I worked as a Bid Writer at Pick Everard's head office in Leicester between Sept 2013 and November 2015. During this period I feel I developed considerably both in a personal and professional capacity, and feel this is largely due to being exposed to working with so many different people and departments and having to develop the best methods to achieve objectives.
The firm is growing at a considerable rate and has some fairly ambitious growth targets, whilst at the same time attempting a wholesale revamp of its image and brand identity. Is to be hoped it retains a strong people focus and avoids becoming overly 'corporate', as I think its 'no-blame' culture and open door partner/director policy are (almost without exception) genuinely evident.
Overall it was a very good couple of years, and I will miss lots of the people there I was fortunate to work with. Has been a great springboard for my next role.
People-focused, generous holiday allowance
Less competitive salary
