BIDBI Staff Spotlight On: Sarah Giblin

  • Team BIDBI
  • 10th June 2016

As part of a new series of blogs, we’re going to be putting the spotlight on a different member of our team every few weeks. It is our hope that these posts will provide some interesting insight inside the company; which helps our readers to see exactly what makes our staff tick.

It was Sarah Giblin – our Sales Co-ordinator – who had the honour of getting things underway. Having now been with the company for some time (she joined in March 2014), Sarah has become an integral part of our operations.

About Sarah’s Role

As well as being responsible for dealing with queries surrounding the progress of orders and the management of UPS shipments, Sarah’s role also requires her to excel in a number of other areas:

What Does Your Role Entail?

My main role is to get all orders through to payment. I then need to get these processed through production and sent out the door. I’m also responsible for getting payments in and inputting the orders.”

What’s Your Favourite Project That You’ve Worked On?

“Whilst I haven’t worked on an individual project, I have enjoyed making the role my own and streamlining the job.”

What Working for BIDBI Means to Sarah

As a whole, we like to think working for BIDBI is a pretty enjoyable experience. As well as getting the opportunity to work on projects for some of the world’s top fashion brands, staff also become part of the family from the moment they join us.

We’re also seriously passionate about what we do and we think that rubs off on those that become part of our close-knit team:

What Do You Enjoy Most About Working for BIDBI?

“I love the team that I work with. We call ourselves ‘the A-team’. We are all friends outside of work too, which helps to make work more enjoyable and create a nice environment to work within.”

How Important Was BIDBI’s Eco-Friendly Approach to You When You Chose to Join?

“It was a bonus when applying for the job, as I am a keen recycler. We also get the odd free bag! It goes through me if I have to buy a carrier bag now.”

Away From the Job

Equally important to the time our staff spend in the company is that which they spend outside of it.

The eldest of six, Sarah enjoys nothing more than spending time with her family. She’s also a keen exercise enthusiast with a particular interest in cycling – although she does confess to this being dictated by the weather:

What Are Your Other Hobbies Away From the Job?

“I love to read and watch films. I always aim to go to the gym and mountain bike whenever I can.”

So there you have it, that’s Sarah’s story. Make sure you keep coming back to the blog in the coming months to find out more about our team. Next up we’ll have Olivia Roddis, our Accounts Assistant.
