Careers: Fleet CV

Graham Short, fleet manager, Indesit

How many vehicles are on your fleet?
We have 345 cars, 850 light commercials and 200 large goods vehicles. Our cars user chooser policy includes Ford, GM and Audi.

How long have you worked in fleet?
My whole working life has been motor trade and transport. A mechanic on leaving school and a spell in the haulage industry have been good grounding for my nine years in fleet.

What are you working on at the minute?
I’m currently updating my car policy and driver handbook for 2008.

Would you recommend fleet as a career?
Yes. It is not just about cars and it is not for the faint-hearted but is potentially very rewarding. 

What would make your job easier?
If lease companies were more realistic at “end of contract” and if drivers would actually read their handbook. 

How do you relax?
I try to watch a football match, play some golf and cycle. I’m also trying to learn to play the guitar.
