Leigh Claridge, Regional Commercial Manager, Sales, South East

Leigh joined us from one of the UKs’ larges banks and was attracted by the chance to continue his personal development and the opportunities available due to the businesses national base and being a part of DCC. Leigh has progressed from a Business Account Manager to a Area Sales Manager and is now Regional Commercial Manager!

“I’m proud to work for Certas Energy. As the UK’s largest independent distributor of fuels and lubricants we continually have the opportunity to lead change. We’ve already done this through our Adjacencies, HSE, Clean Air and Cold Weather Priority initiatives and we’ll continue to be forward thinking and lead our market. 

Another factor in my pride for working at Certas is the people. Both colleagues and customers are great to work with and make each day enjoyable. “

Janine Ireland, Field Sales Exec at Ellesmere Port

Janine joined us at the back end of last year from a competitor and was eager to join us due to our market leading position and opportunities for development open to all colleagues.

“One of the best things about working here is the team work and alliance between the sales and operations department. Our drivers are brilliant in the customer service elements of their role and are conscious to pass over leads.” 

Gemma Ross, Asst Management Accountant at Larbert

Gemma initially joined us on a temporary basis within our Credit Control team but is now with us permanently as a Asst Management Accountant.

“I love learning new skills and being part of a supportive team where I get loads of encouragement to continue studying for my finance qualifications!”

Justin Irvine, Area Operations Manager, Llandysul

Justin joined us after being in the Armed Forces initially as a Depot Supervisor for one depot, which increased to two and progressed from there to be an Area Operations Manager of originally 4 but now 7 depots.

“The best thing about my role is the diversity; no two days are ever the same. There are always opportunities to improve.

The best thing about Certas is that it’s a growing company and I have seen positive changes over the 4 years I have been here.”

Myra McPartlin, Area Business Manager, Retail, Scotland

Myra initially joined DCC on the graduate programme and had a number of placements across the group. Myra decided to remain in Certas in a role within HR and Internal Comms and has since moved into a role within our Retail division.

“The best thing about Certas has been the autonomy I’ve been given to map out the direction I want to take my career. Through my role in Communications I was able gain exposure to every aspect of the business, liaise with a variety of stakeholders and lead key projects in our phased brand launch.

The responsibilities I carried out and the experiences I gained allowed me to effectively transition into the Are Manager role within Retail.
