  • Kamil

    Kamil started at the Garrick Club in 2017 as a Maintenance Assistant and was promoted to Maintenance Manager during the Covid-19 pandemic. I come from a hotel background, so the work is similar, but the atmosphere is far more pleasant and the Members really take care of the staff. The ALC also shows great support for staff. I recently attended an event with staff from other Clubs in the same role as me and we got to enjoy a tour of two other Clubs which were undergoing some work. It was really interesting and it was great to meet people in similar roles. We now have a network group we can contact each other for help with suppliers and so on.
