Vending & Hot Beverage Co-ordinator, Sodexo

An enthusiastic and highly motivated individual working in the Facilities Management industry providing support to the vending and hot beverage string of Sodexo’s bow. My career with Sodexo began early 2015 when I joined the company as an administrative support to the security service line in the UK & Ireland.
My new security role propelled me onto a fast-paced learning curve and I was quickly identified as harvesting potential to expand within the business. In the first 9 months, I was promoted to Security Coordinator where I could expand my impact even further. My success in the role was recognised on a national level and I was awarded Sodexo’s Rising Star in 2016. It was around this point where I began supporting the Sodexo Women in Security networking group. Gradually over the next 12 months I took on more responsibility in this area and in early 2017, I became co-chair.
I have maintained my co-chair status in the group while moving through a promotion into a Project Management support role and more recently, into my new role in the Food Retail role. Early 2018 I was shortlisted for the Facilities We Are The City Rising Star Top 100 awards.
