Kayleigh Ann Sparkes-Smith – Milford
Kayleigh joined Innovate just 4 short months ago but has already made a huge impact. The primary service at Milford is cooked on-site for the 200 students of the school. The team also now cook for another 200 students and have this delivered to Moss Lane Primary down the road. For a team of 3, this is quite a feat and when they suddenly found themselves one down, Kayleigh and Chef Manager Fiona pulled together and ensured the service was faultless and the food remained delicious.
Fiona wrote to us a few weeks ago:
“Kayleigh is the most conscientious worker I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. her work ethic is second to none. I never have to ask or prompt her to do anything in the kitchen. One day she will be a fantastic manager without a doubt. She really is a fantastic worker and I woke up this morning to a whole list of times and dates as to when she can come in early to help out and do overtime – All of this is completely off her own back. I know I could leave everything in that kitchen to Kayleigh and I wouldn’t have to check if it was done properly.. because she’s so conscientious about everything.
Our dear ex-colleague left suddenly, but Kayleigh handled the situation really well, remained calm and professional and worked her socks off to make sure the children were fed. She’s brilliant!”
We are thrilled to give Kayleigh the March award and on behalf of all of us at Innovate, want to thank her for her continued efforts.
