‘I knew it right away; here I like to start my career!’

 

“I never expected to end up working in the berry industry, but when I first met the Driscoll’s team I knew it right away; here I like to start my career! After I completed my Hotel Management Study in 2012, I was not sure what kind of job I was looking for. Food has always had my interest, just as I always have been curious about different countries and nationalities.

At Driscoll’s I can combine these two interests every day. Within the Sales department I am responsible for the sales support of our retail customers in the United Kingdom and the Arabic countries, this means I plan in-store promotions, take care of orders and the administration. It is never a dull moment, as I constantly learn new things about the berry market all the time. Especially our team spirit makes our company unique.We have a young and enthusiastic team, it is just one big family!

The most exciting part of my job is definitely to build a strong relationship with our customers. When I can meet their expectations, even when this might be challenging sometimes, it makes me happy and satisfied.”
