First Aid at Work
I am spending most of my time doing programme management for The SF&D Academy Programme at the moment. I recently attended a reception to celebrate our one year anniversary.
I also help the insights team as and when required, so have some involvement in consumer and category projects. Recently we produced a data dashboard for a brand who make oat products and a category project on hot puddings.
One of the reasons I love my role is the huge variety of companies we work with. On the Scotland Food and Drink Academy programme we work with companies at every stage of their growth journey, from two person startups to renowned, established brands.
I also enjoy the range of projects we work on and the different categories. One week I could be researching stuffed mushrooms, the next I could be looking at the cider or fresh pizza market. It’s also great to work with and learn from a team of highly experienced associates and employees who have a wealth of knowledge.
I already had some experience in different areas of the food industry from the graduate scheme that I did after university. I hadn’t specifically done an insights and marketing role, although I had had some exposure and felt that my skill set could be quite suited.
Working with data as well as face to face with companies was appealing and I was attracted to the mix of projects Levercliff work on, keeping you on your toes, always.
Lauren joined Levercliff in August 2017 after taking a BA Hons degree in English literature at Bangor University.

I joined Levercliff in 2017 and jumped feet first into the food and drink industry. There were a number of things that attracted me to the role, especially the variety of businesses and categories Levercliff works with.
Additionally, as an Insight Analyst, the role allowed me to develop my skills in the more strategic side of marketing, identifying opportunities for businesses and helping them grow.
Upon meeting the team and getting to know Levercliff a bit more, I saw there was lots of opportunity to progress and grow with the business.
During my time as an Insight Analyst I worked across a wide variety of categories, from pies to biscuits to frozen fruit and everything in between. Some of the businesses I worked with included Border Biscuits, Peters Pies, Wasabi, VitHit, Golden Casket and Grahams.
Currently most of my time is spent with two Welsh Government Clusters – Drinks and Sustainability. Here, I work with businesses on a one-to-many basis and help them grow in a number of areas, such as skills, marketing and innovation.
We have a fantastic team.
We have competitive salary structures.
We are growing.
