What is important?

We are a team of foodies! We pride ourselves on our passion and aim to be the World’s Number One destination for Food & Restaurants. We are in the midst of our “Taste Revolution” project which is keeping us exceptionally busy, but we are so excited to see the end result. We work collaboratively as a team and have built great relationships with the wider business. We are looking to bring someone to the team who will share their own insight and ideas, commercially focused but always considering the customer experience.
