Natalie joined from nearby Central Fasteners, based just around the corner from Alpha on Hixon Airfield industrial estate where she had worked for 12 months in a primarily purchasing which also incorporated some telesales responsibilities.
Natalie’s new role will see her take responsibility for order processing, invoice queries, purchasing and order chasing. With business at Alpha now back to normal levels, the purchasing department is as busy as ever with manufacturing materials and stock in constant high demand to fulfill new orders. Natalie will be an important link between production and purchasing, expediting orders and ensuring a smooth purchasing function.
On her experience of Alpha in her first few weeks, Natalie said:
“I knew about Alpha and Bri-Stor Systems as they’re in Hixon, near my old workplace and we had supplied them in the past. The biggest difference here is that it’s quite a lot bigger than my last place. Manufacturing is also a new industry for me so there’s lots to learn, it’s quite exciting. The whole team here has been really friendly and helpful, making it easy to settle in and learn my role.”
Outside of work Natalie is active, attending the gym regularly to keep fit and is a keen walker. While at home she enjoys relaxing of an evening with a book. A bubbly and sociable person, Natalie has quickly settled into the Alpha team is already proving to be an important member of the purchasing team.
