What Paul thinks about Paul
I worked in animal welfare straight after school. It came in handy later when I looked after my mum and dad’s guide dogs. I’m short-sighted myself. My sight was a lot better when I was in animal welfare but it has deteriorated over time. I like working in a team, I’ve got good attention to detail and good timekeeping. What’s my best attribute? I’m good with my hands, which comes in... er, handy. I volunteer at a lawn bowls club for blind players. I help with putting out the equipment, guiding the players. And it also led to me volunteering on their social outings, where I help out too. I’d really love to look after guide dogs. But when I was younger, they only allowed fully-sighted people to do it.
What Paul’s manager Ozzie thinks of Paul
Paul’s a really quick learner and really helpful. He used to be a branch secretary, so he’s really experienced at delegating and problem solving. Everyone gets on with Paul. He’s one of the soap cutters here at BECO., and he also checks that the colour and size are accurate. He’s a great person to have on the team.
What Paul’s colleague Sareet thinks of Paul
Paul’s a quiet guy, but once you get to know him, he’s a good character and really helpful. His vision is better than mine, so he helps me out a lot. He also volunteers at a visual impairment charity, where he helps out as a guide. He’s just one of those people who give and never expect anything in return.
