Behind the mask with Izzy

Name - Izzy

Where is your mask from? 

When did you start at Easter Greens?
I started at the Easter Road store in January 2020.

What do you do at Easter Greens?
I’m a shop assistant which means I have many tasks including picking deliveries, packing deliveries, stocking shelves, rotating stock, date checking, talking to customers and drinking lots of tea!

Why did you want to work at Easter Greens?
I was really excited at the prospect of working somewhere that directly aligns with my values.

What do you love about working at Easter Greens?
I can’t tell you how much I love working at Easter Greens. To be honest, it’s never really felt like a job to me because it’s something I enjoy so much!

If I had to choose a favourite part of the job it would be the people. All of the staff are so kind and genuine. We really are like a family and treat our customers with the same care and respect.

What is your favourite item that we sell?
This is a really tough question so I’ll just go with the entire sweets and chocolate section (that’s an acceptable answer, right?).

What do you like to do outside work? 
I enjoy going on long walks, watching period dramas, going out with friends, visiting gardens and playing the piano.

What gets you out of bed in the morning?
The excessive alarms I set that go off in two-minute intervals.

What are your ambitions in life?
I’m still working on this one. For now, I’ll just say to always be kind.

Once lockdown is over what's the first thing you want to do?
I’d like to go down to England to visit my family. I haven’t seen them in 8 months so I’m really looking forward to seeing them!

Tell us an interesting fact about yourself.
I started ringing church bells at the age of 10. Since then, I have competed in ringing competitions and have rang for many weddings!
