We caught up with Hannah Sharkey this week, Marketing and Sales Executive at Foods Connected to hear about her proudest moments at Foods Connected so far, what she's looking forward to in the next year and more!
What attracted you to your chosen career in the Food Industry?
I was attracted to a career with Foods Connected as it greatly aligned with my academic background and career interest. From studying Biology, Home Economics and Business at A-Level, alongside graduating with a degree in Business Management, working for an innovative company offering state-of-the-art management solutions seemed like a perfect fit!
What has been your proudest moment of your time with Foods Connected so Far?
I am proud of how I have developed my interpersonal skills and improved my system knowledge from joining the team as a Business Placement Student in 2020, to now being a Marketing and Sales Executive. I am also proud of the various courses such as ILM Leadership and Management and PRINCE2 that I have completed during my time with the company.
What is something not many people would guess about you?
I love travelling and exploring new destinations. Especially if it involves soaking up some sun and enjoying the local cuisine!
What advice would you give those looking to kick start a career at Foods Connected?
I would thoroughly recommend Foods Connected as a career path! No two days are the same which I find exciting and motivating. Everyone is approachable and friendly – which makes settling into the company so seamless. There is also a very supportive culture that encourages you towards achieving your career goals.
What are you most looking forward to in 2023?
I am looking forward to being a part of the continuous growth of the company as we explore new markets and opportunities. We have a great dynamic with a strong team spirit so I’m also looking forward to the upcoming team days we have planned.
