What Our People Say

The worldwide success of Alexander Dennis is built on the passion, expertise and commitment of its people, from the executive team to everyone working on the shop floor. Here is what some of them say about working for Alexander Dennis.

Lindsey Entwistle

Procurement Engineer

“The Procurement Engineer role at ADL is a unique opportunity to take my technical experience and apply it to a commercial function, balancing cost with our response to relevant issues, such as our move to electric vehicles and more recently our coronavirus response.

“I find my professional voice is valued at ADL. Recently, I played a key role in our COVID-19 Strategic Response Team, working with suppliers to ensure everyone using our vehicles is well protected.”

Vishal Banakar

Engineering Projects Co-ordinator

“I work closely across all relevant departments and product lines to ensure projects and processes are fully engineered and aligned.”

Rhys Holder

Apprentice Vehicle Builder

“At ADL there is a variety of jobs to do and as an apprentice you have an opportunity to move everywhere so you know how to do everything.”

Katarzyna Milkiewicz-Siewiorek

Group Treasury Manager

"I am very pleased I have been able to be make a difference in the changes the organisation has undergone since I joined it in the Aftermarket Finance team over five years ago. We have supported ADL's growth in the UK and globally, as well as exploring our future prospects and building on our learning culture at the same time. During my time at ADL so far, I have met a lot of very passionate individuals working in all departments through Engineering, IT, Finance and Operations.

"For the last couple of years before becoming Group Treasury Manager, I was part of the Financial Shared Service Centre, where my team and I continued to support the business globally by automating transactions, providing our colleagues in all divisions with relevant reporting and advice, resolving queries between ADL and our suppliers and customers, allowing people to move from one site to another.

"Working for ADL is a fascinating journey for all those who are keen to learn and develop, and who are prepared to take on challenges."

Grant Wilson

Lead Engineer

"When I started with ADL over twelve years ago I had no idea that my journey as an apprentice vehicle builder would lead me to university to complete my Engineering honours degree. When I was first asked if I would like to go to university I was very apprehensive. I didn’t think at the age of 27 I would be going back to learning, assessments, and exams. Juggling work, home life with two kids and studying was extremely difficult at times, especially going into my last year, where COVID hit and I had to complete the majority of my project at home. I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for the help and support from my wife as well as all my colleagues at ADL, especially my manager and mentor John Reid.

"ADL has given me the opportunity and support to take out day release from my job to attend university, and reinforcing mentally that I was capable of achieving such a high standard."

Calum Mair

Strategy Graduate

"The graduate scheme gives a truly cross-functional experience and the opportunity to work on the projects that deliver real business impact."
