The best way to learn about life at Bel is to hear what our people say about their own experiences here....
Emma Brand Manager
"What I most value about working at Bel UK is the supportive and kind, yet challenging and ambitious team that I am lucky enough to work with".
I’ve been able to grow a lot professionally since joining the business, showcasing and honing my existing skills as well as learning many new ones. I’ve also built some lovely friendships and connections here, which makes the office a happy place for me – my manager and I are even nick named ‘the smiley team’ by others who recognise this! And who wouldn’t be smiling working for such iconic cheese brands with plenty of delicious samples on hand…
Celina Brand Manager
''I’ve been given the chance to hold three different positions in different departments, which has enabled me to broaden my skill sets and get cross-functional experience''.
''What I really enjoy at Bel is the company culture which I would describe as being ambitious, open-minded and caring. And of course, I enjoy the iconic brands too! Working on Babybel is obviously very motivating and rewarding. There are a lot of very exciting projects coming up in 2019, and the one I’m particularly looking forward to is our partnership with Comic Relief. We have been partnering with Red Nose Day since 1999, which makes me feel very proud! I would encourage anyone who feels close to our values “Dare, Commit, Care” to join Bel UK. And of course, if you also love cheese, this is the place to be ?''
Ashleigh Credit Control Supervisor
''I feel trusted and valued by my team to challenge and improve the Credit Control function with the UK business''.
'' I value Dare, Care and Commit equally and feel they are all as important. In my day to day role I have the freedom to dare for what I believe can be achieved, I have the care and support from my manager and have the commitment from myself and my team. Each of these values for me a key. And why is Bel different? I feel that Bel is different to other companies for many reasons, one of my favourites is the family value and bringing everyone together. I look forward to my future here.''
Jon Head of Channel
"Great brands, great culture and great people"
Bel UK maintains its family culture and this is reflected both through its brands and also the way it has respect and allows empowerment of its employees. The brands remain hugely iconic and are without doubt some of the most recognised within both Cheese and the Dairy industry as a whole.
Finally you reap what you sow within the Bel business. If you are prepared to work hard and prove yourself, not only will this be re-paid by promotional opportunities, but also the international presence of the business means there are opportunities internationally.''
Zee HR Manager, UK
'' I would by no means be where I am today if it weren’t for the interpersonal and technical guidance and support of my managers, which has allowed me to develop as a manager, as a coach, and as a team player''
What sets Bel apart from the rest is the “Care” aspect of things, and I genuinely believe that we put this value in practice on a daily basis: We inject Attention, Care, Compassion, Consideration, Empathy, and Understanding towards our team, their health and safety, their career, their wellbeing, their work/life balance.. Care in embedded in everything we do, say, and act on, and its what makes me proud to be HR at Bel .''
