SAY HEY TO LAURA & ELLA, OUR SALES INTERNS
by Lucy Legret
It’s an exciting time at Candy Kittens, as we welcome two more members to our team! Hello Laura and Ella.
What’s the best part about working for Candy Kittens so far?
Laura: Although I’m in the Sales team, I like that at Candy Kittens, everybody works together and helps each other out. For me, working in a friendly environment makes the job so much more enjoyable, and I love feeling excited to come into work each day.
Ella: I totally agree with you Laura. That was my initial thought too. I love how social the office is; it’s been great meeting new people and making friends because everyone’s just so kind and welcoming. I already feel part of the team! Plus the free sweets is a pretty nice bonus.
What’s the best part of your role?
Ella: I like chatting to people- not only in the office but also to our customers. The role is perfect for me as I get to gnatter away all day and make some sales along the way! Working around Christmas time, I’ve been able to go to lots of consumer Christmas shows, which really got me into the Christmas spirit, maybe a little too early….
Laura: Similarly to Ella, I’m a bit of a chatterbox! It’s been a great way for me to meet and engage with lots of different people. I also like that I get to collaborate with other departments on a daily basis. I live in London so field sales have been a great way for me to get to know the city better. I’ve definitely been getting my steps in and I now know the tube map off by heart!
What’s your favourite thing about our brand new office building?
Laura: I love the location and the view from the office looking over the square, which today is filled with food stalls (I might need to pop down to for lunch!). Although it’s way too cold to be outside now, there’s a nice spot on the top floor with a terrace which will be perfect for winding down in the summer on a Friday.
Ella: It would definitely have to be the ping pong table for me! I love a spot of competitive ping pong during a break, it’s a great way to de-stress!
What’s your favourite flavour of Candy Kittens?
Laura: I can’t get enough of the new flavour Tropical Mango.
Ella: I absolutely love the Peach Fizz! They are my cheeky treat snack.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself?
Laura: I was a Ball Girl at Wimbledon Tennis, I got two weeks off school haha!
Ella: I can say the alphabet backwards, it’s actually pretty hard, try it.
As it’s December - I’ve got to find out what present do you hope Santa’s got for you for Christmas this year?
Laura: I’m going travelling in the New Year so hopefully Santa will bring me some summer stash.
Ella: Me too, I’m taking a gap year so it would be handy to have some swimmers for surfing in Australia!
