I work in Procurement for Manchester Airports Group and my day is always incredibly varied which I thrive from. Being able to find opportunities to change things which lead to improvements keeps me motivated. I can come in with a plan for the day however I rarely expect to stick to it.
Always try to see the bigger picture and join the dots. Often there are a number of drivers in large organisations and these need to be appreciated to understand the approach being taken. The knowledge also aids you to deliver your part effectively.

Keith Miller – retired now, however Keith was my manager early on in my career. I would like to give him a shout out for the support he gave me and the bar he set for how to manage to get the most of out of me and push me to my potential.
I know it’s a cliché but “be proud to have been nominated”. You have stood out for the right reasons and that has been recognised. Remember the person who nominated you, who took time out to do so, so you must have made a positive impression.
