In a field traditionally dominated by men, we had the opportunity to speak to Shannon Murray, Operations Manager for CDS England, who’s carved a niche for herself in the industry.

Early Beginnings

Shannon’s passion for the industry was ignited early on, as she “enjoyed the process of learning a new industry, and just how important it was to everyday life”. Despite the male-dominated nature of the field, she was undeterred.

Gender Diversity

The driving and transport industry has seen positive changes in gender diversity, a trend Shannon supports. “There are some fantastic women in the industry …. with a lot more women coming into driving, and working within a variety of roles,” she observes. Her advice to women entering the field? “It’s a great industry to get in to, and with a growing number of opportunities available, the driving sector can take you in direction.”
