Meet the Clickers – Martyn Ball

We are back once again to bring you another episode of Meet the Clickers!

For episode 31 I caught up with Motorbike lover and ‘Egg in a bag’ enthusiast, Martyn Ball!

Martyn! How are we mate? Good to catch up. Could you tell the readers at home when you joined Click Dealer and how it came about?

“Hi Joe, not too bad thank you. Well I joined Click a little over 2 years ago now, March 2016. I had not long finished University and was just working as a doorman on the weekends.

I got told there was a position here in the Web Team by Kev who was here at the time, he is friends with my dad. So that’s when I sent in my CV and got an interview with Oli!”

Great stuff. Could you now tell us a bit about your role within the business and what it involves on a day-to-day basis?

“Well I’m now within the tech department as I made the move from Web not too long ago. I perform a large range of tasks day by day, from adding data into the database for redirects or blogs, to fixing any technical issues on the dealers websites.

I also help with developing new functionality and improvements for the websites.”

What is the most annoying habit that other people have?

“Other peoples annoying habits? Well, everyone here will be used to my rants, but INDICATORS! 99.8% of drivers these days don’t use indicators and it drives me mental!

It’s right next to your hand and lets people know where your going, so you don’t crash… even more important for me being on a motorbike. That’s probably the biggest annoying habit that other people have for me.”

Hahaha, 99.8% of drivers, that a bold claim Mart! What are the best and worst purchases you have ever made?

“Best purchase I have made is my Kawasaki Z800 Sugomi! Absolutely love my bike, it’s just fun to travel anywhere! Not too sure on what my worst purchase has been, I tend to get bored late at night and buy random things from eBay, so probably just purchased loads of rubbish haha.”

You have been known in the office for bringing in some quite random lunches in, such as scrambled egg in a bag. Could you tell us where you get these culinary ideas from?

“Well Joe, this was a ONE TIME event! Not too sure what went through my mind when I did that, there was a reason (excuse?) however.

People in the office seem to find it strange that I had sausage rolls for breakfast sometimes when I’m running late, not entirely sure why that’s so strange!?”

Sausage rolls not so bad, egg in a bag is a whole different kettle of fish Mart. What is the dumbest way you have ever been injured?

“Where do I start? Well probably the dumbest was when I put my hand through a window when I was younger… I had friends around, something happened, I got angry and slammed the back door, but I pushed it shut with the glass pane – unknowingly at the time – which smashed and cut open my thumb, wrist and an artery. Pretty messy, I must say!

Probably ONE of the stupidest ways, another 2 would be being hit by a Transit Van, and breaking my jaw, but stories for another day!”

Not an ideal situation that Martyn I must say. If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?

“This is a tough one! I would probably go with the ability to fly, simply so I could just go anywhere I want anytime.”

What is the hardest thing you have ever done and why?

“Probably the 3 Peaks Challenge! I found this quite mentally challenging, get up and down one mountain just to go to the next one and go up! But since then I have been up Snowdon 6 times! I want to try the challenge again, as I was 1 hour 30 minutes late and failed the challenge.”

The 3 Peaks Challenge was definitely a slog! What are you most looking forward to in the next 10 years?

“Hmm, I don’t really plan too far in advance at all! But maybe getting myself a house, with a nice big garage and many more motorbikes! Finally packing in the doors would be nice, would love to get my weekends back.

Maybe all my hard work in the gym every night will pay off and finally be ripped maybe!?”

Last but not least, what do you love most about working at Click?

“Just the general working environment, and the people! Click is a cracking place to work.”

Thanks for that Martyn, some cracking answers there. Big thank you for getting involved in Meet the Clickers, really appreciate it.

As for everyone at home, we hope you all enjoyed the latest instalment of our series, the next addition will be out this time next week but if that’s too long to wait, please click here to check out our other episodes.
