What my Job is all about

I started working for Lakeland as a homeworker in December 1993 packing catalogues in envelopes for mailing to customers. Then in May 2001 I joined what is now the People & Business Support team. I look after the Distribution Centre in Kendal and the Customer Contact Centre in Windermere, recruitment, job offers, contract changes, pay increases and resignations are just a small part of what I do. It’s not all HR related. I also organise manager conferences, looking after our CEO’s requirements. Oversee the company estate of printers/photocopiers. Assist with accident reporting and RIDDOR reporting. The list goes on.

Why I love working for Lakeland

Our team have all worked together for such a long time that we really care about one another and the ups and downs of our home lives – Lakeland is a friendly group of people. There is such a variety in the type of work we do and that is what I love about my working week.

My favourite product and why

URAD – This has to be the best product I’ve ever bought from Lakeland. You can almost hear the leather on your shoes or handbag absorbing the leather conditioner. What a superb finish it leaves. I LOVE IT.
