My job on a day-to-day basis is quite varied and covers a lot of tasks that helps keep the Scotland & Northern Ireland office running smoothly.
I help compile a number of reports, and each week I collect data for our Fuel Price Surveys which give our members crucial information about the cost of diesel across the regions. A typical truck does 75,000 miles a year so saving the odd penny per litre here and there can make a massive difference to a firm’s operating costs. I also keep hauliers up to date with new traffic orders and roadworks in Scotland and Northern Ireland which help them plan their routes.
I particularly value speaking to our members and understanding what’s happening in their businesses and how they’re coping during these difficult times. I hope they feel they can approach me for help and advice because not only are they our members, but I consider them as an extended family and friends as there are so many great characters out there – in fact too many to mention.
