A day in the life of Sara Ferreira – Team Leader

IMG_0043I joined Reynolds in May 2013 as an experienced 7.5 Tonne Multi-Drop Driver and, after a few months, I was assessed to start driving Class 2 vehicles. My performance in this role was recognised and in December 2013 I was promoted to Team Leader, where I am currently responsible for the deployment and management of the 15 drivers in Team 6.

I enjoy getting to know my drivers and supporting them daily by solving any issues they might have. In recognition of my commitment to the role, I have been put on a development plan to gain the experience I need to become a Distribution Shift Manager.

The development plan involves managing the successful running of day-to-day operations. The role is an enjoyable challenge and comes with increased responsibility, which I am learning through work shadowing and acting as a Relief Shift Manager. This has further helped my own personal development in terms of building working relationships, broadening my understanding of how distribution links with other departments within Reynolds and in dealing with a wider variety of operational issues.

Reynolds has actively encouraged and supported my development  and I hope to continue to progress in the coming years.
