Warehouse Supervisor

My role is varied, and changes from day to day. Tasks involve, opening the warehouse, taking delivery of stock, organising and motivating the team, ensuring health and safety standards are adhered to, monitoring standards, productivity, security, attendance and sickness, making rotas, carrying out basic staff appraisals and disciplinary issues, looking for cost efficiencies, along with assisting the organisation of major events, such as our end of season sales.

Career

Gardenworks-self employed

Landscape Gardener

I was a self employed landscape gardener, taking on a range of jobs, from a simple lawn cut, to a full design and build project, for both private and commercial clients. I built the business up, and had some prestigious customers, to include various primary schools, McDonald's fast food sites, and a large conference and wedding venue in the centre of Manchester, along with a large number of private jobs.

Unfortunately, owing to the economic climate, and a poor winter, this venture became no longer viable.

Virgin Trains

Service Manager

I joined Virgin as a Steward initially, slowly rising through the ranks to Service Manager. Working in partnership with the train manager-my job was to ensure our customers had a safe, enjoyable and timely journey! Although, a large part of my role involved managing a small team of staff serving upto 140 freshly cooked meals to the first class section of the train, there were many other demands made on me-from dealing with straight forward queries, to dealing with drunk and violent travellers, often in volatile situations.
