You are currently working as Catering and Conference Manager at St John’s College, Cambridge. How long have you been doing this role? 

Since January 2005. There was a lot to change when I came to the college, from staffing, the food offer, service aspects, budgets, to make it in line with expectations from an internationally renowned university.

What do you love most about your current job?

The diversity of people I work with, from Students, Fellows/ Academics/ Politicians, Royalty, in a totally forward thinking environment in wonderful surroundings. It’s also wonderful to see the students develop and many come back and see us once they have left.
