The anniversary celebrations saw Jenny Buck, Head of HR & Support Services for CAF Rolling Stock UK and Iain Taylor, Head of HR & Support Services for CAF Rail Services UK visiting Ford & Stanley’s Head Office on Pride Park, Derby.
Jenny and Iain were welcomed by a range of consultants who have supported CAF with placements over the two years as well as the Key Account Director and Managers.
CAF and Ford & Stanley reflected on the journey so far including the range of activities, projects and initiatives put in place and the success the partnership has seen over the two year period.
Both CAF and Ford & Stanley are looking forward to developing the already strong partnership even further, with plans already forming to expand initiatives and support in more areas.
Jenny Buck said: “It was a very enjoyable day – it was great to meet more of the wider Ford & Stanley team that support CAF and we were amazed at how quickly the time has gone.
