Why Westmill

The culture, positivity and progression opportunities are what attracted me to the business. The inclusive culture of the business made Westmill an easy choice for me. The positivity from all colleagues at every site across the business is what makes this such a great place to work, with years of experience and great relationships, everyone is supportive which is what drives the morale at Westmill. Progression was another key driver for me, the opportunities within Westmill and ABF have been fantastic, line managers and HR have always been supportive of career paths, from investing in bespoke courses for existing roles to helping gain qualifications for the next.

Describe your career at Westmill in 100 words

I started my career with Westmill as a Business Development Manager immediately after graduating. I built strong relationships with our routes to market and indirect customers to unlock opportunities for growth across the country. 3 years later I moved into the Regional Sales Manager role, working directly with our Wholesalers, Cash and Carry’s and Retail customers, responsible for the sales within the southern region. The role helped me gain a deeper understanding of exactly how to build winning relationships to help grow both businesses whilst understanding the dynamics of an ever-growing market. In 2020 I moved into the Senior Customer Manager role with direct responsibility for our sales managers along with personally managing key customers. I feel my journey with Westmill demonstrates the opportunities for personal development and growth within the ABF business.
