Meet our new trainer – Taff

Select Lifestyles Limited West Midlands Support Care Supported Living Birmingham Wolverhampton
  • What name/nickname do you prefer to be called?
  • Taff – Being ex-forces, everyone referred to me as ‘Taff’ as I am Welsh, and it stuck from there on really.
  • What did you do before Select Lifestyles?
  • I spent 20 years in the Army, 18 years jumping out of planes for a living and spent 15 years in the care industry working with children with challenging behaviours. I also lived in Hong Kong, Germany, spent 6 months in Africa.
  • What’s your role within Select Lifestyles?
  • I’m the new Mandatory Trainer, taking over all the mandatory training courses such as – Health and Safety, First Aid, Food Hygiene, Fire Safety and so on. This will give Wayne more time to concentrate on the care related courses that we have to deliver to all of our staff.
  • What do you enjoy doing when you’re not at work?
  • I really enjoy watching documentaries, any to do with history, the military or crime.
  • I absolutely LOVE karaoke, so much so that one year my wife bought me a karaoke machine. My go-to karaoke songs are ‘Great balls of fire – Jerry Lee Lewis’ and ‘thinking out loud – Ed Sheeran’.  
  • Where’s your favourite place in the world and why?
  • I once went to Kenya on a safari, and this has to be my favourite place in the world. The countryside is so beautiful.
  • Fun fact: I feature in a book called ‘Excursion to Hell: Mount Longdon : a Universal Story of Battle’.
