SAY HEY TO LUCY AND JEMMA, OUR MARKETING & OPS INTERNS
By Lucy Legret
It’s an exciting time at Candy Kittens as we welcome two more members to our team; Lucy our marketing intern and Jemma our ops intern. Welcome to CKHQ!
What’s been the best part about working for Candy Kittens so far?
Jemma: I've only worked at CK for just over two weeks now and I love how funny the team is. I already feel part of the team!
Lucy: Yeah, the team are so friendly. On the first day, I felt so welcomed by everyone, which was lovely. The best part about working for Candy Kittens is that every day is totally different from the next; one day I’ll be at Boots HQ setting up a sampling event, and the next day I could be creating sweet parcels to send out to clients. You get to learn a lot in a short amount of time, which is really exciting!
What’s the best part of your role?
Jemma: I love being about to do a wide variety of tasks and the fact that the internship is adaptable depending on the experience you wish to gain. While I work with the operations team in the office, I've been able to help out the finance and marketing teams.
Lucy: I love that I am able to help on the Candy Kittens social media, replying and interacting with our customers as well as being in charge of writing the blogs each week! The best part of the internship is that I’m able to gain experience within different aspects of CK’s marketing. I've already learnt a lot on the job.
What’s your favourite thing about our brand new office building?
Jemma: I definitely love the fact that we have table tennis in the office! It's really lovely to chill after work and play a game. The other day, my competitive side came out at the Christmas party, when I played in the table tennis tournament!
Lucy: We were so lucky to have just started our internship at the new office! My favourite area of CKHQ is around the dining table. It’s where a lot of us go to have a cup of tea in the morning and have a chat before we start the day. Not to mention the fact that it's surrounded by sweet treats and snacks, so I am often seen rummaging through the shelves at lunchtime!
What’s your favourite flavour of Candy Kittens?
Jemma: Oh it’s got to be Sour Watermelon. I can’t stop eating them in the office!
Lucy: I’m not sure because I fluctuate between Sour Watermelon, Blueberry Bliss and Wild Strawberry. It would have to be all three!
Tell us a fun fact about yourself?
Jemma: I can ski backwards.
Lucy: I’m really good at limbo. To date, no one has ever managed to beat me!
As it’s December - I need to ask, what present do you hope Santa’s got for you for Christmas this year?
Jemma: Hopefully, I might be getting an Apple watch as I’ve wanted one for so long!Lucy: I really want a glass teapot set. Sounds a little crazy or boring, but I love peppermint tea and I think a glass tea set would be so cute!
