"My role at CSS ensures that we are fully compliant within our industry and that our team is aware, protected and supported in their working environment."

Louise Hensman – HQSE Manager

"When I started working in the AV industry, I didn’t realise how much I would enjoy doing so. CSS has helped to turn my enjoyment into a real passion and support for my career progression has only grown stronger and stronger."

James Williams – Engineer and prgrammer

"Watching CSS’s growth over the past 14 years of my employment has been fantastic; and I am lucky enough to say, all in the company of some genuinely lovely people."

Amanda Theodorou - Accountant

"It’s fair to say I have been here a long time, longer than most in fact. But it’s always great to see youngsters join our team and help them learn the ropes."

Michael Haydon - General Manager

"My role is to support clients once the installation is complete. Keeping in touch also allows me to deal with any issues as and when they arise and to resolve them quickly and efficiently."

Jude Martins - Client Support Manager

"Commissioning a project is always a busy time, but once things have settled down and our work is complete, I love walking the site and testing our finished systems."

Jon Brown - Senior Project Manager

"The most rewarding part of designing a project is seeing your designs come to life from the initial concept through to the finished project."

Simon Fisk - Design Manager
