Jodie Bocking

Jodie Bocking - Staircase Designer

Realising the customer’s dreams by providing them with the very best staircase design while working within any site constraints is Jodie’s aim.  She places great emphasis on ensuring customers are completely happy and that each design works as well as it possibly can for the particular location.

Jodie started out as a staircase designer with Pear Stairs when she was just 18. She moved into other roles, with this and other companies, before moving back to design with Pear Stairs.  While designing is her preferred job, she feels she has a more complete business awareness due to having worked in other roles.

Beneficiaries have included Severn Hospice. She will run next year’s Manchester marathon, with money raised going to the Lingen Davies Cancer Fund at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.

Loves: Fitness and running, naturally!

Interpreting a website design and making it work perfectly, providing solutions as efficiently as possible, is Dan’s forte.

Julie Johnson – Transport Coordinator

After staircases have been designed and made, there’s another vital task – making sure they arrive at the right place at the right time in perfect condition.

Julie is responsible for liaising with production, customers and the Pear Stairs drivers to ensure this last important link in the service goes without a hitch. Routes are carefully planned and drivers are provided with detailed print-outs.  With around 100 staircases a week being delivered, getting every staircase to the destination on time is no mean feat. Feedback from the customers, who very often remark on the prompt delivery, shows that Pear Stairs is getting it right.

Julie says the satisfaction of providing a reliable service that is regularly praised by customers is one of the major rewards of the job.

 Helping others: Julie regularly helps out her parents and extended family.

 Loves: Cars, particularly her high-performance Vauxhall Astra VXR-R – there are only 25 of them in existence; and her Vauxhall Corsa with a C20XE throttle-bodied full race engine. She is a regular at various performance car shows/track days.


Hayley Love – Staircase Designer

Hayley made the transition from working as a hockey coach in schools to working on a computer-aided design system to produce high quality staircase designs with Pear Stairs, she misses her former job when the sun is shining – but not when it’s raining!

Hayley felt she needed a change, and as she was very successful at art and design in her schooldays, a design role seemed appropriate.

Job satisfaction for Hayley comes from a design done to the best of her ability, which is appreciated by the customer and results in an installation in someone’s home that will remain both practical and beautiful probably for generations to come.

Helping others: Hayley recently helped raise funds for Beat, a charity that helps people with eating disorders, by running a half marathon. She plans to do other runs for the same charity, and for groups that help people with diabetes.

Loves: Hockey – Hayley plays regularly for the Welshpool Ladies team. She also likes an occasional glass of rosé wine or prosecco.


Julian Marsh – Technical Sales

Accurate measurements are vitally important. Without them, the staircase, or some important part of it, will not fit to perfection.

Enter Julian Marsh, whose former job as a self-employed carpenter means he knows all about taking precise measurements and making absolutely certain that the proposed staircase will fit the location.  Julian goes out on site, visiting customers at their homes or businesses, advising them on the best type of design for their particular site situations. While double-checking measurements is an essential part of the job, Julian feels that meeting people as one of the public faces of Pear Stairs, discussing all the options with customers, is equally important and rewarding.

He loves to see a job well done, and is proud to think that he played a vital part in it.

Helping others: Manages Churchstoke Football Club – training on Tuesdays, matches on Saturdays.

Loves: Family life; Arsenal and Shrewsbury Town Football Clubs; lawn mower racing (has won several competitions); playing pool.
