Staff Profile: Laszlo

Meet our Potting Supervisor Laszlo – he’s been working at Johnsons of Whixley for four years, after moving to the UK from his hometown in Hungary.

In his profile, Laszlo talks about what he enjoys about working at our nursery, what brought him to the UK and what he likes about living here.

 

This is the first of a number of profiles from our staff who have moved to the UK after living in other European countries.  

 

Name: Laszlo Csanyi

Age: 20

Hometown :  Baja, Hungary

 

How long have been in the UK?

Four Years

 

What were your reasons for choosing to settle in the UK?

My older brother and father came over to the UK in February 2014 to work. After they had being living in the UK for a while my mum, myself and my younger brother and sister moved over here. My parents sold everything back home to live and work here.

 

Who did you come to the UK with?

My family

 

How did you come to work for Johnsons?

I couldn’t carry on the studies I had done in Hungary so I got better with my English over the first 6 months here and an agency firm called Jark phoned me to ask if I wanted to work at Johnsons.

 

What is your current role within the company?

Potting supervisor

 

What does a typical day for you at Johnsons consist of?

I start off with a team brainstorm and plan the day, then I get my team together and talk through what needs to be done. We generally pot 5L & 10L plants.

 

Has this been your only role at Johnsons? (promoted etc.)

I have always worked on potting and learnt from my previous supervisor Brian who helped me with the knowledge I have now. I was then offered a full time contract and a promotion to be the Potting Supervisor in April 2016. 

 

What’s your favourite thing about working for the company?

I enjoy what I do and enjoy a challenge. I get on well with everyone and have always had great support from the management.

 

What’s your favourite thing about living in the UK?

I enjoy the loud music in pubs and clubs and there are lots of choices here compared to in Hungary, such as more music.

 

What are your ambitions, in work and in life?

I would say it was a big step becoming a supervisor I am really happy with that as a first step.
