Highlighting some of the team who continue to make a difference!
Please could you introduce yourself and your job role at Hydro-X?
I started with Hydro-X in December 2017 as Fleet Co-ordinator, and very soon after I began to take on other roles such a facilities, IT and anything adhoc. I then passed fleet on and became Business support co-ordinator learning more of the sales order CRM side of the business and many other aspects of the whole Business Support team functions. In October 2020 I was then given the promotion to Admin manager (title now Business support manager) where I now manage the admin team, facilities, and anything else to support the business needs.
