Kimberley Barton
Events Manager

What led you to apply to Wrigleys for your role?

Upon returning to full time employment after having my son, I was drawn to the position at Wrigleys as I had no previous experience of working within the legal sector and wanted to explore this industry. I believed as an employee I would be treated equally and have the opportunity to develop through learning and development opportunities offered by the firm.

What sets Wrigleys apart from other places that you have worked?

I feel at home here. I have gone from having little confidence to having the confidence to suggest ideas or ask for help when I need it; working collaboratively and asking for support is just a natural part of my day now.

I feel secure and reassured that everything is under control and all decisions are considered; this has influenced my own working habits in a positive way.

I love how Wrigleys is a very progressive firm, especially with equality, diversity, and inclusion. Wrigleys focus on promoting wellness and offer various resources and awareness days, mental health and wellness resources. In addition to this, the agile working policies have provided me with a much better work/life balance which enables me to be more present as a parent.

How would you sum up working at Wrigleys?

Since starting in the general office team, I have been given many training and development opportunities. I passed my GCSE’s and gained a level 3 apprenticeship in Business Administration. I then saw an internal opportunity as an Admin Assistant within the Events Team which I applied for. Although I had very little experience in the role, Wrigleys were very supportive and provided me with the training I needed to ensure I succeeded in this role. Since moving into Events, I progressed to Events Coordinator and most recently I have been promoted to Events Manager. The firm has supported my Level 4 Diploma in Events Management. It is quite amazing to think how much Wrigleys has supported and encouraged me to progress over the recent years of my career.
