Regional Operations Manager - South East
I have had a long and varied career with Elliott. Starting at grass roots level, I have continued to learn and progress all aspects of the business and have been mentored and inspired by great people around me.
Elliott invested in me and gave me the opportunity to spend some time in Madrid, improving my product knowledge, which gave me renewed vigour and inspiration to help bring Moduflex into the UK.
Opportunities like this enabled me to progress and extend my experience into senior management using my skills and experience to help my team deliver our vision and company goals.
Working at a fast pace and ever changing industry like Elliott I have always been inspired by the great team of people I work with and built solid working relationships with my team at all levels.
I relish the challenges and what the future holds for Elliott.
Supervisor - Scotland
Why do I love working for Elliott…
I thrive on pressure, Elliott is a constantly busy business, the depot never seems to stop. I am lucky that the site I work in is close to home. The people that I work with are genuine and we all want the same things at the end of the day, we just want to get the units ready and do a good job. There is real feeling of commitment from the team I work with and they would go the extra mile for me if asked, and sometimes even when I don’t ask.
You can see things changing in the business and getting better for us all the time. The company gives back what you put in.
