Darren Slater: North Delivery Supervisor

As the North Delivery Supervisor, Darren has extensive knowledge of our traffic management products.

How long have you been with MVIS?:
I started at MVIS at the start of October 2014 and got promoted to delivery supervisor in December 2015.

Job role:
My day-to-day life at MVIS is based around delivering the signs to the site and maintaining the signs in the yard. I work closely with Tim Hill who is the other delivery and maintenance driver and we travel the country together to ensure the customers are happy with our products.

Recent projects:
I am involved in nearly every project in the north of the UK but recently I have done the M6 CCTV AT J22 and I am now doing the 26 VMSC for the A14 project.

How did you get into the industry:
I was told about the job by a friend and sent my CV into Anne Ashman, the general manager. I came in for a trial day and loved it and I was offered the job a couple of days later.

Most fulfilling part of your role:
The most fulfilling part of my role is delivering the VMS to customers who are happy with the product. I also like knowing the signs my team have put out on the network are keeping the roads safe.

More about me:
I’m a family man who likes spending time with friends and family. I also watch and play football for local teams.
