Manda Joyce - Retail Assistant
Department: Retail Staff
Job Title: Retail assistant
Role: Divining the perfect bottle for each customer that comes into the shop.
Interests: Growing fruit and veg on my allotment, cooking and eating it. Singing Alto, whether with an orchestra in a huge choir, or unaccompanied with a handful of others.
Likes: Wild swimming, nosing into other people's houses on a dark evening, cycling through the scent of lime tree flowers on a warm evening, a decent B&B's full English breakfast.
Dislikes: Undercooked egg whites. Unthinkingness.
If you could be served any food/dish what would it be? The salmon caviar on a blini that I had in Moscow many moons ago.

What do you like about working with The Oxford Wine Company? I'm always learning.
What is your most diverse achievement? Becoming a software engineer after graduating in English and History.
