Alex Ashby - Production Administrator
“My colleagues at Sleaford Quality Foods are friendly and welcoming. They made me feel part of the team from my first day and senior team members are very supportive and approachable. It has been a great place for me to learn and build my career.”
I joined Sleaford Quality Foods in June 2018 as a QA (Quality Analysis) assistant, a role that involved ensuring all raw materials and finished products conformed to strict guidelines and specifications, both in the lab testing goods and assembling blended products, or on the production floor conducting quality inspections. In 2019 I moved into Production, where I have been able to utilise the skills and knowledge I gained in my previous role. My responsibilities now include conducting GMP audits to maintain and improve standards, printing labels ensuring all the information conforms to specification ready for QA approval and carrying out stocks checks, reporting any discrepancies to our Stock Coordinator. I really enjoy working at SQF. Each day is different and is faced with new challenges, but we all work together as a team to achieve unrivalled customer service.Read More
Thomas Warrington – Customer Sales Advisor
“From my first day with the company, I knew I was in good hands. I was quickly made to feel at ease, part of a team and welcomed by everyone. It can sometimes be daunting starting at a new job but not on this occasion.”
I started my SQF journey in November 2014 as a hygiene operative. The role involved machine washdowns and overseeing deep cleaned areas ready for production planned works orders. The following year I successfully applied for a position in Quality Assurance, a new administrative role that saw me start to engage with customers, providing them with accurate and swift documentation. I was then promoted to a senior QA position which involved daily management of the department along with me overseeing regular procedures and processes that form part of the company’s important customer support model. In August 2021 I moved from Quality Assurance into sales for a new challenge and I am currently working through the company’s planned training road map of progression that will eventually lead me to becoming a Key Account Manager.Read More
John Crockett – Maintenance Coordinator
“Looking for a career change, I joined Sleaford Quality Foods in June 2016 in the position of Forecourt Operative and immediately felt part of the team.”
I was given excellent training for my new role and received help and guidance from my new colleagues and longer serving members of the team. Since starting with the business, the management team have always demonstrated trust and respect towards myself and the wide range of tasks I’ve completed. They are always available to provide help and guidance whenever required. In August 2021 I successfully applied for and was promoted to my new position as Maintenance Coordinator. I’m thoroughly enjoying the challenge in what is an interesting and varied role.Read More
