Congratulations to all the candidates who have achieved passes with TTA over the past month 

Fidelis Seed joins the TTA team

 TTA, a leading North West logistics training company,  is delighted to welcome a new member to our Atherton HQ team, Fidelis Seed, our new Head of Commercial Business Development. Fidelis joined the team in October this year and is settling in well. Fidelis’ previous worked in the voluntary sector with charities. The move from public into private sector work might seem like a leap, but fidelis has found that that the two sectors have a great deal in common, and that experience gained in the private sector, particularly communication and co-operation, has proved useful as she has been getting to grips with her new role.

So how is life at TTA treating Fidelis? Well, the answer seems to be very well:

“It’s been quite a challenge moving sectors, but in a good way. I’m really enjoying the job and thriving under the new challenges. Every member of the team has made me feel welcome and been very helpful as I’ve tried to find my feet. I’m pleased to say I’ve settled in well and have enjoyed every minute of my time here. I know I’ve still lots to learn but feel confident that with the help and support of the team I’ll prosper.”
