We may only be in the second month of the year, but the FWM family is continuing to grow! Meet our newest recruits - Claire, Yasmeen and Philippa!
Claire Knight - Supply Chain Support
Claire joined us in January, bringing with her 18 years experience in supply chain and shipping, managing service providers, establishing new routes and obtaining the best costs - all skills that are vital in her role with us!
Claire is excited to join the team to support the supply chain, as well as expanding her skill set even further.
In her spare time, Claire enjoys taking on new challenges, having previously taken on the Three Peaks Challenge (raising over £4,500 for charity in the process!) and running the Cardiff Half Marathon last year.
Yasmeen Alsheekhhamid - Accounts Assistant
Yasmeen has joined our busy finance team.
After studying Accounting at Cardiff Metropolitan University, Yasmeen graduated in 2017.
Straight after university, she went to work as an Administrative Assistant, which was her first ‘proper job’. Yasmeen has always thought of herself as a quiet person but said “I’ve gained so much confidence over time working as an Administrator that I finally decided to take the first step into the world of accounting...which lead me to Forward Waste! The people here are so kind and friendly, I’ve learnt so much from them already and I look forward to learning more and growing into my role”.
In her spare time, Yasmeen enjoys many hobbies, including practicing martial arts (Kendo), learning to play the electric guitar and enjoying live music.
Philippa Phelps - Van Sales Executive
Looking for spill and absorbent materials? Philippa is your woman! Joining us at the end of January, Philippa will be hitting the road focusing on promoting our spill kit ranges.
Bringing with her a huge 25 years worth of experience in the waste management industry, Philippa has a wealth of knowledge that can only benefit our team.
In her spare time, Philippa enjoys spending time with friends and family and going for walks with her dogs.
We are delighted to have Claire, Yasmeen and Philippa with us at FWM and wish them every success for their careers with us.
