Brookson People: Lee Trust

Thursday 4 October 2018

Lee Trust joined Brookson as a Payroll Admin in 2003. Since then, he has enjoyed three role changes and successive promotions. Now he's managing a team of three and working as Payroll Team Leader for the company.

Lee has lived in the North-West all his life, except for a brief spell spent in London when he was 17. He enjoyed his time living in the capital, but missed the lifestyle in the North, so decided to move back closer to his friends and family. Following a summer working abroad, Lee figured it was time to settle into a career. His first job was at Brookson, and he’s been with us ever since.

When Lee joined Brookson, the company had only one business line. Throughout his time with us, he has worked for a number of Brookson Group companies. He’s seen the company grow from a small family run business into the nationwide operation it is today, taking advantage of the opportunity to work with a variety of different people, taking additional responsibilities along the way.

Looking to the future, he is most excited about being part of the evolution of products and services that the company has to offer, and the chance to expand into different sectors. Lee commented that one of the best things about the culture at Brookson is that everyone continues to search for “the better way”, meaning that there’s always a chance to develop skills and gain more autonomy without the fear of the role becoming stagnant.

Lee’s favourite things about Brookson are the family orientated environment and strong reward culture for hard work. He feels that even as the company has grown, he has kept relationships, even up to Director level – which is important for feeling like he has input as a valued member of the team.

Fifteen minutes of fame

One thing that few people know about Lee is that he was once on the 90’s game show, Man O Man. He claims that he didn’t know he had been entered and that a friend had signed him up (ok, Lee). Remarkably, he ended up coming second!
