From Waste Controller to Production Manager (18 years service)

Waste Controller → Production Manager

I joined Control Techniques without any formal qualifications as a Waste Controller. My job was to collect the waste on the shop floor. It was an interesting first job and helped me get to know the people in the company. The following year I transferred to a Test Operator role and was given in-house training to help me do the job. Shortly after I transferred to a Packing Cell Operator’s role which gave me further experience in production.

There are many opportunities for progression at Control Techniques so at this time I transferred to the Test & Packing Team. I achieved a Fork Lift driving certificate and undertook a First Aid course. My next progression was as an Assistant Supervisor at which point I started to attend management training courses.

A year later I was promoted to Supervisor and was given the training needed to help me manage my team safely and efficiently. I enjoyed my role and was motivated to continue my achievements and was promoted to a Plant Supervisor managing a team of 34.

Most recently, I was promoted to Production Manager and have since attended further management development training courses. I have held this role for the past 5 years and during that time I have had the opportunity to experience global travel with the company and have been supported to achieve the Institute of Operations Management Level 5 Diploma.
