Before I joined the Chilled family I had been with another driving school for a number of years but the level of work had been consistently dropping for a few months and i felt that there was little opportunity for me to influence the way the company operated.
Having known Alan for a while we met up to discuss his intention to set up an 'Intensive' arm to the Chilled brand. I was struck by his overwhelming enthusiasm and ambition as well as a sense of pride in the company he had set up and the desire to provide the level of service that pupils want. It was something I wanted to be a part of.
I worked with Alan to launch Intensively Chilled in Spring 2014 and joined the team as Team Leader.
Intensively Chilled was an immediate success and my diary has been full ever since. For the first time in my career as a driving instructor I found myself with too much work and within 6 months of launching Intensively Chilled we recruited two more instructors to help meet the demand for courses.
I can honestly say that joining Chilled has been the best career decision I've made. I feel like I'm my own boss but with the full support and guidance of a brilliant MD, Alan Brazewell, and a top team of fellow instructors. Alan is constantly looking for opportunities to raise awareness of the Chilled brand and he keeps the whole team up to speed on how the company is doing by way of full team meetings every two months. I've no regrets at all about joining the Chilled family and I have no doubt that the company will continue to go from strength to strength and I'm looking forward to being part of it.
