About me

Hi there,

I've sent the last 10 years in the food industry. I started in food manufacturing, but for the last 4 years I've been a buyer for the Co-op. I'm passionate about helping people find their way into the industry and sharing any insight I can give.

I studied Business Studies at Sheffield Hallam University and graduated in 2017. As part of my degree I did a placement year and worked for Network Rail. It was great opportunity to learn what I didn't want early in my career.

As part of my day to day job, I have responsibility of the P&L for my category, so it's important I have a clear view of the end to end supply chain. I really enjoy planning my category strategy, but I love the fast paced environment of working in Food.

Please feel free to drop me a message if you're interested in starting careers in food or navigating a large organisation.

Thanks,

James
