In commemoration of May the Fourth, otherwise known as Star Wars Day, we asked the office who their favourite Star Wars characters were and why. But these may not be the answers you were looking for...

Andrew_Walker.jpg

Andrew Walker, Managing Director:Anakin Skywalker, of course. (We basically have the same name!) Because some day he’d rule the galaxy! He’s not quite there yet, though..

 

 

  

Katie_Orr.jpg

Katie Orr, Head of Awarding Organisation:Rey. Because I end up totally smashing things with no prior training.’

 

 

 

Kelle_McQuade.jpg

Kelle McQuade, Head of End-Point Assessment Organisation:Amilyn Holdo. If I have a plan, I stick with it, all of you be damned.’

 

 

 


Adele_Williams.jpg

Adele Williams, Qualifications Development Manager:Qui-Gon Jinn. Because I know the ways of the force and can gather midichlorians to form the genetics of qualifications.’

 

 
  

Tom_Costigan.jpg

Tom Costigan, Operations Manager:R2-D2. I speak the language of data.’

 

 

 

 

Paul_Morrison.jpg

Paul Morrison, Quality Manager:Emperor Palpatine. Because he’s evil. And I also want the ability to shoot lightning from my fingers.’

 

 

 

Kyle_Green.jpg

Kyle Green, Website and Marketing Manager:Kylo Renn. Marketing purposes, mostly. I mean, my name is only 3 characters out. And I love his cross lightsaber.’

 

 

 


Ash_Smith.jpg

Ash Smith, Business Development Manager: Chewbacca. ‘I mean, the beard, the hair...what more do I have to say? Also, I can also do the Kessel run in less than 12 parcecs.’

 

 

Matt_Garrod.jpg

Matt Garrod, Client Relationship Officer:Luke Skywalker. I’m too short to be a Stormtrooper.’

 

 

 

 

Kelly_Venter.jpg

Kelly Venter, Qualification Quality Coordinator:Princess Leia. She always puts others first.’

Sophie_Al-Hakim.jpg

Sophie Al-Hakim, Quality Officer:Mon Mothma. I’m calm and serene and tend to stay away from danger.’

 

 

 

 

 

Grant Newlands, Client Relationship Officer:Darth Plagueis. Too awesome for his own good. He had a too-heavy lunch, took 40 winks and got taken out by his apprentice. It’s absolutely something that would happen to me.’
