ALL ABOUT LAYLA
BRAND ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE
All About Layla
My name is Layla Ahmed, and I am a Commercial Graduate at All About Food. I joined the business in July 2022. In this role, I work across different functions of the business, to experience and develop skills working in Category, Sales and Brand. I work with internal teams and external partners to help grow the business.
I am a graduate from the University of Leeds, with a bachelor’s degree in Chinese and International Business, and I have professional experience in the food and hospitality industry. Having waitressed in a restaurant, I developed a passion for food, and since have started my own cake business, and worked at a catering company.
What I Love About Working at All About Food
I love the fast paced and reactive nature of working at All About Food. I like how no one day is the same and that I am constantly learning about and experiencing the roles the different functions across the business play. I love how friendly and willing to help the team are. I love the foodie nature of what we do, and I believe my love of the products makes the work even better.
I believe our values and people principles are key reminders and good targets to hold oneself against, so that we can carry out our work out to the best of our ability, while working well as a collective. I really resonate with our people principles of true diversity and engaging each other as adults and believe that it is important to be honest, transparent, and respectful to one another.
