It has taken a lot of hard work and dedication to get to where I am.

Eventually we introduced a new shift pattern, meaning we ran 4 shifts and the new shift required a shift leader, I therefore applied for the job and was successful. Following the growth of the company, another new role become vacant which my skillset and knowledge seemed suited for. I applied, and so here I am now as Technical Service Manager.
