What do you do at ANC?
I am a Ute Owner Driver in WA, delivering predominately for Bunnings Warehouse. I have been working with ANC since 2016.
Transport career experience?
Prior to becoming a Delivery Professional, my background was quite diverse. After moving to Australia from New Zealand, I was a butcher by trade in the large supermarket chains. I worked my way up to Meat Manager in country WA. We decided to move to Perth when our children were ready to start school, where I took on store management roles. From here I progressed into the corporate offices with a role liaising between the company and suppliers. After reassessing my direction I changed industries and worked for Prime Commercial Laundry supplying to hospitals. After eighteen months, I decided to pursue my interest in becoming an Owner Driver. As they say, things are meant to be. My wife worked next door to ANC and asked about the delivery professional roles available, and here I am today.
Favourite part of your job?
Moving over from the corporate world, I really appreciate being out and about driving in the WA sunshine. My favourite part of the job would have to be delivering to the customer. I am lucky enough to meet a lot of different people each day, everyone has a story to tell, it keeps the days interesting and diverse.
What do you like to do when you’re not working?
I love to spend my time with the family and enjoy a good BBQ with friends. Music is a passion of mine, I enjoy unwinding and listening to old vinyl records on the turntable. Travelling is another way I like to spend my free time now that the children are older, we try and make time to do this as often as possible.
What do you think delivering extraordinary experiences mean?
Being a delivery driver means you are the last drop in the chain. I believe achieving an excellent experience involves always being professional, helpful, reliable and pleasant. As a delivery professional, we have an opportunity to create the all-important lasting impression, not only for ANC but also for our clients.
