A new role for Kieron Pattison

A new role for Kieron Pattison

Congratulations to Kieron Pattison, who was recently promoted to Deputy Despatch Unit Manager from Deputy Amenity Operations Manager, the shift in roles will see him working with the Despatch department, ensuring that stock is checked and entered into the correct bays ready for delivery. Find out what he had to say about his new role below:

1. Any planned celebrations for the new role?

I might take the family out over the weekend and enjoy what is left of the summer with a few cocktails, depending on the weather.


2. How will it differ from your previous deputy amenity operations position?

I will now be contributing towards despatching orders, ensuring orders are all in the correct bays and up to our quality standards. As well as dealing with customers who come and collect


3. You recently passed the rising stars programme, how will this help you in your new position?

The rising star programme will help with managing the team most efficiently and adapting to change, which is definitely required in my new role.


4. What are you looking forward to most in your new role?

Learning and facing new challenges, I am the type of person who thrives off new challenges and learning new skills, as it gives me that sense of achievement when I learn new skills and put them into practice. Also, this new role will give me a wider view of how the company operates from our yard to the main offices


5. What do you think the challenges will be?

I would say understanding how to load wagons (especially mixed loads) in the most safe and secure way, as this is an area where I have little to no experience, but I am looking forward to it


6. Tell us something we don’t know about you:

I enjoy binge-watching true crime documentaries on Netflix late at night when everyone is in bed


7. What do you like to get up to outside of work?

I sometimes go to the gym to keep myself active but mainly spend time with family and watch football.


8. Favourite cuisine?

Has to be Chinese; Singapore chow mein every time


9. What is your favourite season?

I would say spring as it's not too hot or too cold. It is also a good feeling when you start seeing all plants start flowering.


10. Are you a morning or night person?

If I would have to choose, I would say night as I enjoy the peace and quiet when everyone in bed and I can breathe and relax.
