With 15 years service, Alicia shares how her career has progressed with Miele whilst balancing with family life
Tell us about your career journey through Miele?
I joined Miele in September 2007. I needed something that worked for me and my family while my children were very young. I joined as a Weekend Product Adviser working in our flagship Experience Centre in Abingdon.
I loved working with our amazing products and sharing just how fantastic they are with customers visiting the Centre.
Miele was already a part of my DNA, following my Mum who worked for Miele for over 24 years. I have been with Miele ever since, building my career, increasing my hours as my family have grown up and I am now in a senior management role responsible for our own retail stores in six locations across the country.
Miele has provided ongoing support, development & progression opportunities and flexibility to enable me to grow in confidence and succeed.
The supportive environment, colleagues who are like an extension of my family and the most amazing products. I'm so proud to be part of a company that has never compromised on quality and continues to innovate and surprise me. I enjoy working in an inclusive, diverse and forward thinking business, that makes their colleagues' well-being a priority.
