Rising through the ranks
CDW Systems has appointed Luke Pemble as office supervisor, just five years after joining the company on the shop floor.
Having joined the company as a temp via an agency, the 33-year-old quickly made a name for himself working on the shop floor before being moved into the office to help with processing orders.
“Since I walked through the door, CDW Systems has been a fantastic place to work, and it’s been brilliant to be able to work my way through the business,” Luke said.
“Over the last five years I’ve been able to get to understand the business, and while the last year and a half has been tough due to the pandemic and record demand, it has been the perfect learning curve.”
Jeremy Phillips, group chairman, said: “While recruiting through an agency can be hit and miss, word of mouth and internal promotions have been our most successful recruitment avenues.
“Attracting more people into our industry is vital, but it’s also just as important to recognise the talent we have and help them move through the business if they want to. When we have got the right people, we don’t want to lose them.”
