our marketing efforts in a fun and innovative way.

The accomplishments I am most proud of are how much knowledge and how many skills I have picked up very quickly in the last 10 months. I have come very far from starting my job at Able Canopies with very little experience and knowledge however, I have learnt so much and will continue to expand and evolve my knowledge and skills further. I have developed a very professional attitude when it comes to working, as I believe that having a positive and professional mindset helps develop my skills, enabling me to grow and improve my work constantly and make consistent progress.

I am therefore motivated by a strong desire for self-improvement and a thirst for knowledge. This helps drive me to become the best version of myself and has an important role in my life. It fuels my determination to achieve my goals, not just in my personal growth but also in my professional endeavours. This helps motivate me and inspires me in all areas of my life, including my work.

And just for fun, my secret talent that nobody knows about is that I can play the clarinet and I have green fingers! They’re not actually green of course, I just love growing and nurturing plants including house plants, vegetables and herbs.”
