I am very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with so many dedicated and professional colleagues and friends with both the Fire and Rescue Service and Rescue 2. When I am not working, I enjoy spending valuable time with my family, Titch (the cat who thinks he is a dog) and our gorgeous Australian Labradoodles, Angus and Girty.

Bio to follow…
I started working with Rescue 2 in April 2018, after transferring from our sister company, Alpha Training. My role of coordinator is to be the first point of contact for customers and team members. I am responsible for dealing with enquiries, providing quotations to customers and putting the right teams together for each individual project.
I’m really enjoying the buzz of working for a fast growing family business.
My background includes many years working for a big corporate company that involved me working across many departments co-ordinating new product development for launch to the global markets.
I am married to Richard with 2 grown up children. In my spare time I enjoy the great outdoors, touring the countryside with my caravan. I enjoy cycling, walking and various keep fit classes. I have completed the British Heart Foundation London to Brighton bike ride and a 10k brutal Mud Run.
I recently joined Rescue2 in the new role of Technical Operation Support. My role is to assist the Operations Manager with planning and coordinating confined space entry and rescue cover operations, and liaising with our team of Rescue specialists and clients. I am also tasked with maintaining and developing the vehicle fleet and general Rescue2 equipment.
Prior to joining Rescue 2, I spent 15 years within the British Army where I was lucky enough to travel the world and train in a variety of roles – from communications specialist to helicopter handler, which involved providing specialist underslung load support and landing site management for helicopters across the Armed Forces.
In my spare time I enjoy relaxing with my wife Hanna and my children Arthur and Molly. I am a keen mountain biker and also enjoy trial running – mainly across the South Downs.
I first became involved in working for Alpha Training and Rescue2 after leaving university, I wanted to take a year off to decide which career direction I wanted to go in and I’ve been with the company ever since!
I really enjoy working for Rescue2, especially interacting with our clients, and receiving great feedback about our work. Rescue2 HQ is a real buzz – always something exciting going on!
In my spare time I like to relax at home with my husband Mike, our young daughter and our two cats. I love all thing’s outdoors and I enjoy mountain biking and going to the gym. As a company some of us recently cycled 75 miles off road from London to Brighton for the British Heart Foundation. It really was an amazing experience and we hope to do something similar again soon.
My responsibilities include running the financial aspects of the business, banking and cash flow, looking after any legal matters including premises, vehicle administration and purchasing.
I joined when Rescue 2 Ltd was launched in May 2012 and have seen the company continue to grow. I have learnt that Health and Safety of people is a key milestone for all serious companies and I am proud to be involved in Alpha and Rescue 2 in helping businesses to achieve their goals.
Prior to Rescue2, I worked for a major bank, the last 16 years as ‘an old fashioned’ Bank Manager and some years before the crash I up skilled myself for my new career in company finance, an area I have been involved ever since
I am married with two independent boys (men) one runs the family business which we have owned for 12 years now.
My wife and I live down on the Sussex coast having spent 12 months completely refurbishing our new home. In my time away from the business I am a keen touring cyclist, winter is taken up playing league badminton and playing my tenor saxophone. I have a keen interest in most forms of sport, playing and watching. Love travelling.
My main role is to assist the Rescue 2 Resource Management Lead, with the maintenance and servicing of the huge array of equipment, ensuring the Rescue 2 team and the trainers have correct and suitable equipment for each job.
Working at Alpha Training and Rescue 2, came out of nowhere really but as soon as I heard about the opportunity I knew it would be something I would really enjoy doing. Dealing with all the various equipment that the company uses I find endlessly interesting and I can’t wait to expand my knowledge in all areas of the companies ever evolving needs, learn some new skills on the way and hopefully help some people in the process, but with the great team of people they have here I’m sure there will be no end as to what they can teach me.
While I’m not working I enjoy being outside, working out, heading down to Cornwall to go surfing (one day I will move there) and taking part in various and obscure extreme sports, however an evening in playing video games or binge watching Game of Thrones is never a bad option in my book.
Hi, I have just started working at Rescue 2 with Joe in the Resource Management team, and I am so excited for what’s to come! My role is assisting in ensuring that all three businesses have the correct and suitable equipment in the right place, at the right time.
In my spare time I spend with family and friends. I have a young son who I am enjoying watching grow and teaching him along the way. I also enjoy watching football and will take any chance I can to watch a match!
I joined Alpha Training Safety Solutions Ltd in January 2020 working as a Training Assistant role working with Trainers across the South of England. I served nearly 24 years in the British Army and when I decided to leave as I wanted to undertake a complete career change as I’d spent the majority of my career within HR as an HR Manager, culminating in an auditing role prior to leaving in November 2019.
Within my first 2 weeks of arriving I had completed the Harness Wearing and Inspection, Working at Height, Confined Space Basic Entry and Emergency First Aid at Work courses which highlights Alpha’s commitment to my personal development and it enables me to deliver the best possible training.
I am now the Resource Management lead – working with all things equipment and resources across all three businesses.
I’ve just started as a Finance Assistant Apprentice. I wanted to get into accountancy for a while and I am excited to have the opportunity to learn and grow through Rescue 2. I am excited for the chance to change the direction of my career and feel this company is a wonderful fit for me with its atmosphere of encouraging growth.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my partner and friends, often playing board games. I also read a lot of fiction books and enjoy creative writing. I have also been learning how to garden, with the hope of growing my own vegetables.
