In the Driving Seat with Adam Yates
Welcome to the second in our new series of interviews called,’ In the Driving Seat,’ aimed at giving us the opportunity to speak to a different member of the James Lynch Team so you can get to know them better.
Second up is our Engineer, Adam Yates. Twenty-five year old Adam has worked with us for the last five months, but it’s not the first time he’s been part of the team. He worked with us five years ago and when the opportunity presented itself he decided to come back, which we’re really pleased about.
Tell us what your job
I keep a check on what comes into the garage and sort out any problems etc. I love getting stuck into the technical side of things. I love working at Lynch’s, I must do, I come back after all.
Tell us something nobody know about you?
That is really difficult. I’m an open book so everyone probably knows everything about me already.
I like to do up vintage tractors and go to steam rallies but everyone at work already knows that!
How have you found the various lockdowns?
Other than social distancing measures, work’s been the same so there’s been no real change there. The hardest thing has been not being able to see my friends.
What’s the first thing you’ll do after lockdown has lifted?
Definitely go to the pub and see my friends – it’ll be good to catch up.
Have you got any hopes for the future?
I’m really happy in my job and they’re a great team. Maybe one day I’d like to move up the ladder but I’m in no rush.
I’m going to rebuild the Land Rover I bought to do up– that’ll keep me busy!
