Before becoming office manager, Gareth was very proud to be 'Team Leader'.
His self-importance knew no bounds and was only inflated further by his active service in the Territorial Army.
He also has an incredibly unsophisticated approach to wooing women.
Gareth is extremely possessive of his stapler and desk space. His considerable naivety allows others, in particular Tim, to make him the butt endless put-downs and practical jokes.
His devotion to duty was repaid with a promotion when boss David Brent was made redundant. He acclimatised to his new position of authority very easily.
