Aashika, IMS Co-Ordinator, Ringway East Midlands, Milton Keynes

How would you describe yourself in three words:

Funny, methodical, consistent.

Tell us about your career. What choices have you made to get where you are today?

I spent about six years temping, which I really enjoyed as I learnt so much about working in an office. I worked for companies of all sizes and industries so it was all valuable experience. I took a permanent role in the NHS in 2009, where I worked with a fantastic team and felt the work I did really helped people.

I then moved to Devon in 2012, where I got a job as a training co-ordinator. The company was fantastic to work for and I really enjoyed the team I was in. I definitely grew in skill and confidence in this role as I was trusted by my managers and colleagues with their clients. I moved back to Milton Keynes in 2015, where I started working for Ringway.

To date, what are your career success stories or high-points and why?

I am a fan of paperless working. In my NHS role, I made two of the processes I worked with paperless and have also done the same with a few processes here at Ringway.

I spent most of 2019 mapping and documenting our local processes. This was a large piece of work and I was very happy to end the year with 40 processes completed and available for my division to use.

Do you have plans…what are your ‘next job’ goals?

I would like to do something more creative and start a side business so I guess my goal is “Owner”!

What career advice would you give to someone just joining the business?

Speak to as many people as you can. Everyone here has so much experience and you can learn so much from people in different roles.

What’s the best thing about working for Eurovia/Ringway?

It’s a great place to learn about highways maintenance and schemes.


Ian, Project Manager, Island Roads

How would you describe yourself in three words:

Practical, conscientious, loyal.

Tell us about your career. What choices have you made to get where you are today?

My working life started as a pot washer in Birmingham. After a year, the restaurant manager asked me to work at a local pub. One evening, I overheard one of the regulars complaining about IT issues in his traffic management business. I offered to look at his computer and instead he offered me a job.

This was the start of my career in construction, doing basic signage plans. As this small business grew, I was asked to manage a new client, a national roadmarking company that was part of Eurovia. From that first job, I built a good working relationship, which led to working with other parts of the group, and I was promoted to Contracts Manager.

In 2013, my client was helping mobilise a new contract on the Isle of Wight and asked if I’d like an interview for Ringway. I was appointed Traffic Management Officer with Island Roads.

After four years, I was promoted to Project Manager, looking after the CIP (Core Investment Period) Carriageways team, and all aspects of resurfacing from full reconstruction to road marking.

To date, what are your career success stories or high-points and why?

The TM Operatives and I built most of the processes and even the depot from the ground up; a lot of the original faces are still there seven years later, which speaks volumes.

Do you have plans…what are your ‘next job’ goals?

I hope to remain in a team leadership role as that’s what I enjoy and where my strengths are, and hopefully be better placed to influence business strategies.

There are lots of opportunities within Eurovia and I hope to facilitate better collaborative working, help build teams and strengthen the business.

What career advice would you give to someone just joining the business?

There’s no such thing as a stupid question. It’s the best way to learn, and most people will take pleasure in explaining something they have an interest in. Win win.

Also, there are a lot of opportunities out there; sometimes you just have to ask.

What’s the best thing about working for Eurovia/Ringway?

It doesn’t matter who you are, how experienced, or what job title, if you have an idea or a concern everyone has a voice, and anyone can make a difference.


Becci, Divisional Financial Controller, Ringway Worcestershire

How would you describe yourself in three words:

Reliable, methodical, Sociable.

Tell us about your career. What choices have you made to get where you are today?

I joined Ringway straight out of sixth form college when I was 18 years old.

I started within the company in Worcestershire as an Accounts Assistant in January 2007. The main duties of this role were purchase ledger, as we didn’t have a central finance team back then. I was in this role for approx. six years and studied my AAT at college in the evenings after work. In 2013, I applied for the Assistant Accountant/Finance Manager job within the team. This role helped me to really progress as a person and get involved with a lot more responsibilities within the finance department, putting together budgets, creating management packs etc, training on new systems, learning payroll, sales ledger, petty cash etc. and lined me up for my current position as DFC.

I was on maternity leave when the opportunity came up to apply for the DFC position which had always been my goal.

To date, what are your career success stories or high-points and why?

For me, it would have to be reaching my goal of DFC within the business. I thought that I was a long way off, and didn’t expect to be in this position quite yet, but having done it now for 12 months I have surprised myself. I just needed that push from my line manager, and when she said that she believed in me I knew I could do it.

I also loved the Hackathon, this was a great experience to be involved with and I would definitely recommend this to anyone who gets the opportunity to go!

Do you have plans…what are your ‘next job’ goals?

For now, I am happy in my position as DFC as I am still learning new things within the role each day, and have only been doing it for 12 months.

What career advice would you give to someone just joining the business?

Be patient, and never give up on your goals! If you have a goal in mind and a job you want to get to within the business, then you will get there when you are ready!

What’s the best thing about working for Eurovia/Ringway?

How supportive they are, they have paid for my college courses and got me where I am today. Also, the people I work with. I have made lots of friends for life within Ringway.


Brian, Divisional Fleet & Plant Manager, Ringway Wiltshire/WU/HESW/SWH

How would you describe yourself in three words:

Diligent, honest, hardworking.

Tell us about your career. What choices have you made to get where you are today?

I spent 22 years in the Armed Forces and 12 in transport – teaching, coaching and instructing. The scope, remit and responsibilities are too varied to list! But the decision to move into the transport sector resulted in my career being more successful than it otherwise might have been.

This phase involved five years with logistics firm XPO, which I left as Transport Manager on good terms; permanent night shift working was impacting on my health and family life. I was responsible for the depot, 150 vehicles and 200 drivers on shift, closely managing 50 drivers through a team of supervisors.

To date, what are your career success stories or high-points and why?

I’ve always enjoy having a clearly defined scope for a project, with a definitive outcome that is measurable. The nature of the project doesn’t matter – I ran several social functions whilst serving, all of which ran with very few issues on the night, despite a myriad of challenges along the way.

On departing XPO, I had mentored a clerk into becoming a supervisor, so my position could be filled by the senior supervisor. I was extremely proud of the team. Effectively training someone to do my job and replace me is the ultimate reward and enables progression. I believe that by looking after my people, at Ringway now as before, they get me a great deal further than I ever could on my own.

Do you have plans…what are your ‘next job’ goals?

An MBA degree will help me better understand the integral workings of the business. Another goal is to take on a fleet or equipment management role in Canada – I relish a challenge and have Canadian background.

What career advice would you give to someone just joining the business?

Do not be afraid to make a decision, just so long as you have the justification to back it up, as the worst action is inaction.

What’s the best thing about working for Eurovia/Ringway?

The people I interact with across the business and the supply chain.
