This week we are excited to get to know Greg Morton, who is a Buyer here at Phoenix. He is an important member of the team and we are delighted to learn more about him in meet the #teamPhoenix!



How long have you been at Phoenix for, and what do you enjoy about your job? 

I started at Phoenix in January 2022. I really enjoy how busy we are as a company, and the daily challenges we face in procurement. I particularly enjoy Thursdays because that's the day when I get to choose the music in the procurement office! 


Describe one of your favourite work memories? 

Finding out that Fridays at Phoenix means breakfast sarnies and an afternoon beer!


What did you want to be when you were younger? 

A primary school teacher. Though I don't know why; I don't really like kids!!!


Tell us about your first ever job? 

My first job was in Buxton, where I'm originally from, working the night shift at a bakery putting cakes into boxes. I feel like I've developed professionally since then. 


Share the best piece of advice that anyone has ever given you? 

Don't take criticism from someone you wouldn't take advice from.


What destination do you hope to visit one day? 

Iceland. I'd love to see the Northern Lights and go for a dip in the Blue Lagoon. The sun and I aren't friends, so I prefer to visit colder climates... and I like baths.


And finally, what does being part of #teamPhoenix mean to you? 

It means feeling like a valued member of an innovative, successful and ambitious team and I never feel like suggestions or concerns fall on deaf ears. From day one, right to the top of the company, everyone has been really welcoming and approachable, so I've never felt like just a number on the payroll.
