At MAT, we have a great team of people, and we are growing all the time! You might not meet everyone, but behind the scenes, we are all working together to make your project a success.
We celebrate everyone at Medical Air Technology, but we thought it would be fun to shine the spotlight on certain team members, so you can learn more about what it takes to work at MAT and what people like so much about being with us.
Roisin joined MAT in 2016 as a Purchase Ledger Clerk. We were only her second employer within accounts, and we don't show any signs of letting her go any time soon! In 2019, she was promoted to Assistant Accountant, in 2021 Project Accounts Manager, and then in 2022 she became our Finance Manager. This means that Roisin has had experience in many accounts roles in MAT, giving her a fantastic overview of the company.
When she first came to MAT, Roisin was working through her Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) qualification. With MAT's support, she completed her AAT exams and has now also finished her Chartered Institute of Management Accountant (CIMA) exams, achieving outstanding results at each level.
“Right from my first day at MAT, when I was just starting out in my accountancy career, I have had so much encouragement. I really appreciate the investment everyone here has made in me, from supporting me through my studies to recognising and celebrating my achievements each step of the way. I now head up a brilliant team – Julie, Susan and Karen – and learn more from my mentor Barry every day. Thank you, MAT!”
In 2013, Lee joined MAT as a member of the warehouse team, responsible for assembling our ECO-flow ventilation canopies. It didn’t take long before we recognised his potential, and he was put in charge of developing the warehouse team and creating the world-class R&D and assembly areas that play such an important role in our business.
In 2020, Lee became part of the Senior Management Team as Operations Director. He is a great example of how hard work, skill and dedication can take you right to the top at Medical Air Technology!
“As soon as I joined MAT, I knew that this was the place I wanted to be to take my career to the next level. Steve and the rest of the senior management team were a huge support right from the start, recognising my potential and helping me to develop it. I am really proud of what I and the company have achieved and look forward to what the future holds for us both.”
Mark has been with MAT since 2015, starting as a Junior Service Engineer. He quickly progressed to Service Engineer then Senior Service Engineer, which is the role he holds now with our facilities management division.
His job involves travelling the length and breadth of the British Isles servicing, installing and commissioning ultraclean ventilation systems, validating clean rooms and critical care ventilation systems, and training new Service Engineers. Each day is different, and Mark particularly enjoys it when the pressure is on to find the solution to getting theatres back up and running and compliant following a shut down.
“I recently worked with my colleague Jack to commission the new ECO-flow Stealth units at Wansbeck General Hospital. Jack and I started with MAT at the same time, so it’s always great when we are on the same job, sharing our positivity and enthusiasm. This was a full turnkey project, and it was very rewarding to be part of it from start to finish, seeing everything through to a successful handover.”
Rebecca has been with MAT since 2021, when she joined us as an Estimator. Prior to this, Rebecca, who started out as a maths teacher, had been living in Australia. On returning to the UK, she planned to retrain as a Quantity Surveyor, but when a recruitment company sent her our way, the stars aligned and she decided on a slightly different path.
Rebecca’s first interview was done online, as COVID was still making it difficult to meet face to face. Her second interview with Steve, Will and Adrian quickly followed and she was very happy to accept when offered the Estimator role.
“I have never met anyone as enthusiastic as Will – he is really passionate about the industry and what MAT does. I very quickly felt that I could see myself working here, and I’ve never looked back. One aspect of the job that I particularly enjoy is compiling competitive tenders – learning about projects, getting quotes and pulling everything together. It’s great when we win (and I am pleased to say that we usually do!), and the success makes all the hard work worthwhile, but even if we don’t, the process is really interesting and prepares us for the next one.”
Would you like to be part of our team? If so, we would love to hear from you. We are always on the lookout for new people to join us and help take MAT to the next level – and you could be that person!
