We asked Sian to tell us more about her role:

"When I arrive at the office in the morning I make myself a coffee before working through my emails to get ready for the busy day ahead.

I particularly enjoy acting as a problem solver for any internal supply issues, (nearly always) getting a positive result! My favourite part of my role is building relationships with suppliers from all around the world.

I have a great team around me; it's a pleasure to work with my lovely colleagues."
