Our People

The best way to learn about life at Bel is to hear what our people say about their own experiences here....

Celina Senior Category Manager

''I’ve been given the chance to hold different positions in different departments, which has enabled me to broaden my skill sets and get cross-functional experience''

Bel has provided extensive cross-functional experiences, from category to marketing to sales strategy. This progression has allowed me to continuously learn, broaden my skillset and challenge myself. Bel invests heavily into building its brands – and what fun and iconic brands to work on! If you love cheese, this is the place to be. The most precious benefit for me is the people I get to work with – truly wonderful. In the years I have worked at Bel, real friendships have developed, and I couldn’t be more grateful for that.

Freya Assistant Brand Manager

"From the family-feel of the office to the responsibilities given to employees, Bel UK is a really special place to work"

When I joined Bel UK straight from my degree, I knew I was in for a treat as I had the opportunity to work alongside like-minded colleagues on some of the country’s most iconic cheese brands. I have been fortunate enough to work on 3 of our brands, starting out on The Laughing Cow, on-boarding GoGo squeeZ into the Bel UK portfolio and most recently Mini Babybel. Each brand in our portfolio has very different strategies which allows each day and month to be different. I am proud of what has been achieved over the years including leading the first activated license on GoGo squeeZ with Disney back in 2022 to launching new pack sizes of The Laughing Cow and Mini Babybel into Costco – working on these brands is very rewarding.
At Bel UK, I love that my titled role is not the only place I can have an impact. Alongside being an Assistant Brand Manager, I also lead our Trade and Press comms for all brands, manage our UK corporate communications, trained as a Mental Health First Aider and helped form our Wellness Team, have an active role in our Social Committee including being a part of the Christmas Party Committee, the list truly does go on.

Andrew Demand Planner

"Bel is a welcoming organisation which put focus and care in employees wellbeing"

Bel is a welcoming organisation which put focus and care in employees wellbeing. The company has helped me grow and developed in my role as a Demand Planner and before that as Customer Service Manager. The benefit that Bel is a small size company is that you get exposed to how different functions operate and to work collaboratively with them. You have a lot of autonomy in setting out your day-to-day. I have been at Bel since 2010 and throughout the years the company strives to enhance its working standards and social aspects.

Donovan Key Account Manager

"Bel’s commitment of championing healthier & responsible food for all strongly resonates with me and I greatly respect the focus shown towards nutrition, better eating habits and reduced food waste"

Working for Bel has afforded me the opportunity to utilise my commercial experience and transition into a role where I can impact the convenience channel and have the support of the business to influence my customer relationships. I also really appreciate the diversity of our brand portfolio, traditionally we were recognised for our staple dairy portfolio which includes Baby Bel, Boursin and The Laughing Cow. Whereas our portfolio now includes innovative brands such as GoGo SqueeZ and Nurishh, giving many great offerings for our customers.

Ruth HR

"It truly is a fun and exciting place to work that invests heavily in its brands as well as its people"

After 9 years with Bel, I have been provided with cross-functional experiences and transitioned between roles that will help me achieve my goals. Maintaining a relationship based on trust and respect and encouraging a management style that not only listens to its employees but leaves room for initiative, ambition and personal development. Bel continues to recruit a growing number of hybrid profiles and skills that are ever more diverse, promoting our charter of commitments towards ‘Diversity, Equality and Respectful & Inclusive behaviours in the workplace.
