Meet the team: ChloePublished 11.10.19
We’re delighted to introduce Chloe, a new member of our team. She’s joined us as a project co-ordinator, and has spoken to us about how she’s finding her new role.
What’s your name and role at Cobus?
My name’s Chloe Gibbins, and I’m a project co-ordinator at Cobus.
How long have you been working at Cobus?
I’ve been working with the Cobus team for two months and two weeks now.
Tell us about your background, and how you got to where you are now.
I began my career working as an interior designer, which spanned 7 years. This included managing projects from start to finish. I then moved on to a graphic and brand design company, where I continued to work as a project manager. From there, I worked my way up to my new position at Cobus.
Tell us more about your day-to-day tasks that your role involves.
For me, a typical day in the Cobus office involves a whole range of activities, which vary between organising the project plan, scheduling contractors, meeting the client on-site throughout the project, ensuring projects are kept within time scales and keeping projects within the set budget.
What are your favourite parts of the job so far?
So far, I would say my favourite part of my job is working with and creating close relationships with our clients.
What’s the most recent project you’ve been working on?
I’ve recently been working on a project with Dyball Associates Ltd, an energy supply business based in Worcester. This has involved a full fit-out of their offices, and the brief required us to fit partitioning, kitchens, electrical and data installations, flooring, decoration, signage, graphics, blinds and a large furniture installation.
Do you have any top tips for those looking to re-design their workspace?
If you’re preparing to do a renovation, I would recommend planning as far ahead as you can – this will help you avoid unnecessary slip ups along the way.
Currently, what are the most popular design trends that you’ve been working with?
At the moment, the combination of mixed wood finishes with a concrete effect is a popular trend.
What makes Cobus so unique?
Our team spirit definitely makes us unique – we all work together as a team, with great passion to achieve mutual goals. We are all really closely connected, like a family!
