….it would probably be the best work experience in the world.  And now it is! Well, maybe not the world, but Hounslow is a great place to start (Rome wasn’t built in a day and all that).

A few weeks ago, I got to accompany our first teapigs work experience student, Melina, along to the Spark Education Business awards; recognising the talents of some of the best people who have organised and participated in work experience placements and apprenticeships in the borough in the past year.

Melina was nominated for ‘Work Experience Student of the Year’ for her time spent in our office over the summer, where she learnt about each of the elements that make up the teapigs team, and helped in everything from packing out orders to responding to customer queries.

Joined by staff from Brentford School for Girls and family, we are delighted to say that Melina won – yippee! She was fantastic when she came in to work for us, and did so well and has continued to spread the teapigs word by becoming a brand ambassador, so you may see her at a sampling or show very soon!
