"I joined Branston in October 2018 as an Account Executive for my third MDS secondment."

"At university I studied International Management with German, and as part of my studies I did a year long internship in Germany, working at a frozen yoghurt start up business. This internship sparked an interest to work within the food industry, which led me to apply to MDS as a graduate. I was curious to observe the different stages of the supply chain as well as other areas of the industry and MDS had the only scheme offering the opportunity to do this in four different companies.

As an Account Executive at Branston I support the Commercial Manager. My focus is on the customer; I prepare sales reports and analyse data using KPIs such as budget versus performance as well as assessing changes in market prices. Key projects that I’ve worked on during my time at Branston include reducing waste at customer level and introducing further KPI trackers.

Branston has provided me with experience in a customer focused role, as opposed to my previous roles within the MDS scheme which included QA and supply chain. I have enjoyed working within an analytical role but also look forward to my next secondment working as part of a procurement team."
