Since joining Samuel Grant Packaging in 2013 as a logistics apprentice, Calum Seddon has shown great enthusiasm and willingness to learn, which has led to multiple new roles and responsibilities within the business. Soon after completing his NVQ in warehouse and logistics, Calum made the step up to Assistant Buyer.
After a year of learning the ropes in procurement, he naturally progressed into position of Buyer before finally taking up his current role as a Samson Nano Specialist. This was always something which Calum could see himself doing, and supported and guided by Managing Director, Julia, he hasn’t looked back since.
When asked to describe his current role and his favourite parts of the job, Calum said:
“I deal with all things Samson Nano, including placing and installing the machines. Having been in this role for just over a year, I love getting out and about and having a change of scenery every day. My favourite aspect of the job is being able to see the benefits on the customers’ end, rather than just the initial purchasing process. I always thought of Nano as a natural progression through the company and when the job came up, I just went for it!”
The launch of our very own Samson Nano Slingshot has also played a big part in Calum’s development, with him being the very first person to be fully trained on the new machine, something which he sees as his biggest achievement to date.
Going forward, Calum sees Samuel Grant in prime position to continue our long-standing success, with more focus being put on sustainability and closing the loop on recycling. We couldn’t finish the conversation without a mention to Julia Allen and Andrew Grant, both of whom Calum said are key drivers behind his success and thanks them for all their help along the way.
