Meet the team
Tareq - Senior Engineer & Company Founder
Tareq’s built up over 16 years’ experience in the engineering industry, with more than 8 focussed specifically on heating. As well as being Gas Safe registered, he’s trained with lpg & oil. Tareq is a little bit obsessed with new technology and unraveling complex problems, so he’s focussed a lot of his energy of late on becoming an expert in renewables and underfloor heating.
Tareq’s master plan was to upscale from sole trader to company founder so he could stop doing paperwork every evening. As such, he’s recruited a team of highly qualified and personable engineers, and two super efficient business and admin experts. Together they ensure quality standards are kept sky high and paperwork never piles up.
Christian - Senior Engineer
Christian has 20 years’ experience in the trade. Plumbing and heating runs in the family as Christian’s dad was also an engineer and taught him (almost) everything he knows. Christian is fully qualified to work on domestic gas appliances, unvented systems, solar thermal, heat pumps and is Gas Safe registered.
When he’s not connecting complex pipework, Christian walks miles with his dog Buddy and spends time with his lovely family. In his more youthful days he could be found on the slopes of Tignes and Val d’Isere but know he mostly just dreams about them.
Callum - Engineer
Callum has a decade of experience under his plumbing belt and specialises in boiler and heating system installations. Callum puts his heart and soul into every job and loves every minute of it. There’s nothing better, as far as Callum is concerned, than putting in a brand new boiler and hearing the hum as it kicks into action.
We think that Callum’s favourite hobby is also plumbing and heating, but when his family manage to drag him away, he mostly enjoys spending time just hanging out with them and his collection of handbag dogs.
Mike - Engineer
Mike is a super enthusiastic Engineer. A top grade student throughout his apprenticeship with Roost Heating, his pipework is always impeccably tidy and his hair is always coiffed. Mike’s plumbing preferences include bathroom installation, boilers and challenging tangles of pipework.
In his spare time Mike likes to keep fit in the gym or get out and about on his bike (his wheelie skills were pretty impressive during our recent ‘Ride for Mind’). When asked about his claim to fame, the choice was a little limited. So we’ve had to go with the fact that he once met the Cheeky Girls.
Sam - Apprentice Engineer
Our blue-eyed boy, Sam is a seriously hard working apprentice and what he may lack in stature, he more than makes up for in skill. Sam spends most of his days working alongside Callum (they’re the company ‘Dream Team’) and he’s learnt so much that he’s excelled at all of his exams so far.
Sam is a semi-professional moto-cross rider as well as an excellent heating engineer. Most weekends he’ll be found on a bike, somewhere in the back of beyond - enjoying himself a bit too much and getting extremely muddy.
Aidan - Apprentice Engineer
Apprentice Aiden is the strong and silent type but he’s always keen to get stuck in and is a huge asset to the Roost Team.
If Aiden gets a far-off look in his eye, it’s more than likely he’s composing a tune whilst he’s tuning your pipework. By night, he’s a singer songwriter - performing acoustic live sets at local bars and clubs - so if you think he looks familiar it’s probably because you’ve spotted him singing. We think he’s not half bad and could well have a future in music - but if not he’ll have a great alternative career with us here at Roost.
Berni - Administration Manager
Berni has a secretarial background and over 15 years’ experience of being organised. As a caring soul she makes sure that we always deliver the best customer service experience possible. Loving a natter, Berni has a passion for social media marketing and works closely with Our Tiny Marketing Company to put together our blog and facebook posts.
Busy Berni loves a little bit of art and craft but when she’s not manning her glue stick she’s out running. Having trained hard of late, she’s taken part in quite a few charity running events and has raised a tidy sum for Cancer Research.
Emily - Business Development Manager
Emily ‘s CV is peppered with all sorts of roles: In the past she’s managed ski resorts, helped launch Purplebricks (the online Estate Agent) and set-up her own recruitment business. Now she spends a lot of her time finding new ways to make sure Team Roost runs as efficiently as possible and has the best best people in it.
The biggest tree hugger of the bunch, Emily always prints double sided, enjoys travelling to inspirational places and is a qualified yoga instructor. Om.
