Charlotte Mitchell has been promoted to the role of supply chain consultant covering the East Midlands, having successfully completed CAST UK's Graduate Training Academy.

Having joined the company in November 2013, Charlotte previously worked in a purchasing role at a US software company after graduating with a business studies degree from Manchester University.

Commenting on her promotion, Charlotte said: “I was keen to work in a results-oriented environment and was really attracted by Cast UK’s Graduate Training Academy. It allowed me to really get a handle on all aspects of the business, with dedicated one-to-one support from a mentor.”

Charlotte, who grew up in Singapore and moved to Manchester to study, feels that the graduate market is still tough though there are opportunities out there for those with ambition, initiative and drive.

Wayne Brophy, managing director of Cast UK, added: “We’re thrilled to announce Charlotte’s promotion. As someone with a strong work ethic and a positive approach to career development, she is a valuable asset to our team and will support our company’s expansion within the East Midlands.”
