Vikkie Fitzgerald: Expertly Steering Our Business Through Change

Vikkie Fitzgerald
Compliance Scheme Manager – WEEE

Vikkie is another of our long-standing team members and has been at Clarity since 2011. Joining the team soon after the formation of our waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) recycling partnership network, it quickly became clear that Vikkie had the right skills and attitude to take it forward.

Popular with her customers and colleagues alike, Vikkie is a real team player who takes an active role in our business.

Just two years into her role and the WEEE market faced some significant challenges. The WEEE recast resulted in some substantial changes to the regulations, but with a strong commitment towards building her expertise and knowledge of the sector, Vikkie efficiently steered our business, alongside our members and partners, through these changes. With ongoing and regular communication, Vikkie helped our recycling partners and WEEE compliance scheme members understand the challenges ahead, enabling them to adapt and prepare.

Not long after the WEEE recast, Vikkie took maternity leave and welcomed a baby daughter. Clarity is committed to providing flexible working options to all who work here, and now that Vikkie’s daughter has just turned four, this commitment continues.

Vikkie told us: “Without the full support of the Directors and other members of the Clarity family, I would not have been able to juggle full-time hours and be a mum. Flexible working for all is something I am extremely passionate about, and to find that the company I was already settled in shared the same ethos as me, was brilliant.

“My daughter will be starting school this year, and so my working pattern will continue to change. The fact that no-one seems to realise I do not do the standard (for the UK) Monday-Friday 9-5 is a testament to what can be achieved outside of the traditional view of working life. I can’t thank Clarity enough for being so forward-thinking and supportive of its staff.”
