Many people aren’t aware of the variety of exciting roles within the food and retail sectors, so on Tuesday 25 November, we hosted an 'Inspiring Women' event at Sainsbury’s Holborn Store Support Centre. We invited along 100 young women aged 13-15 from three local schools and 100 women from the retail and food sector with the aim of partnering young women with professional mentors.
As part of the event we showed our 'From Cow to Customer' film, which shows the journey of a Sainsbury’s Cheesecake, from the point the cow is milked to when our customers cut into their desert. At the same time, the film highlights the variety of roles women play in the retail and the food sector.
You can watch the film below - you may be surprised how many different roles are involved and the number of opportunities there are for young women. And remember, if there's a role that particularly interests you, have a look on our jobs website - we might be hiring!
