What area of Pelican do you work in?
I am one of the procurement managers – we’re the front end that ensures clients’ needs are met and objectives are delivered, as promised.
What were your first impressions of the team and company culture?
My first impressions were that the company had a much more healthy gender balance – I came from foodservice consultancy where there was a much more testosterone-driven set-up.
Being at Pelican now for over five years what is your favourite part about working here?
What has struck me is the spirit of fairness, openness, honesty and a calmer environment.
What does a typical day working here look like for you?
I work from home in the Midlands, with most of my days are spent out on the road seeing clients.
What do you like most about your job?
There’s really good support in place and flexible working.
What have you been most impressed with so far?
I really like the fact that the company believes in people’s skillsets – and I am trusted to deliver the service on behalf of the company.
What is your biggest achievement to date in your professional life?
I was really fortunate to get the role as general manager of the international division at my last company – it was great experience and it gave me the opportunity to travel in Europe, North Africa and the Caribbean.
How would you sum-up Pelican?
There are a lot of passionate people with professional knowledge at Pelican. A variety of specialisms and industry knowledge that we combine well, using teamwork.
What is your favourite meal?
I like to keep it simple – there’s nothing better than enjoying a crab or lobster that I’ve caught scuba diving, with salad and fresh bread.
