International Women's Day

As it’s International Women’s Day this week, we’re celebrating all the amazing women who are part of the Eden team.

Today we speak to Melissa Miller, one of our lovely receptionists:

Name: Melissa Miller

Position: Receptionist

Located at: Alfreton Road, Derby

How long have you worked at Eden Tyres & Servicing?

MM: I will have worked for ETS for 3 years in May.

Why did you choose to work for ETS?

MM: I chose to work for ETS because I decided to do a complete career change from being a beautician. I fancied a challenge with working in a different environment that I had an interest in.

What do you enjoy the most about your role?

MM: The best thing about my job role is all of the lovely customers I have, all the regulars and new! I love chatting and just in general serving and helping people.

What is a career highlight of yours so far?

MM: The highlight of my career at ETS was when I went to Hinckley branch to do a ladies night on showing women the basics about vehicles. For example how to put your spare wheel on and what we do behind the scenes. We also showed the lovely ladies what we do when we change a tyre and what we do when we service a vehicle!

Do you think that the Automotive industry is something that more women should get involved in?

MM: Definitely!! I feel that having a female in this environment is very welcoming to other women that can be nervous coming into such an environment that is so male orientated. Also having a female in a male environment may seem scary but it really isn’t, the boys get you coffee’s and if you’re lucky- they actually listen to you!!
