Grounds Maintenance Operative

About Chris Talamona

Born in Paris, Chris spent time in both the UK and France during his younger years, moving back to West Cumbria permanently in 2002. With over 15 years experience, Chris has worked at Westlakes since 2005 and joined BEC when grounds maintenance was brought in-house in early 2018.  Chris enjoys working outdoors and can usually be found out and about at Westlakes Science Park looking after the woods, grasslands and ponds on the Park and preserving the habitat of the local wildlife.  

Why BEC?

BEC are a great company to work for, I’ve known and worked with David and Steven for a long time, we’re a tight knit team that support and rely on each other.  BEC have invested in my skills and I’ve had the opportunity to get involved in different things and gain experience.  I really enjoy the environment and feel very connected to the Park, Westlakes is a brilliant place to work – and I work at other sites BEC own including Blencathra Business Centre near Keswick and the development sites in Whitehaven.  I’ve also been able to support community projects here at the Park – the forest school and nature trail – and engage with people through activities like tree planting.
