‘Put lots of hours in’
Last updated at 11:29, Tuesday, 15 January 2013
ANDY Steele has had a varied career and his latest venture has seen him open a new bar Ulverston. Besides his duties running Bar 6, in Daltongate, the 47-year-old is also the vice chairman of Ulverston Rugby Club.
What school did you go to?
What was your favourite subject?
What qualifications did you leave with?
I left with three A-Levels and four GCEs.
Did you go onto further/ higher education – if so, where and what to study?
I went to college but not university.
What was the best advice/ learning you got at school or college?
The best advice I got was to work hard.
What was your ambition before you got your first job?
My ambition was to go into the Royal Marines but it never happened. I ended up joining the shipyard.
Did you have a role model you looked up to and why?
My dad – he was in the RAF.
What jobs had your family done in the past?
My family have all been involved with the services. They have been in the army, the navy and the air force.
What was your first job?
My first job was in 1981, when I went to the shipyard as an apprentice.
What has been your career path between your first job and the one you do today?
I have done everything. I have done lots of different jobs, including painting planes in Hannover.
What's the best thing about your job?
The best thing about the job is the variety of different people that come in that you get to meet on a daily basis. The worst thing is the unsociable hours.
What one thing would you change about your job if you could?
If I could change anything it would be that government doesn’t put another tax on beer in the next few weeks.
What advice would you give someone starting out today?
I would say: put lots of hours in, work hard and make sure you have a family life and social life at the same time.
