What does a Engineering Storeman do?
An Engineering Storeman will look after the day to day running of all the items held in engineering as spare parts, which will include checking their levels ordering new parts as they are used etc. I will also deal with 5-10 different new suppliers on a daily basis which keeps the job very interesting.
After you qualified, did it take long to find a job?
I gained my qualifications while I was in the Royal Navy and they helped me find a job when I left so it was I little different for me, but there are lots of ways to look for jobs out there and the tasty careers website is a great start.
How did you end up in this job?
I kind of fell upon it really, while suppling Allied Bakeries with spare parts I seen the role come up and applied straight away because I knew from experience that the industry pays really well.
What was your starting salary?
Has your salary changed since then – if not do you see salary progression?
Yes it has gone up yearly as Allied Bakeries offers a chance at a yearly pay rise based on performance.
