Josh Arbon

Job title: Co-Partner, Age: 30, Industry 3 years, Location: Cambridge

Express final mile apprentice, from farmer to warehouse to yardman to manager.

‘He was humble enough to understand that he needed to and wanted to learn as much as possible’. Josh started at farming college and worked the family farm when an opportunity arrived at a local warehouse. At 24 years old a late starter he knew he could learn on the job and changed his career. Determination and progress through job learning Josh has achieved his goal.

Josh had worked for me as a yardman and overspill delivery driver, he quickly proved himself and was promoted to yard supervisor. Knowledge and competence grew in the roles as Josh stepped into management with a vocational understand of the business and sector that has stood him in the role he holds today, he is a next generation manager routed in express and delivery practice from hands on experience.
