Buyer, UK

“Rotork has always given people the opportunity to learn new skills and to progress in any given situation."

I heard about an Assembler/Fitter job from a friend who already worked at Rotork so applied for it and joined in 1999. Since then I have been promoted to Team Leader and during my time in this role I have managed all production areas on the shop floor.

Approximately 10 years ago I was promoted to Senior Production Team Leader which gave me extra responsibilities including recruiting new people, mentoring craft apprentices as well as running production areas. My production experience enabled me to support our suppliers, often working off site to help them introduce leaner manufacturing processes to aid the supply chain.

In 2019 I joined the purchasing team as a Buyer and am currently pursuing a new career in this field.
