#beatonsbod: A Marketing Meerkat for 'Beatons Central'

Beatons Bod: Zoe Moxham
What's your role and what do you like best about your job?
I'm Zoe Moxham, I have worked for Beatons for over two years now, I am currently the Marketing Manager but still squeeze in some Front of House shifts here and there. I love getting to know new people and working at Beatons as part of a team is the perfect way to do that, both with our lovely customers and members of staff. Oh, and  most importantly I met my wonderful husband through work, which obviously has to be the best thing about working for Beatons so far!

What's your favorite drink or edible from our menu?
My favourite drink is definitely the Peppermint tea, it is amazing. The scent hits you as soon as you open the jar and it warms and refreshes you in the perfect way. I love all the stews on the menu, particularly the beef Bourguignon and the lamb and lentil, although all the gluten free options we have now are amazing and having so much choice is great!

And how about your favourite book from our shelves?
I  will be honest I struggle to find the time to read, as I am the sort of person that gets totally involved into a book and nothing else exists, and of course nothing else gets done! I love reading the books we highlight in our monthly book reviews however, it means being able to read totally different genres and also a lot of local authors, which I enjoy. If you are ever stuck for what to read, look out for our reviews, either highlighted here, in the Bulletin or on our website, we have accumulated quite a number now!

Which of the ways we like to go about things at Beatons means most to you and why?
I love the fact that we have to 'sparkle' at Beatons. Making people smile, feel welcome to our tearooms, and really looked after! This can be extended to the Marketing side of my work also as we want people to see this ‘sparkle’ too in the way that we advertise, the events we host and the way that we engage on social media. 

f you were an animal, what would you be?
I am a Meerkat, according to one internet questionnaire, due to the fact I am a people person. I enjoy socialising and working in a group. Others apparently appreciate my loyalty and willingness to help.
However, I quite wanted to be an owl of some variety., silent, serious and wise! Able to take to the skies silently and soar peacefully through the thermals...
