Not many would know that Fiona is a fully qualified bus driver! The picture becomes more complex as Fiona is also a woman of taste, evidenced by her love of all things Chanel. She is also known to pair fish & chips with pink champagne...not on the menu at her many onshore locations.

Away from work, Anna makes as much time as she can to travel back to Poland to visit family, and explore new areas in her home country. She has also recently discovered a passion for fitness, but the results from her punishing routine have seen her limping around the office, so she may need to undertake a risk assessment next time.

His focus will be to shape the culinary vision for the company, both through his modern approach to food, his passion for the very best produce and his mentorship & development of our next generation of chefs, through the company's 'Fresh Olives' apprenticeship programme.
