Staff Profile - Rosie Budd

Name: Rosie Budd
Job Title:  Purchasing Assistant & Supplier Liaison.
First Started:  In November 2012 in a full time position, moving to a part time position after having my two children. I work three days a week here in the office.
Areas Covered: Working with Sarah specialising in sourcing member’s aggregates, ready mix, hire, waste and gas requirements along with the processing and querying of Kerosene invoices ready for accounts. Since 2018, I have been the group supplier liaison, which involves regular meetings and discussions with suppliers both old and new.
Describe SFL in 3 words: A close-knit team.
What first attracted you to SFL? I worked in farming during my gap year and returned throughout my university holidays.  I was excited to see the job at SFL advertised after I had graduated and returned to Kent, which meant I could continue to stay involved with the agricultural industry whilst making use of my economics degree.
What are your hobbies? Countryside walks (often with my children on my shoulders!), cake making and enjoying time with my two young girls who really keep me on my toes! I also love becoming involved with school life and helping organising events.
What's your favourite meal? A chicken or veggie curry – the spicier the better! My favourite desert is a summer pudding, not straight after the curry though!
