Liam Pickup – Group Transport/Health & Safety Manager, Vivalda Group

Liam started his career with Vivalda in 2016 when he joined the Hull branch as factory manager. With responsibility for the day to day running of the busy facility, he soon expanded his remit to include wider aspects of manufacturing such as safety and pioneering a recycling scheme at the premises.

“As I had previous experience on both logistics and warehouse management, it was natural for me to build on my role to include transportation and other elements of Health & Safety. It’s demanding and very broad based – but I really enjoy the variety and of the challenge!”

I’ve always loved the more practical side of things, so ensuring machinery is fully operational and planning ahead for maintenance is very rewarding.
