Two Belfast women have been recognised by Jamie Oliver as two of his shining stars for their contribution to his new business venture, Jamie at Home.
Mandy McVeigh and Cathy Brennan-Bradley, and their partners, dined with Jamie in London recently at a gala dinner held by the TV chef, where they received five-star VIP treatment and sat next to the man himself.
Jamie at Home, Jamie Oliver’s thriving direct-sales business, has taken the province by storm.
The local women are currently among 2,300 consultants around the UK and Ireland who hold Jamie at Home parties, selling the exclusive Jme kitchen and homeware collection.
“Working in partnership with Jamie is enough reward in itself, so to be recognised in this way really was the icing on the cake for me,” said Mandy, who manages a team of more than 25 Jamie at Home consultants across the whole of Ireland.
“His enthusiasm and passion is infectious and he really does want each and every one of our Jamie at Home businesses to succeed — he’s certainly given me my own recipe for success!”
Mandy, who also does a lot of fundraising for the business, has achieved outstanding sales in the 10 months since she joined Jamie at Home.
“I’ve met so many wonderful people and sell gorgeous products, plus I’ve had the opportunity to bring in a substantial income and work hours that suit me, fitting them in around my childcare commitments.
“Not many people can say they do a job they love, but I can.”
Jamie at Home consultants also get financial rewards such as bonuses for reaching sales targets, cars to be earned on the car incentive programme and beautiful Jme products.
