I’ve just finished my internship at Sipsmith Independent Spirits. Here I was working as the Activation Sales Manager.
Working at Sipsmith has been a joyous experience combining off-trade sales with a strategy and enthusiam inspired by the founders. One might say an infectious courtesy and respect that ensures all of those envolved within the Sipsmith family, from the founders to the sales assistants right the way down to the discerning drinker are all seemingly drawn in by the excitement of what has been acheived and what is acheivable.
In no way has my role been static or monotonous, it has been a whirlwind of new challenges and I am always willing to take these on due to the belief that I am part of something. Working within a small team has been extremely beneficial, never a dull moment and a far cry from my previous work in the financial sector. Here I can appreciate a “product”. Something that brings people together within an industry which is hard work yet rewarding, very much along the lines of the mantra “work hard, play hard”.
Unfamiliar with WEXO before I now realise how it has enabled companies such as Sipsmith to get the best out of their interns.
