Sarah-Jayne started her career in this industry working for Nelson Hind Catering at the tender age of 18 as a Trainee Chef Manager. Keen to move out of the kitchen and into sales, SJ started her sales career in the Nelson Hind Head office working for many of the future independents in our industry, burning the midnight tender deadline oil on more than one occasion!
In 1996 she joined Brakes in the junior ranks, and was promoted to National Account Manager initially in the Education Team, and then in the Contract Catering Team.
In 2003 she worked for Acquire, for 3 years, before returning again to be a National Account Manager but working for 3663 this time, mainly on the Prison Service Tender.
She is currently the Sales Controller for KFF, the largest, and longest standing SE based independent food wholesaler, and is a member of the Senior Management Team, reporting to the MD Chris Beckley.
