Commercial Manager

“I enjoy the variation of responsibilities, the fact I am always learning something new”

Which of our values is most important to you and why?

I’m proud to be a member of the Chartered Institute of Procurement and supply (MCIPS) and to have achieved this professional status through hard-work and determination. My role at Arvato allows me to put my studies into practice and to use my skillset to benefit the company. With the assistance of colleagues I’m proud to have initiated and implemented many new processes and procedures in the area of procurement and supplier management over the last few years and I continue to take pride in my achievements and area of expertise.

Why do you like working at Arvato?

Arvato has provided me with the opportunity to grow into my role, learning a great deal from colleagues past and present along the way. I have always felt appreciated, challenged and encouraged to be the best I can be. I particularly like the way Arvato engages with its workforce, encouraging feedback and praising a job well done. It was only yesterday that I received some great feedback from an external colleague on how he has particularly enjoyed engaging with Arvato and how he has felt so invigorated to work with such an enthusiastic team.

What do you enjoy most about your role?

Most things really! I enjoy the variation of responsibilities, the fact I am always learning something new, the capacity to work with many different people from various areas of the business and getting involved with exciting new projects.

Something people may not know about me…

This type of question is always the most difficult to answer especially as I’m pretty much an open book anyway, but you may not know that I am allergic to most animals but have a particular allergy problem with horses!!! I can’t go anywhere near them for fear of hives and asthma attacks and can sniff out a stable a mile away! You’ll never spot me at the races that’s for sure!
