Connect Group recently launched a brand new careers website, a portal allowing candidates and potential applicants to get a feel for life within the Connect family of brands. Featured in the success stories were the words of some of our valued employees who have been with us many years.
The new portal is key in helping showcase the interesting work we do across the Connect Group, and has also been a great way to capture feedback from some of the employees that have been with us many years.
Sam Deane, General Manager, and Jason Fogarty, a collection and delivery driver gave their thoughts and experiences of working with Tuffnells.
"I first joined Tuffnells as a school leaver. It gave me a fantastic insight into the parcel industry, which turned out to be the foundation for a successful career. Little did I know that 28 years later I would be back again! I am so glad I did. I really enjoy my role and the influence I have to achieve the results we need. We're a fast-paced business that's continuously evolving, and we do need to step up the pace at times. But, I love a challenge! What I enjoy most is creating a working environment that's clean, tidy and great to work in - but at the same time professional. I also strive to make a positive difference to people's lives, not only at work but also at home. After all, most people just want to feel valued." - Sam Deane
"While I knew very little about Tuffnells before I applied, I did have a couple of friends who worked for the company and they had very good things to say about it. So, when the chance came to apply, I jumped at it. The work can be challenging and we always have deadlines to meet. But there is a real team spirit here and we all work together, help each other out and get the job done. In my short time here, I feel I have really grown as an individual, I am progressing well within the business and I know that with the right passion and drive there will be even more opportunities in the future." - Jason Fogarty.
