I wrote this blog a few years ago now. It was a day when we were trying to recruit for our brand new Bristol shop. I remember the day very well. Nerves, but very exciting times. And we found our team!
'This weekend I am going to get some rest, before we head to Bristol in search of the perfect team for the shop.
I remember my interview for howies. I drove from Devon to Wales so early in the morning, the dog in the back and the boyfriend driving.
I talked all the way because I was so nervous. I then got the call from Scania as David and Chris were running early!! So i rushed in. I was so nervous.
I took a sneaky call at my last work place and did a silent scream in the staff room when David rang me from what sounded like the windiest place in the Wales to say i had the job.
So I guess what I am trying to say is that if you have an interview for the Bristol shop on Monday, don’t be scared, come as yourself, and tell us some fun stuff.'
I came to work for howies because it is a company that is full of ideas, creative people, a place full of dreams and hard workers making stuff happen. I took the job like an excited child because I believed in everything that David and Clare had started.
Today is my last day at howies. It has been amazing and lots and lots of fun.... oh and of course tea drinking!
Thanks to a grand old team of super hard working people.
A couple of things i will never forget are team RAD, Ruben turning up to work as some sort of running machine, Mark from the london shop on model searching days, the shoots and long drives, amazing team riders, the print shop and the dancing, the day Jon broke my bike, then the day we found my new bike.... there are many more I am sure.
So, good luck team, ride fast, run like Ruben but just don't cut your hair like Ade! ( haha!)
