Lucy believes that the skills she gained at school and university have proven themselves to be incredibly transferable, setting her up perfectly for a career in the logistics industry.
Without the need to follow a specific educational route, or have decades of experience under her belt to make a difference, she’s excited about the skills she can continue to develop as her career within logistics progresses.
“The beauty of our industry is that it is open to all. The industry needs diverse problem solvers, and a workforce that can adapt and overcome challenges.”
Within her role as Customer Fulfilment Centre Manager for Tesco, Lucy thrives on the fact that no two days look the same. The fast-paced environment allows her to adapt to new challenges as she goes, constantly adding new strings to her bow.
The pace with which she’s been encouraged and supported to progress to her current role after just three short years with Tesco brings Lucy a lot of pride and satisfaction:
“As a young female within logistics, I’m running a customer fulfilment centre that services over 3,000 customers everyday and have the responsibility to ensure my 1,100 colleagues get home safely everyday.”
Lucy is keen to stress that her passion for her work and her drive to progress have been key to her progression: “There is huge opportunity for career growth within logistics.”
