A great career move
Just 20 months after starting out as a farm trader at Gleadell’s southern office near Warminster, 26-year-old Helen Huett is convinced she has made a great career move.
The job can be demanding, but Helen relishes the challenge, spurred on by Gleadell’s can-do culture and her supportive colleagues.
“It is clear that employees who perform well are recognised, she says. “I feel the company wants you to succeed, and Gleadell gives you the tools and support to do so.”
Her role includes purchasing grain, pulses and oilseeds, as well as selling seed and fertiliser products to existing and new growers. She also visits farmers to develop her network.
Studying business management with marketing at university has stood her in good stead, and her once-limited agricultural knowledge is swiftly improving.
Helen has already completed several sales and agricultural training courses, including the BASIS Seed Sellers Certificate and a FACTS course now beckons.
“It is a work-driven environment, and people want you to do well. Things are going in the right direction and I look forward to what my future holds at Gleadell.”
