Fleet CV

Ashely Miles, fleet administrator, H Ponsford.

Describe your fleet
We have 15 vans, a mix of Mercedes-Benz and Volkswagen models, and 15 user-chooser cars, as well as a handful of site vehicles.

How did you get into fleet?
I was always aware of the company – it is a prestigious local firm – and when I applied for and got the role of accountant, the fleet role came with it.

What is your favourite aspect of the job?
I like dealing with our drivers on a daily basis – reminding them of checks and so on. It’s the more human aspect of the role.

And your least favourite?
Dealing with fines – especially concerning our van drivers when it comes to checking who was driving. Not to mention keeping fuel costs down.

Would you recommend a career in fleet?
Yes – it gives you plenty of different issues to think about and definitely keeps you occupied.

How do you relax at weekends?
I have three children who keep me busy – we like cycling together – and I’m a big Sheffield United fan.
