What impact has the business becoming a Future50 Member for 2018 had on you?

In my role of Assistant Operations Manager, I work closely with the manufacturers, courier and our fitting team to co-ordinate delivery, installation and other
after-order elements as well as editing the website, including updating our web
listings and managing orders.

Being a part of a company that has the Future 50 title gives me pride in working in the business I do and pride in my colleagues and gives me great confidence being a part of a
rapidly growing team and industry.

I am currently focusing on my new role in the business and developing my skills in it which all will aid in Cabins Unlimited growing as a business and I hope to develop my
skills in my role and move into a position in the future, managing one of our
show sites when we expand further by opening other show sites elsewhere in the
UK.
