I have worked in the transport industry initially as a graduate trainee and then as a team leader for a coaching operation. Throughout this I have been surrounded by a male dominated environment and the challenge of encouraging women into a sector that is actually very flexible and empowering for women.

I have now moved up the next level to Operations manager in the private hire sector which is even more male dominated and want to see more women (we currently only have 3 female drivers) join us. My role is to help improve drivers quality and recruitment numbers and I hope to progress to a senior management role here in 5 years. I also hope to grow my car base from 200 – 600 over the next years!
