What's it like to work for your company? Working for Brown-Forman is great fun. We are quite a small team so everyone knows everyone else. You get to develop yourself across disciplines.

Why is it a good employer? Brown-Forman is aware that its employees are its biggest asset and goes out of its way to make you feel valued and rewarded. Moving here just over five years ago was the best career decision I have ever made.

What's the best thing about working there? There is such a relaxed atmosphere and flat structure that it is a pleasure to come to work.

Does the company offer any unusual benefits? Dental! We are an American company, so good teeth are essential. This, on top of car allowance, wine and spirit allowance, gym membership, healthcare, annual bonus and pension plans, means the overall package is very strong.

How does the company differ from its rivals? We are small in comparison to other drinks companies, we are focused on our long-term goals and always ensure we live and work by the Brown-Forman values.

Is there a definable company culture? There are no 'bosses' watching to see when you arrive and leave. This breeds people who are happy to work hard, knowing they are respected and appreciated.

If the company were a car what would it be and why? A Maybach 62 ultra luxury sedan, a reliable family car. We are a very reliable and trusted company, and as the Brown family still own the majority of our voting shares, Brown-Forman feels like a family-run business.

What's the training like and what qualifications can I earn? On top of our online 'Brand Building University' you can request funding for any courses offered in the UK. Everyone in marketing has done CIM diplomas and/or CIM post-grad, we take advantage of lots of Ashridge courses, plus, if you wish to do an MBA, you can easily request that.

What's your proudest achievement of the past 12 months? I have the pleasure of looking after the developing brands portfolio, so each week brings a new accomplishment or record broken.

Are you looking for any people right now? We have a two-year graduate training scheme, so every two years we select candidates to join our team. So far 100% of them have stayed.
