Warehouse Manager, Stoke Distribution Centre (NDC)
"I joined Pets at Home back in August 2003 as a Warehouse Operative and as a result of my hard work I was promoted to Section Leader in the December that year. The role included the day to day running of individual areas within the warehouse, delegating duties to all Colleagues on shift and mentoring and driving productivity.
In February 2010 I was promoted again to Senior Section Leader and felt that I was well on my way to progressing towards my goal of becoming a Warehouse Manager. I spent a lot of time shadowing Warehouse Managers in order to gain knowledge and experience in all aspects of managing a busy warehouse operation and I finally achieved my goal in February 2011 when I was promoted into my current Warehouse Manager role. The role involves the management of the warehouse operation including Goods Receiving/Outgoing, driving productivity though the close monitoring of KPI’s, keeping a tight
control on health and safety and all aspects of Colleague interaction/ engagement. As a Warehouse Manager I continue to grow my skills and always want to progress further. Good examples of this are the recent courses I have completed such as First Aid at Work and IOSH which have given me valuable health and safety knowledge. I have also more recently completed HR employee relations training and presentation skills training which have helped to further develop my skills and confidence.
I have certainly progressed a lot over the 10 years that I have worked here and I owe a lot to the team which have supported me in my development. I love working for Pets at Home, we have a great team and I would recommend it as a fantastic place for anyone to work."
