Meet The #teamPhoenix - Malc Hancock

Here at Phoenix Brickwork/Drywall/Scaffold, we are proud of every member of our team. Whether they're in the office or on-site, everyone works tirelessly to ensure that the overall stability and success of Phoenix is always at the highest level. 

Last week, Regional Manager Ian Knight told us that he has worked in the construction industry since leaving school in 1988.

Up next is Construction Director, Malc Hancock.

How long have you been at Phoenix for, and how have you progressed in your time here?

I’ve been at Phoenix for over 10 years.

What was your background in the industry before Phoenix?

Started as an apprentice Bricklayer at 15 years old working for various companies over the last 40 years in different roles, then I became a supervisor then contracts manager before finally getting the role of construction director.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

I’ve just recently bought a dog so go out walking with her and fishing when I get time. I also enjoy socialising with friends most likely in pub at weekends.

What's the best project you've been part of?

One of the best projects that I’ve been part of over the years was whilst working for Sheffield Council to help build a mural in the centre of Sheffield by using several different bricks to form four vultures sat in a branch. Another personal favourite was the Clifton campus project at Nottingham University for Phoenix.

Do you have any funny stories on-site that you'd like to share?

There’s always a lot of stories on-site everyday but one that stands out is seeing Carl Taylor get stuck up in the air on a cherry picker in the warehouse.

What would you say to those looking to get into the industry?

My advice is to be prepared to work hard in all kinds of weather, to listen and learn by asking lots of questions then the rewards will take place.

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

Being part of #teamPhoenix it’s like a family, we have some very good teams here and hope to keep them all working as a team and family.
