Why Westmill

Even during my first interview, I knew that Westmill would be a great place to work. I’d already met some employees who shared their career stories and when I started to learn more I was fascinated by the complex supply chain. The beauty of working for Westmill is you get all of the perks for working for a big business like ABF and at the same time getting all of the opportunities you get working for a much smaller company. It’s very important to me that I am continually learning and developing, Westmill have given me opportunities which stretch me (and that even I didn’t know I was ready for), whilst taking the time to ensure the right support is available.

There are so many things I love about the culture at Westmill, to try and summarise it everyone here is really passionate about our people and our products.

Describe your career at Westmill in 100 words

My career in Westmill has been an absolute whirlwind. I joined Westmill on their graduate scheme in 2013 and since then I’ve been able to work at all of our UK sites, Enfield, Trafford, Selby and Oldham doing a number of different roles within supply chain. In my five years I have had six different roles which have ranged from Team leader, Mill management and project management. I’ve been lucky enough to manage some great teams and great projects all of which have made a big impact on my development and who I am today.
