So, Why Work for The Loft Boys?
It’s a reasonable question! Why would you want to come and work for us anyway?
Well, to start with, we are a family business which started as a husband and wife team – Dean on the tools and Sharron organising everything – which has grown to a team of 20+ staff. You could say we’re a big family; because of that, we look out for each other and give a helping hand when needed.
And this ethos extends to everything we do, including to our all-important, and highly valued customers. We bend over backwards to accommodate their needs, just as we would for our own family, and ensure that each job we do is as close to 100% perfect as humanly possible! This means using state-of-the-art quality control procedures on every job AND more straightforward methods like simply allowing plenty of time to get the job done. This dedication to high standards and thorough workmanship is why we’re the leader in our industry.

Do we make the odd mistake? Of course, we do, but we quickly own those and learn from them to become even better.

We don’t want you to just take our word for it – here’s a selection of our team on why they enjoy working for us:
JaySurveyor“I’ve been working for The Loft Boys since July 2021 and started at the company as a fitter’s mate, then progressed to a team leader, and then took the offer of a role as a surveyor. What makes me want to continue working here is the people I work with, the high-quality service we provide and the decent wages. Compared to my previous jobs, I feel very comfortable working for The Loft Boys. It’s a great working environment with a company that is striving to grow. I’d describe the company as professional, friendly and ambitious.”
NathanTrainee Fitter“My main responsibilities are boarding, insulating and helping the team leaders. What makes me want to continue working here is that I enjoy the company of the people I work with. I start my day by helping to load the van and then helping to complete installs. One memorable encounter with a teammate was with Wayne who helped me improve my skills. I’d describe the company as friendly.”
“I’ve been working for The Loft Boys since October 2019 and I’m responsible for taking in all the enquiries and booking surveys. As such, I’m the first point of contact for the company.
What makes me want to continue working here is the fact I enjoy communication and problem-solving with customers. Plus, I work with an amazing team and manager.
My day is pretty packed, from scheduled calls to incoming enquiries. Recently we’ve had an influx of enquiries, so it has been a challenge for the sales team. But we have worked out strategies to help reduce stress. I really look forward to seeing an enquiry turn into a sale!
Compared to my previous jobs this is a smaller company and so all worries are addressed and dealt with. I’d describe the company as friendly, efficient and stretch-armstrong!”
GeorgeTeam Leader and Expert Fitter
“I’ve worked at The Loft Boys since October 2020 and my job is to aid and advise all members of the operations department on how to complete jobs to a high standard. And on top of that, I also handle installation jobs. One of the things that I enjoy most about working for The Loft Boys is the independence I have from running my own jobs. I also enjoy working on big jobs to a high standard as it gives my team and I, and the customer, great satisfaction!
This job is the most reliable one I’ve ever had and I’d describe The Loft Boys as professional, friendly and helpful. “
MatthewTrainee Fitter“I’ve been working at The Loft Boys since June 2022 my job is to aid team leaders with the installations. What makes me want to continue working here is the fact that I like the work that we do and seeing the transformation. I recently had a large 6-day job with George and it was nice to see the customer’s reaction at the end. What makes me look forward to coming to work is working with my teammate and finishing the jobs off. This job is a lot better than those I’ve had previously working here is like being in a family.”
TomSurveyor“I’ve worked at The Loft Boys since November 2020 and as a surveyor, I am the first face the customer meets. I advise customers on the best possible solution for their loft space, and I quote based on customer needs. I then liaise with customers answering any questions. What makes me want to continue working here is the fact I am always pushed to do better, because I feel respected by all members of staff, and because I enjoy my job. I look forward to coming to work because I like being on the road and being independent and I also enjoy meeting new people. I would use one word to describe The Loft Boys which is ‘family’. I started out as a fitter’s mate which I enjoyed. I was then made a team leader but the role wasn’t for me but I was then promoted to surveyor which I really enjoy.”
“My responsibilities at The Loft Boys include booking in and looking after the installation process; making sure the fitters have everything they need; managing the fleet vehicle maintenance; recruiting and interviewing potential new fitters; monitoring targets and data reporting/forecasting.
What makes me want to continue working here is the fact that I feel accepted and appreciated for who I am and what I can offer in terms of my skills and strengths. Excellent work is rewarded and personal growth and development are encouraged. My role is very varied and I enjoy having lots of different tasks and responsibilities. I love planning and organising so this job lets me excel at something I really enjoy.
In previous companies I’ve worked for my differences have caused me to feel excluded and like “the odd one out”. At The Loft Boys, I feel accepted and appreciated for who I am. Being part of the LGBT+ community and on the autistic spectrum, my strengths are well utilised whilst my manager and colleagues understand my challenges.
I would describe The Loft Boys as a relaxed and friendly atmosphere where everyone can excel at what they’re best at. People’s individual skills are acknowledged and used to their best advantage.”
