All About Ella
Ella Cotton, Procurement executive, Started July 2022.
Originally from Bedford, a small town north of London, but have always been attracted to living and working in the north. In my free time you can find me training and competing for Water polo, whether that be in the gym or halfway across the world. I also love going for food and cocktails with the girls.
My previous experience stemmed from studying Business at Sheffield Hallam University at which I attained a first-class degree. During lockdown and my second year of university, I started working at Tesco, where I gained insight into a leading food retailer. This gave me a real taste of the commercial working world and confirmed this was the sector I wanted to progress into. A huge part of my life and experience has come from playing Water polo for GB from such a young age, which gave me the experience of working within a team, resilience, and self-motivation.
What I Love About Working at All About Food
Within my first few weeks at AAF, I have felt extremely welcomed and supported by every single person within the company. The work environment within the office, resonates a highly motivational, honest and positive atmosphere throughout the company.
One thing that has resonated with me about AAFs culture, climate and values, is teamwork. Teamwork within AAF is highlighted daily, through every team working together and motivating one another to succeed in given projects and product deadlines. Since working at AAF, I’ve found that every team gels together by using cross functional ideas to create the best possible outcome, through various lenses of the business.
