Unexpectedly propelled into management after the resignation of his boss, Andrew Robins found himself suddenly responsible for seven engineers and facing the need to recruit, having had no prior managerial experience whatsoever.
If you’d asked him then where he saw himself in five years’ time, his answer probably wouldn’t have been as Head of Engineering at Twiflex, having improved their operations and implemented a whole new performance management system – but that’s precisely what his CV looks like now.
As a Chartered Manager, he’s safe in the knowledge that his skills have been benchmarked against a professional standard, and he has all the tools and resources he needs to continue improving them.
