Episode 61 of Meet the Clickers is here and this week we have Reece Harbour sharing his thoughts on everything from self-checkout etiquette to an ice-cream only diet!
Hi Reece, I hope you’re well. Could you tell us all how you started at Click please?
I am well thank you, Alex. Just after university I started working at a car insurance company as a website developer and after a while I wanted more variety. I came across Click Dealer who had a vacancy and after a couple of interviews with Shaun, Graeme and Pete; I got the job!
How has your role progressed since then?
When I started out, I was working alongside Austin and Graeme helping to maintain the DMS. After a few months, Shane asked if I could also help him and Martyn with the website maintenance. There was a time where I was only working on the websites which is a great responsibility and I worked directly with web changes and web delivery. Now I float between the two doing what I can. I also started doing the daily stats which has been quite good and a nice responsibility. It’s a good variety from what I was doing originally.
If time and money were no issue, what hobby would you like to take up?
Without hesitation, boat restoration. I’d buy some old boats and fix them up then probably go sailing.
Favourite TV series?
Warehouse 13, Legion, Atlanta and Lost.
There are a few more to add to my list… What’re you interested in that most people haven’t heard of?
Tomb Raider comic books, they came out in the 90’s and disappeared after Tomb Raider Angel of Darkness the video game. I recently discovered them on eBay and was very much reminded of when I used to play the games on PS1/2. A lot of people would have heard of them back then but as it has been so long most of those people would have forgotten so I guess that counts, right?
That definitely counts, the Tomb Raider games were unreal! Where do you want to visit most in the world?
Any Scandinavian country or Canada, my partner and I are hoping we can move to Canada in a decade or so.
Can’t go wrong with either of those destinations. What do you wish you knew more about?
First aid and generally things that can be useful.
If you were the only human left on earth, what would be the first thing you’d do?
Sail the world, after finding a boat (free real estate, right?) whilst living off of ice-cream.
I wouldn’t mind commandeering Roman Abramovich’s boat! There are two types of people in this world. What are the two types?
Those who know two types of people and those who Google best ways to categorise two types of people.
If you could make one rule that everyone had to follow, what rule would you make?
For people to not use shopping trolleys in self-checkout areas as much as a “first world problem” as that sounds.
I like that a lot! What do you love most about working at Click?
The knowledge. The amount of people in the office provides a wealth of knowledge from vehicles to artisanal skills; it’s astonishing. Paul and I often talk about cooking and he’s given me some good tips on recipes that end up being well received. Jen and I talk about sewing and crafts. I’m sure your desk neighbour can teach you a thing or two about anything.
Great Answer Reece! I’m not too sure what Joe could teach me though…
I’m afraid that’s it for episode 61 of Meet the Clickers, don’t forget to come back next week for a fresh instalment. Make sure you click here to view our old interviews too!
