Meet the team

At Ray Grahams we employ around 30 trained and helpful staff. You can email or pick up the phone at any time and ask to speak to one of our members of staff, they are always glad to help. You can meet just a few of them below...

Ray, the Skipper

Ray - The Skipper

Ray got his first wage from his uncle Ray when he was just six years old when he vacuumed the shop floor after school. Growing up he worked in every part of the business from delivering goods to stocking shelves. He was promoted to counter duties at the age of 10 and today runs the business. Ray is involved in every aspect of the business – you name it, he knows it. Over the years, he has built up a number of friendships with both staff and customers. And even though Ray has been in the business since childhood, he still learns something new every day.

Anton, the Drill Driver

Anton - The Drill Driver

Anton runs the tool department where he has become an expert in this field. Over the years he has built up a dedicated team of tool experts and took Ray Grahams to win the coveted best tool retailer in Britain. Anton has a vast knowledge of DIY; he manages the tools department and is responsible for buying the products. Like Ray, he started working at Ray Grahams at a young age, taking his first job at the age of 14. Anton loves the different every day challenges of his job but the best part for him is making deals with customers.

Glen, the Jack of all Trades

Glen - Jack of all Trades

Glen has worked at Ray Grahams for 15 years and can usually be found in the bathroom showroom. Glen handles all the ordering in this department and does everything from cutting keys to mixing paint. He never gets bored at work because he loves dealing with the public.

Shelly, Wing Command

Shelly - Wing Command

Shelly manages the general day-to-day running of the administration department but while she spends most of her time working in the office, she is often spotted out on the floor helping customers. Shelly has been working at Ray Grahams for 18 years and she still loves it. She loves the diversity of her role and says there is always something to keep it interesting.

Kathleen, Wing Support

Kathleen - Wing Support

Kathleen handles the office duties along with Shelly. She spends her day tasked with admin, invoicing and accounts. But like her fellow staff members she also works in the showroom. After 14 years, she still enjoys it when customers come back to tell them about their project and give positive feedback about the advice they were given.

John, Money Man

John - Money Man

John is the accounts manager at Ray Grahams and has been in charge of credit control for 35 years. He has stayed with the company because it's a family run business and over the years he has become good friends with all the staff. He loves it because it's not like working in a corporate environment, everyone is really warm and there is always someone there if there are any problems.
