Team Focus: Becca Smith, Purchasing and Stock Control

Daniels - Becca Smith Feature

This is part of a series of posts where we introduce each member of the Daniels Healthcare team, from across the organisation. We have a compliment of approximately 90+ staff members who all live and breathe the ethos of Daniels and you’ll get to meet many of them in this series.

Becca Smith has been with Daniels for more than 14 years. She began her career here after leaving school at 17 and has held various positions within the company during this time.

She is currently in charge of purchasing the raw materials and components needed to produce our products, liaising with suppliers in Holland, Australia and the UK.

This is a crucial role. She uses historical data and evidence-based predictions of future needs to ensure we have the right amount of plastic granules to manufacture Daniels’ goods.

Because of her experience, Becca is often called upon to answer queries about warehousing (she was once based within the warehouse so picked up a lot of knowledge about logistics) and the production process.

She has also recently been involved with the implementation of a new software system, which manages purchase orders and delivery notes.

Becca says the reason she’s remained at Daniels for so many years is because of the people: “It’s like a big family here, everyone gets on so well which makes it a great place to work every day. I also enjoy the hustle and bustle of the office, every day is different and I really enjoy the problem-solving side of my role, coming up with solutions to overcome any challenges.

“If I had to pick a favourite Daniels product, I would have to say SHARPSGUARD theatre⁺. I was involved in this project from the beginning and it’s satisfying to see it come to fruition and grow”.

Becca Smith cakes

In her spare time, Becca heads to the gym and is busy most weekends with her four nephews. She says her friends would describe her as honest (with a great sense of humour!), reliable and creative. The latter is proven with Becca’s love of baking cakes and sugar craft which she says she finds very relaxing. She meets with a group of likeminded bakers once a month to share ideas and tips.
