What does your role include as Commercial Administrator for Blackwood Engineering?

My role includes a lot of different things, I act as sort of the bridge between the commercial and the finance departments. I track indexation movement, incorporate price changes into our system. I also act as an assistant to the customer account managers here, helping them with their administrative tasks.

What are the biggest challenges the commercial team has faced in the last 12 months?

The biggest challenge the commercial team has faced in the last 12 months is probably the red sea shipping issue that is currently affecting our shipping and deliveries. This issue has led to increased shipping charges, meaning working closely with customers to resolve this.
