Here at Kajima, we take great pride delivering a diverse assortment of sports and social activities in the heart of local communities.
A key member of our Community Team is Operations Manager Pullen Agbon-ifo who is based at our flagship school Haverstock in Camden.
If you are ever lucky enough to visit Haverstock School in the evenings or during the weekend, you are very likely to see Pullen’s friendly face as he coordinates his staff to manage the out-of-school hours lettings.
It is Pullen’s responsibility to supervise a monthly footfall of ten thousand at the site whilst ensuring this has no impact on the day to day running of the school. This involves carefully managing the relationship with the school, the facilities management contractor (Mitie), the hirers and the hirers activity participants. He must also manage the impact of facility use during the evening and weekends with our neighbouring residents. It’s a challenging role which involves a delicate balance of meeting the needs of all parties involved.
We managed to grab Pullen for a quick Q+A session to see what fun facts we could find out about him!
