Our graduate stories



"I joined apetito in September 2012 on the very first Graduate Programme. I was initially drawn to apetito for several reasons; first and foremost, it’s a business which genuinely cares about its employees and their development. As a graduate training and development support was important to me; as I began my career I wanted to ensure I had the best possible start and apetito have definitely given me this. Another reason I was keen to join apetito was because of the company’s fantastic record of consecutive growth year on year."


Making a real difference in Sales

I began my apetito career in Wiltshire Farm Foods, spending six months as a Marketing Executive for Healthcare Professionals. I was given the task of researching and establishing a suitable charity partner for Wiltshire Farm Foods. I was given support from my Line Manager but at the same time, I was given the authority to make strategic decisions.

Since then I have progressed through the business working in different departments and gaining experience across numerous markets. Upon completion of the Graduate Programme, I joined the Care Homes team and spent four years in different roles. I am now the Divisional Manager for apetito’s Foodservice division and responsible for all aspects of the business unit, including new product development, profit & loss and managing customer relationships. Throughout my journey I have been given support and opportunities to further my development. I have also been able to attend many training courses including sales, negotiating, management, food safety and dementia awareness.
