Today, we are celebrating the wonderful Denise’s 12th anniversary of working for Cafeology.
Denise joined us on the 4th May 2010 as an admin assistant. In her own words, Denise remembers “coming across the job on My Sheffield Jobs on the final date to apply”. Denise is the proud owner of two horses and was busy at the stables mucking out when she came across the advert on her phone. Scared of missing the deadline, she “picked up the phone and called Cafeology with the hope of getting an interview”. Toni, our Finance Director answered the phone and after a quick chat invited Denise for an interview at our office based within Meersbrook Enterprise Centre.
Much like the weather today, it was “torrential rain” on the morning of her interview. The company was much smaller then and we only had “seven employees including Molly the white standard poodle”, which was perfect due to Denise being a dog lover herself. As you can probably guess…Denise got the job and the rest is history!
Throughout her 12 years with us, Denise has seen the business grow and expand resulting in the ability to roast our own coffee locally. “Over the years I have seen many changes but the most rewarding is watching “Teamology” continue to grow”.
Denise is one of our customer service champions manning the phones and handling any sales queries you may have. We’re incredibly proud to be ranked 5/5 on Trust Pilot with our customer service being pivotal to this. Denise is often the first person new customers speak to when they call us and we couldn’t think of anyone better to own this role.
A fond memory of Denise occurred a few years ago, when on our Christmas party it came to light that Bryan, our Managing Director, does not like wearing Xmas jumpers and would refuse to wear one. Denise got wind of this and “nipped home to grab a spare one” for Bryan…who by the end of the evening was pictured in said jumper, smiling (refer to photos). When a challenge is proposed to Denise, she will always find a way to overcome it.
At Cafeology, our people are the thing that matters most to us. Denise is a pivotal cog in Teamology and we wouldn’t be half as good without her. We’re very grateful for the role she’s done over the past 12 years. We think you’re fab - here’s to another 12!
