Emily successfully completed the programme in 2017 and is now the Shop Manager in Lincoln.
Why did you want to become a Shop Manager at Farmfoods?
For me it really was the career I never considered. I hadn’t heard of the Farmfoods Management Development Programme but I was looking to pursue a career in retail and Farmfoods ticked all the boxes.
What has been your favourite part of the programme?
I enjoyed it all but if I had to pick, it would be the distribution placement. I loved spending time at the depot and even liked the time spent in the freezer at minus 22 degrees!
If you had to go through the process again, what advice would you give yourself?
One thing for sure is to be less nervous; at Farmfoods you really do have the support you need so don’t be afraid to make mistakes; they happen and you can learn from them.
