by | 19 Feb 24 | Grounds Maintenance, News

Viki Halkett has been appointed operations director of Fresh Horticultural Careers (FHC) after originally joining the company over 15 years ago as a receptionist.

Halkett joined the company in 2007 in the roles of receptionist and administrator, managing the staffing solution’s temporary workers work force.

She returned in 2014 in the role of consultant after leaving in 2011 as a result of mandatory downsizing. In her role as consultant, Halkett has built strong relationships with the company’s clientele and candidates, says FHC.

In 2017 Halkett moved up again to the role of temps controller. Today she continues to run the temp team alongside assisting FHC owner Marian Barker with the challenges currently facing small businesses.

Barker comments on the appointment, saying: “Viki has been with me throughout the ups and downs the business has faced over the years. The years following Brexit and Covid have perhaps been the hardest of all. It is a testament to Viki’s tenacity and positive outlook that we continue to succeed and thrive.”

Halkett adds that she is “very much looking forward to the next chapter” for the company.
