We worked in a small team of three people; one of them was the team leader. The team leader was offered a different job role, which was accepted, and I was invited to take over as team leader.
Through this promotion, I gained a real sense of responsibility and learned new skills. Cardale had two locations at the time, one in Luton and the other in Brackley. The company decided that it would trade/operate out of Luton.
This created more opportunities throughout, which, to be honest, I did not really consider at the time as I enjoyed my current role. I was given the opportunity to run a completely different department focused on building doors. This involved working with a larger team, in a bigger area, with more significant responsibilities etc. I accepted the challenge.
Before I knew it, I was a Production Supervisor, working closely with the Production Manager. I was entrusted to make business decisions and gained lots of knowledge.
Novoferm has continued to give me opportunities and continues to create opportunities for others. I am now the Production Manager of Novoferm UK. I take great pride in what I do and strive to exceed expectations. I genuinely believe that you get out what you put in in life.
The business changed names, roles changed, management changed, and eventually, it became Novoferm UK. At Novoferm, I have worked across different departments, including production, transport, goods-in, and planning, and I have gained knowledge of the whole operation.
