Alfie Barratt

Part-Time Warehouse Supervisor

Alfie joined the company in July 2017 and worked alongside warehouse staff developing his skills and knowledge in warehousing.  Within six months the company offered Alfie an NVQ apprenticeship to help him progress.  Alfie accepted the apprenticeship, he completed along with forklift training, allowing him a better understanding of the company and to progress within his warehousing role.

The company was sad to see Alfie leave the company in January 2019 to pursue his own goals and gain experience in a non-warehousing role.  However, in January 2020; Alfie returned to the company as a part-time Warehouse Operative.  Since his return, he has thrown himself into the challenges of a busy warehouse and we have decided to make Alfie a part-time warehouse supervisor.
