The company is full of opportunities to progress and create a career in an industry that is constantly growing along with demand.
The investment in good fleet and maintenance really puts drivers’ minds at ease. It’s a great environment to work in and there’s so many nice people who work across the company.
The company really invests in identifying and developing talent, and giving people the opportunity to move into other roles, for example, warehouse staff moving into customer services roles or having the chance to train as drivers.
There is a positive culture across the business. We are all treated as people and not as a number. I like the opportunity to be able to choose the shift pattern I want which allows me to be a wife, mother and a driver.
It’s a very supportive stress-free working environment and if any of us have any issues or challenges they get sorted straightaway. It’s also good to be able to go home at night not having to worry about work.
Every day there is something new to learn and this makes me want to push myself and learn more and more. I have been given the opportunity to prove myself and to show myself that I can do things that I thought I couldn’t do.
I can honestly say that I love my job and there is never a Monday morning when I wake up and dread going to work. I must really enjoy my job as I haven’t had a day off sick for 16½ years!
After completing my GCSEs, I entered the sixth form to start A-levels, but it just wasn’t for me so I returned to Boughey to work in the Packing Hall full-time in January 1989 and I’ve been here ever since!
Boughey feels like a family-run business. Driving with the company is a very secure job – working within the food industry, the company is always busy and there is a continuous and steady flow of work.
I joined the company straight after school at the age of 16 and I’m still here 15 years later! I left school in May 2005 and started work in August the same year on an agency contract handballing in the warehouse.
