"I have worked for the company for 4 years and I managed The Slug and Lettuce at Bank successfully for 2 years. In September 2001 I was offered a trainee operations managers role and by January 2002 I was appointed as an Operations Manager.
All through this I was judged on my merits and not my history.
In my job I am given a lot of freedom to make decisions and I work closely with my team. It’s exciting, you get a chance to make a real difference to businesses and lives, to develop others and help them achieve their aspirations.
Being trusted and empowered. Using my own ideas and initiatives.”
