Handymen extra-curricular activities

A recent handyman applicant included a cover note to explain that he was an aspiring actor and wondered if we could allow him occasional time off when acting jobs came up. He candidly admitted that being an actor meant that "for most of the time I'm unemployed".

We love handymen with strong outside interests, here are some of the activities / interests our handymen and office staff pursue when they are not fixing your shelves:

- Fly fishing
- Professional yacht skipper
- French literature
- Special constable
- Assessor for Institute of Advanced Motorcyclists
- Paraglider pilot
- Military helicopter pilot (*)
- Samaritans counsellor
- Clapper/loader (assisting cameraman on film set)
- Military fast jet pilot (*)
- Scout leader

(*) I'm cheating a bit with these two examples. We have handymen who used fly jets / helicopters, but from before they worked for us.

And that's just the ones I can think of off the top of my head. No doubt there are all sorts of other worthwhile and interesting things our guys get up, all of which makes for a great, well-motivated, friendly, interesting team.
