Meet the team: Vicky Tindall – Purchasing Manager

How long have you worked for Kingfisher? 22 Years this year

What is your role in the Kingfisher team? Talk us through a typical day? I ensure all the stocked raw materials are being delivered on time every day. I raise the orders for the products that are powder coated and follow these through from start to finish. I also order all the specialist items required that are not standard stocked items.

What do you enjoy about your role? It’s just a friendly, fantastic place to work and I get to buy things all day every day.

What is your favourite film and why? This is hard! Top Gun closely followed by Top Gun Maverick! Err Tom Cruise? Nah – just 2 proper feel good films!

I can’t get through the week without…. Wine! Definitely wine!

As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? Hairdresser.

Who would your ideal dinner party guests be (Dead or alive)? Bruce Willis, Jon Bon Jovi, Heath Ledger, Wentworth Miller, Michael MacIntyre, Ant & Dec, Diana Spencer (I like big dinner parties!).

What TV show are you currently binge-watching? The Crown.

Are you a morning person or a night owl? Night Owl.

Have you ever met anyone famous? Carla Connor from Corrie!

Staycation or exotic holiday? Exotic Holiday.

Favourite food? Indian (Hotter the better).

Favourite drink? Australian Shiraz.

What three things would you take to a desert island and why? Wine, Hot Blaze Sauce crisps and my two kids – well I can’t leave the kids can I! Wine because I took the kids and the crisps because I don’t feel I could live without them.
