Paula Handrea PJ Dip

Assistant Branch Manager

My journey with Beaverbrooks started in 2011 as a sales consultant at our branch in Bristol. After hearing about the company and doing further research, I knew this was going to be the place for me; a place where I could be myself, express my personality, work with people and have fun. Once I'd started I found out more about the great development and career opportunities that were available, I started studying for my JET and discovered my passion for our amazing diamonds. I then got accepted onto the Beaverbrooks management development programme and became a supervisor 1 and half years later, then 6 months after that I was given the amazing opportunity to work as the assistant manager of our brand new store in Whiteley.

I feel very lucky that I have a job that I love and that I get the opportunity to go to work to make someone else's day extra special. There is no greater reward than a customer leaving our shop truly happy, that's when I know I've done my job well. Passion for our products, love for people, a great development programme, lots of support from my managers, hard work and determination have all played their part in helping me to build my career with Beaverbrooks, now I can't wait to see what the future holds.
