What are the Best and Worst things about your job?
- Having real accountability for my actions and the decisions that I take. Yes it can be a bit daunting initially, but knowing that there are people to support and guide me makes it easier!
- The variety of my work.
- The people. I get to work with colleagues from across the whole of the business in different functions and also external parties such as creative designers.
- Being trusted and feeling valued. I'm trusted to make decisions, feel comfortable to make mistakes and feel valued by my team and the company.
- Being able to get involved in a variety of projects and events across the company that are outside of my day-to-day role - this includes charity events, mentoring, and community projects.
- Being able to travel across the country to different sites, to learn about all areas of our supply chain (from farms, feed mills, product development) and meet and connect with other colleagues who I wouldn't ordinarily see regularly.
- There aren't always enough hours in the day to do everything... but I like being busy!!

What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Research the company - show why you want to apply.
Check and check again - get someone to run through your application, to check there are no little mistakes and help make a good first impression.
Do you have any interview tips?
Be yourself- interviews and assessment days can be intense but being as authentic as you can will stand you in good stead.
Be prepared - make sure you have done your research on the Company and be prepared to demonstrate why you truly want to work there and are suited to the role.
Try and relax and be calm- the interviewers know you are nervous and they aren't trying to trick you in their questions. Take a deep breath and gather your thoughts first. It's okay to ask them to repeat the question.
Don't be afraid to ask questions - this is your opportunity to find out more about the company, the role and anything else!
Be on time and make sure you are presentable - first impressions count.
