You're Hired!

*Please insert The Apprentice theme tune here*

In June 2012 I started the Apprenticeship scheme, and now I am very pleased to announce that I have finished! Yippeeee

It doesn't seem like a year ago that I started at Jonny's Sister, but in my time here I have learnt so much and have established what my strengths and weaknesses are within business. I have now been taken on full time and keep bugging Jane for a fancy job title (I'm hoping for customer services queen or something similar!). People keep asking me if it feels any different now that I have finished my apprenticeship, and although my job role has stayed the same I now feel that I have an increased amount of responsibility within the company and I want to push myself further so I can continue to learn more. 

Big thank you to Janey for taking me on full time and here's to the next year to come... Who knows what will have changed!

Let Go Wild!

So this week amongst the Father's Day rush we took some time out to do something a little different...
Jane's brother, Jonny, has created a very unique and original drink called 'Wild'. It's kind of like a very classy and upmarket alcopop! The drink is a gin based sparkling cocktail infused with either elderflower, plum or sloe. As there are 5 under 20 year olds working at JS HQ at the moment, Jonny thought that it would be a good idea to do some market research on us. We agreed in a flash. To say that we liked a drink would be a bit of an understatement, 10 bottles later (and slightly giggly) we all came to the conclusion that it was our new favourite drink. Each flavour was unique and so refreshing, the elderflower tasted of a summers day in a beer garden, whilst the plum tasted of a night out. We are all very excited for these to be released into the bars and clubs of the UK and have our fingers tightly crossed for an invitation to the launch party (hint hint Jonny!).

So in the near future if you see a Wild on the shelf of your favourite bar or club, we highly recommend that you get one!

From left to right we have... Sloe, Elderflower and Plum!
