Mark Pollard, 57

When did you join FareShare and why?

October 2022, because I needed a job I would enjoy.

What do you enjoy most about working at FareShare?

The relaxed atmosphere. Nobody pressuring me too much. Plus the knowledge that I'm helping to improve people's lives.

What is your favourite meal?

Roast beef, roast spuds, veg, all that trad stuff.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

Lie on my sofa. Meet mates down the pub. Listen to and make music. Spend quality time with my daughters and granddaughter.

What is your favourite season in the year, and why?

Autumn. For a season when everything is supposed to be dying, it always seems so fresh. The smells and the colours are fabulous.

When did you join FareShare and why?

I came to fareshare 12 years ago to gain some forklift truck experience as a volunteer, then I completed an apprenticeship, then joined the main team here at fareshare and climbed the ladder all the way to operations manager.

What do you enjoy most about working at FareShare?

I like the day-to-day challenges of fareshare and working alongside all the traineeships who come to gain warehousing experience.

What is your favourite meal?

Indian curry.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I just became a grandparent, so I love to spend time with my grandchild. Family time is so important to me so any spare time is spent with my family. I enjoy playing golf too.

What is your favourite season in the year, and why?

Summer (who doesn't).
