Jill Holgate

Jill has come a long way since working on the family farm as a teenager. She’s gone from milking cows, linking sausages and making burgers to becoming a top National Sales Manager for one of the largest catering butchers in the UK.

Her farming background gives her vital experience and understanding of both our customers and suppliers. The meat industry has always been a part of Jill’s life and despite training and working as a hairdresser for a number of years, her true passion for meat and the lure of an exciting career in sales proved too strong.

Over the years Jill has built up lots of experience dealing with sales on both regional and national levels. This experience is essential as it helps her overcome all the new challenges that she faces every day, as she travels the country visiting new and existing business. Jill is very hands on and loves training other members of the team, leading demonstrations and even getting involved with delivering products when the need arises.

“I believe that we go above and beyond for our customers every day. It’s just part of the culture of the company. We genuinely care about what we do and we’re committed to our customers. It’s a fantastic business to work for because we all share in this same belief.”

Jill is very proud to represent Birtwistles because she believes that what we offer is unique. The products we offer, the service, the people, the desire to do things right and the drive to consistently exceed customers’ expectations. It’s not something that Jill has ever seen before and that’s why she just loves sharing all this with customers old and new.

She’s passionate, committed and loves building strong relationships with our customers, which is vital to the continued growth of the business. She makes it a real priority to make sure that our existing customers are always happy because we know that you’re only as ever as good as your last order. This is why we never let our standards slip.
