My development during the graduate programme
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 including; Client Development Manager and Key Account Manager. 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.
