Brian Chorley pictured as a young man working at the Clark factory. See SWNS story SWBRjob. Britain's most dedicated worker is celebrating nearly 70 YEARS with the same company - and has never had a day off sick. Brian Chorley, 83, has been working in the same place since he was 15 - without one sickie. He started work at the C&J Clark factory in 1953 - and took a job in the factory to earn some money for the family in his school holidays. It was later turned into Clarks Village shopping centre where the grandfather-of-six still works for the guest services team.
