What are the Best and Worst things about your job?
Best thing is probably the sheer amount of variety you encounter. You may have a meeting with a sales rep talking about ingredients in the morning, then the rest of the day you could be working on your supply chain maps - mapping out where in the world your ingredient comes from and what processes it undergoes along the way.
It can be really hard to juggle things - there are items that are pressing and need urgent attention, but at the same time there are things that whilst they aren't urgent, they have to get done and you need to find the time to do it all. Additionally, when someone comes to you with a task, whilst it may be important to them, it may not be high on your priority list so you need to be honest with them and work out a deadline that suits both of you as opposed to being pressured and trying to get it all done in an unrealistic timeframe.
What is the annual salary for this role?
Starting salary: £29,000 - £31,000
Current salary: £29,000 - £31,000
What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Be yourself - I'm not sure how much the application process has changed however they ask questions that relate to the ABF Grad values and it's your opportunity to really talk about what you've done, what you're interested in etc.
Do you have any interview tips?
Be yourself! Apart from your knowledge and skills they're trying to determine if you fit into the organisation. And at the same time, you have to decide if they fit into your definition of where you want to spend most of your waking hours.
Ask questions - no question is a silly question.
Relax during the dinner.
Don't be competitive against other candidates. Whilst they may be recruiting for one role, if more than one person shines, they will see what they can do.
