After beginning her career as a beauty therapist at Langdale Spa, Kerry is now working in sales for the business.
“I originally chose a career in beauty therapy and worked at Langdale Spa,” she said. “I was there for a couple of years, went to another hotel, then came back to the sales office at Langdale after a year.
“I enjoyed working for Langdale as a company and wanted to try something different, and they were more than happy to take me back.
“While I was in beauty, I learned a lot from Langdale. They made sure I was well trained in customer service and I felt like they were putting in the effort with me.
“Now I feel like I’m learning lots more from the business in my sales role. They encourage me with my college course, which is great.”
Kerry is studying a Level 2 Graphic Design course at Kendal College with the support of Langdale and her manager, Dan Visser.
“Dan has been more than happy to encourage me,” she said. “I had a taste of marketing which I really enjoyed so I thought it would be good to do a graphic design course and Dan told me to go for it. He’s seen how it could be incorporated into my role in the future and has been very supportive. I’m glad that I’m able to try new things with Langdale’s support.
“I study part time and my course explores what to do if a client came to you with a design brief. I’ve been speaking to the marketing team at Langdale about that to get a bit of advice. I’m enjoying all aspects of it so far, so I’ll see what I want to do in the future.”
