Pet sector HR manager nominated for award

Pet industry worker Terri Roberts has been shortlisted for a prize at the Specsavers everywoman in Retail Awards.

Terri, HR manager at north Wales-based pet, agricultural and equine retail Farm and Pet Place, has been chosen as a finalist in the ‘Leader of the Year in a business with a turnover under £200 million’ category.

Maxine Benson MBE, co-founder of everywoman, the UK’s largest community of women in business, states: “Retail is the largest private sector employer in the UK, and is evolving rapidly with many more job opportunities transpiring through the explosion of online shopping. The industry offers huge variety and diversity of opportunity. These finalists demonstrate that, despite the challenging economic climate, determination, hard work and leadership can underpin commercial success, and they are a shining example to others looking to make their mark.”

The winners of the seven different categories will be announced at a ceremony at the Savoy on 13 September. The event will also feature a ‘Woman of the Year’ award, the winner of which will be chosen from all finalists. For further information visit
