Careers: Fleet CV

Ian Robinson, car fleet administrator, DP World.

  • How many vehicles do you look after and what are they?

    I am currently looking after a fleet of 27 executive cars and one minibus.

  • How long have you been doing the job?

    I have been in the role for nine months. I took over the position after our previous car fleet administrator, Val Paul, decided she wanted to retire.

  • What do you enjoy most about the job?

    I enjoy meeting business managers from the car manufacturers. It is also great to get the chance to roadtest new vehicles at events such as Fleet News’ Company Car in Action.

  • Are there any parts of the job you dislike?

    I’m not a huge fan of dealing with the insurance claims we receive.

  • Are you following a career path?

    Yes – my goal is to be the complete facilities manager. To me, this would include running a successful executive car fleet.

  • Where is your favourite holiday destination?

    I always enjoy my holiday in Monaco, especially during the F1 racing season.
