Our People

Our passion for food comes from our people

At Adelie we are on a mission to be the preferred choice in Food To Go – and we can’t get there without our people. That’s why we take the time to nurture and reward talent. If you want to work for a place that’s dynamic, flexible and fun, sounds like Adelie’s for you. But don’t just take our word for it. Read on to see what our colleagues have to say…

From our Food Heroes programme, to Adelie Awards and employee forums, we listen to our employees and reward hard work

Donald D’souza, Forklift Driver

I’ve been at Adelie for over three years now. I was attracted to the business by the number of colleagues that have been there for a long time, as well as the variety within the job and scope to learn.

“I’ve built a lot of relationships with people from all different backgrounds. It’s great that when I come to work I get to know people and make friends along the way.”

I enjoy being part of a team where all of my colleagues are well trained and know exactly what needs to be done. Even when under pressure, all of us work together as a team – it’s great!

Ben Westhead, Distribution Operations Manager

I was attracted to Adelie nearly three years ago now. When I learnt about the impressive range of customers Adelie services and the growth plans in place, I was extremely excited by the opportunity.

“As a man that loves food, getting to try all the new products NPD are planning to launch is definitely a highlight of the job”

To be successful at Adelie a person needs to be dynamic, open minded and willing to learn. If you’ve got that, it’s a fantastic place to work with a variety of people with different backgrounds, experience and ideas, all pulling together to provide exceptional service to our customers.

Kym Singh, Training Coordinator

For the past seven years I’ve been a Training Coordinator at the Redmoor site. What I enjoy most is delivering inductions. For new starters it’s their introduction to the business and I believe it should be a positive experience! For me, it’s a way of establishing a good working relationship with them.

“My tasks and responsibilities are numerous and varied. I enjoy almost everything about my role.”

I think to be successful within Adelie you need to be resilient, hardworking, flexible, focused and determined. I consider myself to be lucky as I’ve made some good friends here and everyone I work with has always given me plenty of support and encouragement.
