Case Study

Beverley Clay at Darwen Diesels

Beverley says: “Our products are specialised and come from more than 30 different suppliers around the world so I need to keep on top of things. Usually, I get in touch with them via email or on the phone, but in the 18 months since I started the purchasing job, I’ve travelled to Europe, Australia and Singapore. I get a real satisfaction when the products finally arrive in out warehouse – it can take months sometimes.”
Having worked at the company in Blackburn, Lancs, for seven years, Beverley, has worked her way up through the ranks of the logistics side of the business.
“I started out in stores and then moved into export. There I had to master how to get things shipped overseas – I got to know all the shipping and customs rules around the world.”
During that time, Beverley has done a City & Guilds Level 2 and Level 3 in Logistics and got a Medal of Excellence last year.
