The Team at Yorkshire Dales Distillery would like to introduce you to our newest recruit – local lass (Redcar), Jen started life as a professional violin and trumpet player with The Band of His Majesty’s Royal Marines back in 1999 performing throughout the UK and Internationally.  She quickly moved on to being the Safety, Health and Environment Advisor with the Royal Marines Band Scotland up in Rosyth. 

Jen enjoys furthering her knowledge by undertaking extra-curricular qualifications, including recently completing her NEBOSH General Certificate – Well done Jen. 

Jen slots in nicely with our business ethos of providing sustainable and meaningful training and employment to Veterans, dependants, the long term unemployed and ex-offenders.  Jen is not only a Veteran, she is now a dependant as her partner is currently still serving. 

Her hobbies include raising her beautiful little daughter, wandering the outdoors and of course drinking gin 😊 

Jen’s role here at the Distillery is as Office Manager and keeper of the Directors diary!  Anyone calling the office will hear her friendly voice answering Option 3 or find her lovingly wrapping our online orders for dispatch.
