Many people find it very easy to get wrapped up into the Budgens way of life and in the team spirit! I am definitely one of these people, from the minute I started..

I already enjoyed working in retail / customer service and wanted more of a challenge! The store at Nailsea had recently been redeveloped so I popped in!

I started working as a team member (or general assistant as we were known as in those days!), I worked part time during my time at college and university and then progressed to part time duty manager!

What other positions have I worked in at Tout Ltd:

I worked as a part time and then full time duty manager. I was lucky enough to have an opportunity to take on the assistant manager role at Nailsea and here I am now as Store Manager of Langford.

Why I chose to progress at Tout Ltd:

Many people find it very easy to get wrapped up into the Budgens way of life and in the team spirit! I am definitely one of these people, from the minute I started working in the team, I felt well supported and well challenged! That hasn’t changed, to this day, I still have exciting challenges on a day to day basis.

I would be happy to progress wherever the business feels I am best put to use! I am willing to give anything a go and really enjoy working within the team. If you were to join the team here, you need to have a flexible approach to work and a willing attitude.
