What attracted you to Vimto?
I’ve been a huge fan of Vimto since being young so firstly that attracted me. When I saw my job advertised it really did stand out; not only does it have a cool brand but it’s growing and I could see the potential.
When going through the recruitment process it was clear what the culture of the business was like and to me that’s the most important thing (I can’t lie the offices really did impress though). It represents the cool; quirky culture we have. It was also clear that people are the most important thing, again being in recruitment I believe that people make businesses successful.
When I was offered the job there was no hesitation – it was a yes from me straight away!
What do you love about working here?
Honestly, it was the team! I met a lot of people I would be working with over the 2 stage process. So on my first day it was like I already knew everyone. No scary first day nerves!!
I love Vimto, I love the way it’s run, I love the direction it’s going and we’re expanding. It’s so exciting to acquire new business and grow the Vimto family more.
My role is so varied; I have a lot of responsibility which really motivates me. It’s so easy to do my job when I’ve so much faith in the brand and the business.
Outside of work, what do you like to get up to?
I would say I’m quite sporty, I play tennis a fair bit but recently started playing rugby. Yes, I’m a novice but you have to start somewhere. I live in Manchester so I have great restaurants and bars on my door step, so after a busy day there is nothing better than going out for food and someone else doing the cooking and washing up.
I would like to say I can cook however that’s where my skills are lacking. I try but it occasionally ends with a phone call to the nearest takeaway shop.
