What is your role/background at Quorn?
I am a Cell Leader on B Shift currently working in Q2/3 Packing Hall. Having worked for an agency for several months I secured permanent employment with Quorn Foods in July 1998. I had previously worked in construction and property maintenance so coming into the food industry was a big change. Over the years I have worked in all plants and in most areas of production learning many new skills. I was seconded to the Q4 commissioning team during construction using my experience to identify and implement equipment in key areas of the process. I applied and was successful in getting the role of Cell Leader in 2011 spending two years in the Normal Care area moving to the Packing Hall where I am at present.

I monitor regularly that all checks and procedures are carried out and recorded accurately. Other responsibilities include weekly stock checks, package ordering and allocating tasks to Production Operators working in the Packing Hall.
