Delivery Driver, Shortridge Dumfries
I’ve worked at Shortridge for almost 14 years, where I started as an operator. I was then given an opportunity to become a delivery driver. Shortridge supported me through my training for my HGV Class 2 licence and they continue to support my ongoing CPC training.
A lot of the staff have been there for a long time. Everyone is polite, helpful and friendly. I work hard and feel like a valued member of the team.
Production Operator, Shortridge Lillyhall
Everyone at Shortridge is so friendly and willing to help you. The management team are approachable and are always keen to find out how you’re getting on. They offer comprehensive health and safety training to ensure everyone knows how to use the machines correctly and safely. The team organises a lot of social activities and I’m looking forward to the next one!
Production Manager, Shortridge Lillyhall
14 years ago I started in the Shortridge washroom and I’ve had various roles since, including on the factory floor, the packing department and then as a supervisor in the washroom.
I enjoy hosting my morning daily team briefings. Everyone is involved and we discuss daily priorities based on customer orders. We also assess our performance from the day before. We’re always looking for areas where we can make improvements.
Safety at work is paramount at Shortridge so I’m regularly hosting risk assessment and safety training for the team. The aim is to empower staff so that everyone understands the important role they play in our process.
