I joined Weetabix in 2013, having previously been a consultant with the business since 2011.I joined permanently, as I loved the culture.
It’s a cliché, but every day here is truly different. The business is small enough for you to find yourself involved in lots of things outside of your normal day job, which I really enjoy.
When I joined I was responsible for 2 factories. That has now grown to 3 factories, and I now get much more involved in business-wide projects. I am a member of the Senior Leadership Team, through which I have received many leadership development opportunities – and currently sponsor the creation of the Weetabix Apprenticeship Programme, something I am passionate about.
I have undertaken many training interventions for Performance Through People (our World Class Manufacturing Programme), and am in the process of studying my Prince 2 Project Management qualification, as well as my Insights Discovery Accreditation.
