Get to know our Commercial Manager, Niall Shivers:
How long have you worked for Premier Electrics?
I began my career as Student Buyer in 2009 as part of my Higher National Diploma. I then decided to pursue a degree in Quantity Surveying and Commercial Management at Ulster University. I was lucky during difficult times for the Construction Industry that McLaughlin and Harvey offered me a full-time position in 2012. I spent 6 fantastic years with McLaughlin and Harvey before eventually joining Premier Electrics. On 16th February 2024, I will have been with Premier Electrics 7 years. I have been fortunate to have had great mentors throughout my entire professional career.

What is your current role at Premier Electrics?
I am Commercial Manager at Premier Electrics, working as part of a great team we are responsible for providing Commercial Assurance for the Business across our wide-ranging portfolio of Projects in UK & Europe.

What’s the best thing about working at Premier Electrics?
Premier Electrics give its’ people the tools to succeed and encourages development, teamworking and collaboration across all disciplines within the Business. The environment in Premier Electrics is unique; we have people who have walked these office corridors 20+ years who effortlessly blend with our new starts to help make them feel at ease. Celebrating success in this family / team environment is what I enjoy most about working here.

What do you do in your spare time outside of work?
I am lucky that I call Portstewart home these days so there is a world of activities on our doorstep. My Wife and 2 girls are good at filling the weekend calendar between trips to the parks, coffee shops, or the beach. (They will argue that my protected time is usually on a Saturday morning where I try and get out for a round of Golf!)
