Coffee Break Q&A

What’s your name?
Rob Spivey

What’s your role at Absolute?
Marketing Executive

When did you join Absolute?

Why did you choose to join Absolute?
The company had a great set of people working for it, great career prospects and a chance for me to develop my skills while being part of a rapidly growing team.

What’s your favourite bit about the job?
I'd be lying if I said that bacon sandwich Friday's wasn't a strong contender, but really I love being able to visit an empty space at the start of the project and then return at the end to see our design team's vision brought to life by our brilliant site team and finding out how this has helped a client achieve their business aims.

What’s been your favourite project at Absolute so far?
Engage - Quite a remarkable transformation of space. An abandoned floor in Munro House converted into one of the most exciting offices on the Leeds City skyline.

What’s been your favourite building to work in?
Calls Landing - An iconic building right in the heart of the city centre that has a really unique quality. Also love that it's situated right on the side of the canal!

Where are you from originally?

What do you enjoy doing when you’re not at work?
Photography, playing cricket and binge watching Netflix.

What’s you favourite place in the world and why?
I love Filey for the sea and peacefulness, but the Caribbean is incredible. White beaches, blue seas and so much to do & see.

What’s one thing you couldn’t live without?
The 'Skip Intro' button on Netflix.

What’s your biscuit of choice at work?
A new biscuit to the table, but I'm a sucker for a Cadbury Shorties

What’s your favourite TV show?
Suits / Game of Thrones / Making a Murderer are joint first, but I’ve also have a soft spot for Gogglebox or Can't Pay We'll Take It Away!

Who’s your favourite band?
I’d have to go a bit alternative here and choose Yellowcard

What’s the next item on your bucket list?
I’d love to visit Toronto or Tokyo!

If you won the lottery, what’s the first thing you would do?
Pay off my student loan and celebrate with my friends & family with the tenner I’d have left!

If you could be a fictional character, who would you choose and why?
Harvey Specter - he’s a sharp suited boss man!

If you could learn to do anything, what would you do?
If I could go back and do everything over again, I’d love to work in cinematography

If you could have one superpower, what would you pick and why?
I’d have a memory where I would remember everything I’d ever heard, seen or read. At least this way my Inbox could remain empty!
