Pass with flying colours

Towards the end of last year I began attending a NEBOSH National General Certificate course at SETA in Stockport. Here at Protective Packaging Ltd we take Health & Safety extremely seriously and I wanted to pass this course so that I could contribute to the well established Health & Safety culture that has been developed here.

After many weeks of horrendous cramp from writing copious amounts of notes, the big day arrived. Exam Day !! All candidates exhibited a great degree of anxiety and apprehension on the morning of the exam, aided no doubt, by a severe lack of order generic ambien online for sleep and a huge excess of caffeine, myself being no exception to this. The exam was challenging as expected and there was a great deal of pen chewing and exasperated sighing throughout.

After a painful wait of nearly eight weeks my results arrived in a soggy envelope on a wet day at the end of June 2012 (British Summer is great, eh??). I am pleased and somewhat relieved to say that I achieved a pass with credit!! I am now looking forward to applying my newly acquired knowledge within Protective Packaging Ltd.

“Good Timin”

From the song…”Who in the world would ever know what Columbus could do/
If Queen Isabella hadn’t hocked her jewels in 1492 – but she had timin’”
Thinking about one of the greatest explorers of all time, it is a pity that Protective Packaging Ltd was not around then. Why? – because the mortal remains of Christopher – held aloft in a coffin supported by four marble courtiers in Seville Cathedral – now weighs only six ounces.
With all the international disputes and family arguments about where his remains and coffin should finally rest – it is thought he travelled more after he had died that when he was alive!
So – if you have any treasures to preserve or transport, or any memorabilia to cherish, or family records to keep safe, contact Protective Packaging – now – and our experts in Customer Support will advise and recommend the most suitable of our products , whether foilbag, foil pouch, bubble wrap, case lining or cushioning – not forgetting the right amounts of desiccant or activated clay – to keep those special memories intact.
Timing is important – look after something precious today – you can store up treasures for tomorrow!

Exceeding customer expectations

In my role as Customer Support Manager, I understand the importance of keeping my team motivated so that they can deliver positive customer interactions and exceed customers expectations. Protective Packaging Ltd offer ongoing product and system training internally for their staff, they are also continually looking at appropriate external training courses that will help to develop their staff to their full potential.

I am lucky to have a very hardworking and fun team, and at the very busy and stressful times, when a little extra motivation is required, they can always be bribed with a boozy team night out.

Opportunities to learn more

I have been at Protective Packaging for 7 months now. When I first started everything was completely new to me and I only knew the basics of the company.
Protective Packaging have given me all kinds of opportunities to learn more. I have received all types of training in most areas of the company and also attended an Export Freight Course to give me a better understanding. My role has now developed to include Customer Support as well as Purchasing role.

This has helped me gain my qualification in Business Administration level 2 and hopefully move on to my Level 3.
