I joined Aggregate Industries working for the commercial division as a Sales Coordinator. During this time I took a keen interest in the operations of quarrying and applied for the position of Trainee Quarry Manager.
Aggregate Industries has supported me through a Diploma in Quarry Technology at the University of Derby from which I graduated and took on the role as an Assistant Quarry Manager.
I often get asked why I chose to move into an operational role and one of the reasons is the variety of work it involves. This includes health and safety which is important and we have a strong target of zero harm to achieve. I also manage the people on site and look after the production and blasting operations. No two days are the same in quarry management and that is what I enjoy most about the role, the different challenges that each day brings.
