In January we welcomed our new Logistics Shift Manager, Lucinda, to the team. We asked Lucinda why she chose Fresh as the ideal company for her career change and what she thought after her first month.

My name is Lucinda & I am 37 years young. I recently made the move to Derby from my lifelong home in Hertfordshire.Having spent the last 15 years working in fashion & retail, I was looking for an exciting challenge in a new industry.

After endless hours trawling the internet, I came across Fresh. I saw that they had a great reputation as an employer, lots of amazing press & more importantly… a vacancy for a Logistics Manager.

At first I was worried that I may not have all the necessary skills, but I was assured that Fresh are all about finding motivated, positive people to join their team & that they would be happy to invest in me by providing all the training I could possibly need to excel in my new role.Initially the thought of trading in ‘heels for wheels’ was extremely daunting. I braced myself for sleepless nights constantly questioning my decision. Happily Nothing could have been further from the case.

Everyone at Fresh is so friendly and welcoming. l had a ‘buddy’ to work beside until I was ready to go solo & everyone bends over backwards to help when I need it.I have enjoyed every minute of my first month with Fresh, I’ve successfully ditched the Burberry for a high-vis & I’m loving life with my new work family. I am really looking forward to a bright future in my new career…There really is nothing like a ‘Fresh’ start.
