Julie joined Tregothnan in July 2015 having previously worked for Cornwall Air Ambulance as Head of Retail. At Cornwall Air Ambulance Julie worked with a team of 25 staff and over 250 volunteers, updating retail outlets to maximise potential growth for the charity.
Prior to working for this esteemed Cornish charity, Julie worked for The National Trust – her first role based in Cornwall. Julie moved from the South East to Cornwall in 2002. While at the National Trust she was operational across Cornwall and Devon in setting up retail shops.
Julie is Operations Manager at Tregothnan in the Trading Department of the Estate. Her role involves overseeing the tea and floristry businesses, working closely with the production team as well as sales and marketing to ensure we offer great service and products to all of our customers. Luckily for us, Julie is super organised, always smiling and keeps us all motivated with sweets!
Julie is not someone who sits still for long…alongside working at Tregothnan, Julie and her husband have recently set up a new retail business at their family farm in Stithians, helping to keep the local community well stocked with food.
Julie feels one of her biggest successes to date was overseeing the launch of our tea range for Liberty London saying, “This was a huge team effort and everyone pulled together to make it happen, it was a very proud day seeing the first pallet of caddies going to London.”
