Chiara Marchesi Joins On Tap Plumbers As Training and Office Manager
South African Chiara Marchesi has just joined our award-winning commercial plumbing firm to head the company’s training division and oversee our multiple office-based operations, such as payroll, invoicing, HR, apprenticeships and much more.
Chiara, who grew up in Johannesburg, came to England two years ago to visit her best friend, who has since returned home. Chiara had previously spent a year in the USA and within 3 days of arriving in the UK was offered her first job at commercial plumbing firm H2O. After 18 months she moved to Galeborough Electrical Mechanical Services and has now landed an extensive role at On Tap Plumbers, working directly with company Directors and Co Founders, award winning entrepreneur Anne Timpany and her husband Raff Agalliu
Chiara says “ I have thoroughly enjoyed my two years in the UK construction industry and I am looking forward to the challenges presented by 70 plumbers and 10 apprentices at On Tap Plumbers. I’m the first port of call for the payroll, contracts, invoices, payments, timesheets, holidays and HR. I am also responsible for training, managing the apprentices and health and safety. There’s a lot to do but it’s great working with Anne and Raff and in just my first two months I’ve already learnt so much.”
Anne Timpany says “Chiara is exactly the person we needed. She’s young, bright, full of energy and enthusiasm and incredibly capable across a wide range of essential activities which keep the company and our plumbers on track. She learns fast and like me has a complete no nonsense attitude so being a female in a male dominated industry does not phase her at all! “
