Two-and-half years ago Shaun Atton made what he considers his “best career move”. He switched from being a regional service manager at Auto Windscreens, looking after London and the east of the country, to becoming the business’s group fleet manager, responsible for 81 company cars and 360 vans.

Fleet was initially just a project – he was asked by the operations director to look at the fleet department from an operational point of view to streamline processes – but Atton says he “fell in love with it” and chose not to return to his regional manager’s role.

“Some people might see that as a backwards step or a sideways step but it’s not; it’s the best career move I’ve made so far,” Atton says. “I love it, it’s so fast-paced. Every week there is something different happening.”
