“Mandy has been there through everything over these past 4 years both professionally and personally and if I can have half the work ethic she has, I’ll be happy.”

What does Employee Ownership mean to you?

Hannah on Employee Ownership
“The business allows a lot of freedom in decision making which I believe helps you learn massively. If you are unable to make decisions and risk making some mistakes, you are never going to learn and progress. Also, because we are all co-owners, I firmly believe this helps to drive the decisions being made – we all want the business to be a success.”
