Our Team

Julia Robinson

Julia is Arbtech’s Business Manager. Every project that we assist clients with (in excess of 2,000-odd a year) requires an enormous amount of ‘back-office’ admin to keep the Arbtech machine firing on all pistons and ensure that you receive the very highest standard of service, from enquiry to invoice.

Julia started out overseeing a small team of dedicated staff at head office, where all of our finance, HR and business administration is centrally controlled from. Today, alongside Chris, she reports directly to Rob. Before joining team Arbtech, Julia was a manager at Marks & Spencer for over 10 years; leaving the corporate world to help create and launch a brand new farm shop in North Wales.

After the successful launch, she began looking for a new challenge and a company culture that could allow her to stretch her abilities and take up more responsibility; where she found us. And we’re ever so grateful she did.

Julia has been with us 3 years.

Robert Oates, director says:

Julia applied to us speculatively over year before we hired her, having stumbled upon our website and careers pages. Subsequently, I met with her at Prezzo and we chatted over lunch. Julia presents very well, is extremely intelligent and loves to be challenged. (Perfect!) While we didn’t have a role for Julia at that time, we kept in touch and mutually agreed that when Arbtech reached the point where her skill set overlapped with gaps in our business, we’d make the arrangement more formal! 12 months later, she’s sat opposite my desk and putting me to shame with her ruthless productivity!
