Testimonials

Nadeen Lawand,
Head of Product
& Strategy –
DIYinspect
"I started at Pickles in the Innovation team as an intern in my final year at uni. Very quickly I was given many opportunities to contribute my thoughts and ideas and was given the exposure needed to build my skillset. After I finished university I started working full time and over four years I have been given the opportunity to learn a broad range of skills that have enabled me to take on the challenge of being Head of Product & Strategy for DIYinspect."
Stevie Kruck,
Senior Account
Manager
"I started at Pickles with no valuation skills and little industrial knowledge, but after working with some of the most knowledgeable people in the industry I now feel I am equipped to tackle any job that arises. Pickles has armed me with some of the best tools and technology I could ask for, which in turn allows me to concentrate on building strong relationships with my vendors to help grow our business. We all start somewhere and I am glad I started at Pickles."
Dillon Spillane,
Trainee
"Starting with next to no experience with Industrial, I’ve learnt a lot from my time here at Pickles and have felt encouraged every step of the way. The culture here is nothing less than supportive and I am proud to be a part of this company. If ever I’m in doubt, I find that someone close by is an expert and is more than happy to share their knowledge. "
