Operations Development Officer
Chris P is the Operations Development Officer for CEVA Logistics in Bristol. He's involved with the recruitment and training of the 112 drivers they have on the payroll. He loves the job, but it took him a long time to achieve. He regrets being in a hurry to leave school and get a job, and wishes he had looked at where he wanted to be in twenty years instead of two weeks.
