The work is very different to my previous job which was in a different sector.

Learning a new system is always an achievement and I have also set up new procedures for our new products.

Learning the intricacies of the industry, its nature and terminology.

How is fleet management changing?

Employers are looking at how they can give benefit to employees through their car fleet, in a cost effective way. Greener fleets are also on the agenda.
