I returned to the workplace 5 years ago as accounts assistant. In the last number of years Pearson Milking Technology has guided and encouraged me at my own pace, and now I have arrived at a point where I know that my full potential can be seen. I feel respected & valued. I have a voice and I am confident to express my opinion knowing that what I have to say or offer is important and will be considered. Each day brings new challenges and I get great satisfaction from knowing that I have made a contribution to an exciting, fast growing company.

The company is growing on a daily basis and along with that comes new opportunities for employees to explore, learn and develop. All employees are given the chance to acquire new skills by way of in-house training, apprenticeships, or further education including 3rd level college. Management are committed to the wellbeing of all staff members and are very aware of life’s challenges such that we have flexibility to take time off to attend to family matters at short notice. Pearson Milking Technology is a lovely place to work where all staff interacts and work really well with one another. During summer months we all come together at Pearson HQ for BBQ’S and every Christmas we get together for a Christmas party.

The company have encouraged me to return to further education and I am currently studying for an ACCA qualification. The cost of my studies is being kindly financed by Pearson Milking Technology.

I really enjoy working in and being part of the Pearson team. There is a great variety of work and people. Team building and creating positive attitudes is part of the Pearson ethos. I always feel valued in all tasks that are completed and have been asked of and there is always room for development as both an employee and person. Our production facility is very safe with modern and comfortable work spaces. Working hours never change, there is no shift work and the location is very accessible for me. There is a canteen for lunch, lockers provided for personal belongings and there is on site parking. Good communication between management and employees with regular feedback on tasks so as to constantly be improving where necessary. I was provided with all the necessary training for any of the work I am involved in.

My Journey
I started working in goods in/good out. From here I proceeded to a warehouse picker. During this time I got a lot of insight into the parts and I was educated on what they were used for and where. After this I became team leader/ supervisor where I then started looking at how we could change some aspects for the better and where we could make improvements within the stores. Lean methodology is a big part of the workplace. We started having daily meetings within the team to give clear views on jobs that were on the radar for the week and just to check in with everyone so that there was no confusion. After this I was given more training as I developed in the company. From supervisor I then became stores manager where I am now looking after logistics, shipping of pick lists for site, working within deadlines and dealing with queries from our installation team and multiple distributors across the globe.
