  • Country Charm Furniture.

    Grant and I bought Country Charm Furniture which is a little one-man band furniture manufacturing and repair business, and he took on doing modifications and things like that as well. I’ve got a background in hardware in timber from my early 20s. Yeah, I’m a bit of an investigator as well, so if we don’t know how to do it or what to use, we’ll find something that works and locate the product or piece of metal or rubber that we actually need to achieve the outcome that we need. Every job’s a challenge because every job is different. As I say to the guys in the workshop – “There’s no day ever the same, no job ever the same.” Safety was becoming more and more of a concern with the growth of the business, more and more staff on board, and it was something I had not encountered big time in my whole work history. It had never been one of my jobs. And then we happened upon Employsure and I was like – “ah yeah, let’s do this,” because that way that’s all done and dusted and correct, and we can rely on everything being just exactly right. I love knowing that we’ve got it all there and we’ve got the backup of Employsure, you know from contracts right through to safety. I have actually recommended Employsure to quite a few business owners, whether they’re new business owners or existing just for the fact that you suddenly have that safety net, all the information you need in one place to make sure that you’ve got it right.
