I love my job and I get a buzz from working with a fabulous team of Partners, providing amazing customer service and selling beautiful products. Every day is different and retail gives you a real sense of achievement.

My very first job in hospitality was working as a kitchen porter in a local seafood restaurant when I was just 15 years old. Within a couple of months of starting I was working full-time creating starters and desserts.
