Careers: Fleet CV

Gina Heeley, fleet manager, Wolters Kluwer UK

Describe your fleet.

We currently have 126 cars across all badges and some commercial vehicles.

Would you recommend a career in fleet?

Yes, I would. My current role has evolved over the past six years. I was originally a facilities administrator and then when the fleet management was consolidated I assisted the fleet manager. Since 2005 my role has been to manage the whole of our UK fleet.

How does working in fleet differ from your previous job?

It’s far more involved than any previous role. With duty of care you have to be so careful and make sure everything is recorded.

What would make your job easier?

A single-badge vehicle policy – but then I don’t think I would be very popular with our drivers.

What do you like to do to relax?

I love entertaining – spending the day in the kitchen is relaxing to me. And I always have a good book on the go.

What item could you not live without?

I would have to say my car.
