Why did you choose True?

I wanted to work for an exicting and innovative company and True is just that. They have the courage to do business differently and stand out. True values their staff and they provide me with exciting opportunities to grow and develop.

How would you describe your job to a five-year-old?

I get to make friends with some really lovely people, help them organise their day and plan fun events for them.

What do you love most — and least — about your job?

I love how varied my role is, and how I’m constantly challenged. I wish I had more time to get to know our partners.

Name an idea or company that reimagined a business or industry — one you wish you’d thought of.

I have been inspired by OddBox, and how they have created a new eco-friendly method of purcahsing and rehoming fresh produce that would have gone to waste. It has changed the way I do my weekly shop and made me more conscious of the complexities and impact of our modern food consumption.

Which person or people helped shape and inspire who you are today?

Since meeting my husband, he has been my constant cheerleader whilst always challenging me to be my best self. He has inspired me to embrace change, expect the unexpected and put your whole self into the things you love.

Director, Investment

“Ben has great experience of investing in the consumer space across various stages of growth. By sharing these perspectives, he brings balance to our investment approach.”

Ben Kirby

“Flora is efficiency personified; she is hyper-organised and thrives on busyness, all whilst maintaining an outer calm and personability that gives constant reassurance that everything will fall into place. If True were the mafia, Flora would be the ‘Fixer’ — if you want something done, she’s your woman.”
