Tim Canterbury is the Sales Rep in the Office, a job that he finds very boring but keeps at it, not thinking much about it until later in 'Series 1' after he turns 30. Tim has a strong friendship with Dawn, although there are a number of problems including shyness and Dawn's engagement with Lee ans their inabilty to communicate freely due to the feelings they both share. After David screws up a training day, Tim realizes that he has to get out of the Office before it becomes too late. His plans are put on hold when David makes him Senior Sales Rep. Tim shares a strong rivalry with Team Leader, Gareth Keenan.
Tim works on a connected desk with Gareth which gives the two another thing to argue about.
