Keyline employee celebrated for completing Warehouse to Wheels programme​

Chris Rekowski, Sales Negotiator at Keyline’s Swindon branch, has qualified as an HGV driver thanks to the company’s ‘Warehouse to Wheels’ programme.

Having joined Keyline in September 2017, Rekowski has received his HGV licence and now, in addition to his current role, he will be acting as a backup driver.

The programme is open to all Keyline branch staff and takes four to six months to complete. Those on the course receive introductory training on the roles and responsibilities of drivers, as well as a tailored programme of driving tuition before taking their practical test.

At the end, a category C licence is received meaning the driver can take charge of vehicles weighing over 3.5 tonnes.

Warehouse to Wheels allows Keyline to utilise existing loyal members of staff, instead of relying on agency drivers, and Rekowski was recently presented with his licence by Jason Southern, Keyline Swindon Branch Manager and Paul Tkocz, Assistant Branch manager.

Southern commented: Chris Rekowski HGV licence“The Warehouse to Wheels programme highlights Keyline’s commitment to staff development and ensures we have quality drivers who exceed our customers’ expectations. Since joining Keyline, Chris has become an invaluable member of the branch team and has shown great dedication in ensuring our customers receive the best service possible. Congratulations to him for gaining his HGV licence.”
