One of our core values is based on building trust.
Trust between colleagues, suppliers and customers alike. We believe that one of the key elements of building trust is in developing relationships, particularly being able to put a face to a name.
So in the coming weeks and months, we will feature members of the CDL team. These articles will not only demonstrate who we are as an employer, but will give you an insight into how we work as a business.
We hope you will enjoy these short, but sweet, articles about our great team.
Ste Lee – Assistant Operations Manager
Ste is our Assistant Operations Manager and has been with the company for 9 years. He started in the eBay department packing up outbound kit and has worked his way from department to department.
In his time, he has worked on PCs, General Assets and Servers, he became a team leader and most recently promoted to Assistant Ops Manager. So, a real climb of the ladder.
He’s seen amazing change within the organisation, like many others the most notable change has been the move in premises, but in general Ste sums it up with just one word. Growth!
He has witnessed the change in technology, change in management, increased numbers of staff, vans, kit coming through the door, it has just been a massive period of incredible growth and he is really happy to have been a part of it.
Ste says; “The culture here at CDL is first class, we are a tight knit bunch with a family feel, we have recently started doing staff appraisals so we are feeling like we can have our say.”
Ste’s typical day starts around 8am when he checks what has been processed and what is available to sell either to existing customers awaiting orders or through eBay. He will get the stock advertised online or liaise with customers to make arrangements. He looks after invoicing and packages up for collection or delivery.
“The main challenge with my day is not knowing what I’m coming into, but I like it like that, no two days are the same.”
Ste goes home at the end of the day to his wife, three children and enjoys going walking with their three dogs.
