Simone Allum

Food Designer in Innovation, Kellogs | Class of 2014

“After A levels I studied Food and Nutrition at Sheffield Hallam with a placement year as a Junior Food Technologist at Coop. Since leaving university I have been working at Kellogg’s starting off as an Assistant Food Designer and now currently a Food Designer in Innovation. School helped me in my career by being very open to each individual student being and going after whatever career they aspired to be in. They helped me figure this career out, as I would say it is fairly ‘niche’ and was not something I was probably aware of until GCSE/A-Levels. My teachers inspired me in Food Technology whilst at school and without that inspiration and passion I probably wouldn’t have found my career and be where I am today.”
