Workshop Technician

Jay has 6 year’s experience at RSC and has recently achieved an NVQ Level 3 (to show that he’s not just a pretty face apparently?).

He can be tracked down in the workshop by the sound of his voice as he’s always singing (generally the wrong words)!
In his spare time he enjoys Motocross, afternoons out and walking his dog Babbachew.
He continues to develop a wide skill set and is especially proud of his lowering skills “how low can you go…”.

Interesting fact about Jay: He broke his collarbone during his first ever motocross race because he got knocked off by a girl.
