Yesterday, Rebecca took part in a photoshoot to promote the Her-GV campaign which aims to encourage more women to pursue a professional driving career. Today (27 April) Rebecca will join Her-GV on the Road Haulage Association’s stand at the Commercial Vehicle Show. She will be on the stand all day for photo opportunities, meet and greets, and to talk about the campaign.
Rebecca was chosen to support the Her-GV as she’s a woman who works in the male-dominated motoring industry. Her experience as a racing driver and motoring business owner makes her well placed to talk about what it’s like to work in this kind of environment. She’s keen to let women know that working within the motor industry can be a fantastic career move and that they shouldn’t be put off by the fact that it is such a male-dominated sector.
If you visit the stand today, you can find out more about the competition women can enter for the chance to win their HGV training fully paid for. A prize worth £3000.
The Her-GV campaign is supported by the M6 Toll road, which sees plenty of vehicles on a day-to-day basis. Rebecca says: “The M6 toll is a fantastic way to get around and avoid the congestion of the M6. It’s really affordable and convenient, considering you can use contactless. When you think about the time you save – as well as your hourly rate – compared to the toll fee, it definitely makes sense.
“I’m so pleased to be working with the Her-GV campaign to encourage more women into this important industry.”
Promoting the campaign alongside Rebecca is female HGV driver Kara Rouse, who was named Trucker of the Year in 2015.
