When James Bowker finished his electrical apprenticeship with Lancashire County Council, he knew he had to embark on his 2394 and 2395 Electrical Inspection and Testing courses to gain the qualifications needed to progress in the industry. In September 2017, James joined Lantei as a Housing Test engineer, a role that saw him on the roads, ensuring houses were fully compliant and safe, certified, and fully documented for Lantei’s clients.

Despite his extensive electrical engineering skills, James was keen to push himself even further, and after just two years he began to spend more and more time in the office, utilising his expert knowledge to consult with engineers and verify their reports. Eventually, James was given the responsibility of helping to approve Housing engineer reports, ensuring that each one he checked was fully correct and up to standard. Keeping tenants and clients safe is Lantei’s foremost responsibility, and James is an essential asset in continuously maintaining this standard.

His dedication and reliability led to James’ promotion to Housing Electrical Manager; the management knew what he was capable of, and what his invaluable skills and knowledge could accomplish for the benefit of the team. His role now encompasses the vital role of quality checking engineer work, ensuring all jobs are being conducted up to the high standard intrinsic to Lantei. This role is incredibly important to prevent mistakes, safeguarding our tenants and clients, and upholding Lantei’s strict standards for quality checking.

James celebrates his 5-year Lantei anniversary this year, and it is safe to say the team would not be the same without him.

I originally began working with James when he was working as an Engineer for Lantei 3 years ago. I knew after the first couple of weeks that he was one of our best engineers, always willing to go the extra mile; his work ethic and technical knowledge was unmatched in the department. Since then, I have watched him develop in his career and become the Electrical Manager in the office, representing the Housing Department in the technical aspect of all our contracts. James is such an asset to our team and I’m sure he will continue his success at Lantei for many years to come.
