"Welcome Break was my first proper job, straight out of university. I was welcomed straight away and have learnt so much in my time here.

Everyone is super helpful, and I’ve never had an issue getting help when I need it. In terms of career development, I couldn’t ask for more, getting involved in all sorts of projects all tailored to what I enjoy and where I’d like to go.

My performance reviews have been focussed around what I want to do in the future and how Welcome Break can help me get there! It’s a lovely atmosphere in the office and on site, and I love the variety in what you get to do, from brand to brand."
