Meet The Team


Our staff don't mean a lot to us - they mean everything.

We recognise that trading online means our customers and suppliers will judge us purely on the service received. We work hard to make sure every interaction with our company is positive and hopefully memorable such as - answering the telephone in 3 rings and the staff member who answers will “own” the call through to completion. We aim to respond to all emails within 3 hours. Live Chat means exactly that – if our staff are in the office they will talk Live.

In pursuit of excellent service, we recruit “nice people” then empower them to achieve their full potential by creating a comfortable and supporting meritocratic working environment. Wherever possible we promote from within and there is no waiting for rewards, if a staff member overachieves in their role we elevate the role.
