Fleet CV

Karen Crocker, fleet and warehouse administrator,


Describe your fleet
We have 161 vehicles in total. Of these, 126 cars and 16 commercial vehicles of various types are owned outright. The rest are contract hire vehicles.

How did you get into fleet?
I have worked my way through the company in various roles and got into fleet administration by chance when my predecessor retired. I have now worked in fleet for more than five years.

Would you recommend a career in fleet?
Yes as it is very varied and a rewarding job, with no two days the same.

What is your favourite aspect of the job?
Everything. I enjoy the variety that the job brings, be it admin, educating drivers or taking delivery of new cars.

And your least favourite aspect?
I haven’t found anything that I dislike yet.

What is your favourite holiday destination?
So far it’s the USA. I visited Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon and the Hoover Dam in one trip, which were all fantastic to see.
