We’re delighted to announce we’ve appointed Rachael Taylor to the role of PDS Office Manager. Rachael joined us at the start of 2015 as an Apprentice Projects Administrator. In just two years she has excelled in her role and is ready to take on a new challenge - we’re confident she’ll do a great job!
Since joining PDS, Rachael has worked alongside our Managing Director, Iain Bland, to prepare tender presentations and quotes. She has gradually taken on more responsibilities including processing of jobs, problem solving, ordering materials and assisting project managers.
Iain comments: “Rachael has done a fantastic job since joining the team, and we’re all very proud with the progress she has made. To go from being an apprentice to office manager in just two years is a great achievement, especially considering she didn’t know much about the industry before she joined us.”
Racheal comments: “Over the past two years I’ve been given the opportunity to grow and develop both in a work capacity and on a personal level, working within a team that has always encouraged my progress.
“I’m looking forward to progressing in my role and passing on knowledge to new members of staff. I also hope to develop new ideas and processes to help with administration throughout the business.
“At PDS no two days are ever the same, which makes the job really enjoyable. Every day I learn something I new and work as part of a team who are always on hand to help, which has helped me to develop my knowledge and skills so quickly.”
Iain concludes: “We’re always on the lookout for young, local talent and regularly take on apprentices. Rachael is a shining example of what can be achieved by learning on-the-job, I’m looking forward to seeing her excel in her new role.”
