Case Study:

Jo Harwood – Sales Director

I started with Burton’s in 2007 as Senior Business Account Manager. Over the past 10 years I’ve held a number of different roles within the Sales function, and in March 2017, I became Sales Director for the UK and Ireland. I am extremely passionate about building strong partnerships with our customers.

As a working Mum, Burton’s Biscuits have been great in creating a flexible working culture. This has allowed me to be a parent first, as well as providing development opportunities to help me continue my successful sales career.
