Meet The Team

With just one week to go until we reach the mid-point of the year, we’ve been having a look back over the past 6 months and reviewing once again just how far we have come. The team has grown substantially, new processes have been implemented, there are new and exciting projects on the horizon and of course we’ve been inundated with Baby Fever!

Our Operations Manager; Jess gave birth to a beautiful baby boy named Franklin in May while our soon to be Mum’s; Grace & Lucy are patiently awaiting the arrival of their very own bundles’ of joy in July. So, with three of our stars heading off on Maternity Leave and newbies joining us left, right and centre, we thought now would be a great time to introduce you to all the faces behind the Tilletts team. From Warehouse, to Stores to HQ, I managed to pin them all down this week for a ‘Get To Know Me’ session courtesy of yours truly.

Without further adieu, let’s begin…
