We’re proud of our success as a company, and even more so of the thousands of drivers we’ve helped over the years to earn more, improve their ratings, and enjoy their work. When reflecting on our achievements, we mostly use the majestic plural, just like every other company.  Clearly, we do it for simplicity’s sake, but we also take time to remind ourself that it’s the individual effort of each colleague that makes Splend more than a car supplier.

After all, it’s our team members who help you take control of your career with their dedicated support, so it’s time you got to know them.

Keep an eye on our blog, as each month we’ll be introducing some friendly faces: in October we had a cuppa with Craig, our very own Fleet Admin.

Craig Westley

Craig Westley - Splend Fleet AdministratorHow long have you been with Splend, Craig?
Since the end of February, so around 9 months.

What’s your background?
Previously I worked for Addison Lee at their main hub in Hayes. I started off as a Car Jockey and within a month I moved on to working in their Vehicle Inspections team. I then worked for the Fleet Logistics team and was involved with the MoT and licencing of vehicles. I then moved on to become Team Leader in the Vehicle Inspections Office where I was in charge of a team of 5. Before Addison Lee I was a postman.

What do you enjoy about working at Splend?
I have enjoyed being a part of a growing company that is striving to become the market leader in this space. Since the day I started everyone has been so nice and welcoming. The environment here creates a great place to work and the team is focused on doing everything possible to help our members succeed.

Where might we find you when you are not at work?
I am either out socialising or watching Arsenal play. I thoroughly enjoy going to watch games live at the Emirates Stadium.

What’s your favourite movie?
Any of the Avengers movies.

What is your favourite place in the world?
My hometown, London! There is so much that you can do and see. Another one of my favourite places I have visited would have to be Mexico.
