I manage the household category of product testing at CHOICE. This includes our household appliance and whitegoods teams, who cover a long list of product areas: cooking appliances such as ovens, cooktops and coffee machines; whitegoods such as fridges, washing machines and dishwashers; cleaning products such as vacuum cleaners, steam mops and surface cleaners; heating and cooling, including air conditioners and electric heaters; babies and kids' items such as cots and strollers; tools for the garden, from lawnmowers to secateurs; and plenty more. I also manage our commercial testing through our commercial arm, Test Research.
It's a challenge to stay on top of all this, but variety is the spice of life, they say!
I've been with CHOICE since 2004 and before that I was in IT for 15 years. Working at CHOICE lets me exercise both sides of my brain; there's nothing I like better than diving into a stack of technical data and turning it into useful, readable info for you, our members. (Though sampling pizza and scones from our oven testing is pretty nice, too.)
