Our graduate stories



"I was attracted to apetito as it provided me with the opportunity to work for an organisation that has a clear sense of purpose. It also struck me as an exciting innovative company to work for, as demonstrated by our
Queens Awards for Innovation."


My development during the graduate programme

I started at apetito in September 2014 a Sales and Marketing Graduate within Specialist Nutrition. I managed a project developing a new sales channel for the provision of texture modified diets to small care homes. Within this role I was responsible for the development of the business model, as well as executing the day to day front line sales within the care home sector and ongoing account management. I was given lots of responsibility and scope to manage the project and use my initiative from the outset. During my time as a Sales and Marketing Graduate I also managed a Queens Award application, which resulted in the business winning the prestigious Innovation category for Business Enterprise. I am currently working on an exciting new project in United States, which has allowed me to put everything I have learnt so far at apetito into practice.

apetito has provided lots of opportunities for development and training. When I started, I had the opportunity to have three days sales coaching to assist with my new role, and I also attended presentation and communication skills courses. I have been fortunate enough to take part in apetito’s flagship Leadership Development Programme, to assist with both personal development and leadership skills. The company have also been great in helping build up my knowledge base to assist with my roles, including allowing me to complete a course in Nutrition and Dysphagia training.
