Who is Ian Evans?
I am a proud dad of two and a family-oriented guy who loves spending time with his family, so much so I actually work with my brother. I am the older brother of Neil Evans (the Warehouse Manager at Solmedia) and I have enjoyed working alongside Neil for over 10 years! I don’t take myself too seriously and will most likely be found, a lot of the time, winding up my colleagues.
What is your Role at Solmedia?
My role at Solmedia is a Warehouse Operative and I work as part of a big team operating the warehouse. I am responsible for many tasks within the warehouse including picking orders correctly and accurately, ensuring products are packaged up safely and booking deliveries/goods in. You will also find me on “Freddy” the fork-lift as I am responsible for loading and unloading products from suppliers and taking stock counts.
What do you enjoy most about working at Solmedia?
Having around 10 years of experience, I believe I know the company inside and out and have a wealth of product knowledge. I enjoy being able to use this experience to solve problems in the warehouse. I also enjoy being able to share my knowledge with the rest of the team, working as a bigger team to achieve 99.9% picking accuracy regularly.
What do you do outside of work?
Outside of work, I have a passion for darts. You will mostly find me playing darts in the local leagues as well as playing County darts for the Salopians.
A fun fact about Ian?
I successfully ran just under 4 miles on Barmouth Beach in just under a 1 hour for charity. I did this after only 9 weeks of training and having not ran for around 20 years!
