Nick Standing - Driver

Nick’s working life started in the Merchant Navy employed to carry out the commercial interests of UK registered ships. Nick worked on a cargo ship carrying anything from dairy goods to alcohol as he travelled around the globe.

After a couple of years at sea Nick had a change of direction and began working in the construction industry as a labourer and he was to spend three years working for the same construction company before moving down to Leicester from Beverley in Yorkshire in 1981.

Nick spent some establishing himself in the roles of warehousing and distribution with a UK wide distributor of shoes. During his eight years with this company he very soon gained a promotion to dispatch foreman and then moved on to an external role after acquiring his HGV licence. 

After a further four years in the distribution industry-in 1993 Nick moved to the nationwide distribution company, the Widdowson Group and he was to stay here over 23 years until he joined us here at Warren as our second full time driver.

Nick says it’s difficult to pin-point where he comes from as he had so many house moves during his childhood with his father being in the Forces. The family eventually settled in Beverley, East Yorkshire. Nick now lives in Glenfield in Leicestershire with his wife and enjoys spending time in his garden when he’s not working.
