In the Driving Seat with Carla Bailey

Welcome to the latest in our new series of interviews called, “In the Driving Seat,’ to help you to get to know our fabulous team better.

This week it’s over to Carla Bailey, our Transport Co-ordinator who joined us last year.

Tell us what your job entails.

My role is essentially to plan our drivers’ routes which means allocating jobs all over the country.

I’ve been with the company for four months now and am currently working from home.

My previous roles have been working within the Transport Industry.

What’s the favourite part of your job?

I love the variety and the pressure. Every day is different. You never know what’s going to have and it might sound odd, but I enjoy the stress of that!

How have you found the various lockdowns?

It’s been fine to be honest. My husband and I have enjoyed the time we’ve had to walk the dogs and have some time together. If I’ve not been too tired after work, I’ve enjoyed cycling too.

What’s the first thing you’ll do after lockdown has lifted?

Just to be able to go back to normality and nip into town or go to the pub again – I’ve forgotten what it’s like.

Have you got any hopes for the future?

I am ambitious and want to move up the ladder. I’d love to be a Transport Supervisor next.

If you won £10,000, what would you spent it on?

Definitely a deposit for a house.
