Meet the Team


John Ross


I'm John and I started JR Pat Testing in 2014 as a one-man band. Over the years the business has grown into a national company, providing PAT and other core compliance services. We also deliver E-Learning in over 100 accredited courses covering a wide range of subjects from Fire Marshalling to Mental Health Awareness, Social Media, and Business Development. I am delighted with our Shout Out Community section on our website where we Shout Out about great causes, enterprises, charities, and people. We welcome any groups, individuals and SME's who would like us to champion them.


Niki Rounding

Client Account Manager

I’m Niki, I joined JR PAT Testing in February 2023, and what a journey it has been. The business has grown from strength to strength. John’s dedication and commitment not only to the business but to us as a team is incredible. My role at JR is a client account manager, I manage some pretty large contracts and enjoy building relationships with my contacts and our lovely engineers. In my free time you will catch me at the side line cheering on my football crazy sons, trying my hardest to master the offside rule.


Julie Lammin

Customer Service and Operations Manager

I’m Julie and have an all-encompassing role at JR including contract management, recruitment and overseeing the admin team. I am passionate about the business and a stickler for doing things properly – so much so that proof reading seems to land on my desk! My background includes time served in legal, medical and as a town clerk for many years. When asked what I like most about working at JR it is, without doubt, the respect and care we have for each other. When I’m not at work I enjoy walking on Dartmoor with my dogs, reading, music and spending time with my ever-increasing family. I escape to the theatre as much as possible – musicals, plays, ballet, opera, anything goes!


Richard Strafford

Commercial and Technical Support Manager

I’m Richard and I joined JR PAT Testing in March of 2023 having worked in this industry for what must be closing in on 20 years now. I love working with our fantastic team and watching as the company grows even further, something never in doubt with the fantastic ethics it is based on. I’ve learnt that John and the company not only cares for our staff and customers but also for the wider community as a whole with our Shout Out page growing daily. Lastly and to keep on record, I am the current JR PAT Axe Throwing Champion (stand well away if you ever play with John) and please do not listen to anyone if they say I’m a fan of Karaoke, although the urge to sing The Lion Sleeps Tonight is never more than a whim away….


Rob Duncan


I’m Rob and I’m the newish to the team but that hasn’t stopped it from being an incredible start to my career here at JR PAT testing. Working with such an amazing team has made every day a great day to be at work, every day brings new challenges and I relish them all. I worked in various roles through various locations around the UK and Canada and I find my strength in teams and supporting a common goal. When I’m not working I’m spending time with my dog Snowie or being a movie/ video game nerd (a bit of a wasted youth you might say)


Mel Roberts

Business and Training Manager

I am the Business and Training Manger, my role consists of managing the general business, managing contracts, booking engineers, and dealing with day-to-day enquiries. I also manage our E Learning platform and am helping to develop this as I truly believe in E Learning as a way of gaining more qualifications and knowledge. I am also responsible for PAT Testing Training and am developing this into a virtual classroom as well as face to face. The role is very busy and ever diversifying which I love. How did I get to this role,? John has given me the opportunity to utilise all my experience from recruitment, management, training, and employability to make a position that is always stretching me and giving me challenges, which is healthy in the workplace. Outside of work ,I love family life and have a wonderful husband, amazing children and adorable grandchildren who keep me very busy. I have a passion for cooking and love to entertain friends. I really enjoy spending time out in our motorhome, either at festivals or camping with friends, meeting new people and I do enjoy a Gin and Tonic. One of my favourite motto’s is: Life is too short to hold grudges and be angry, why waste the time and energy!
