Meet Our People
Bindu Purchase Ledger Controller
I have worked my whole career in Finance since qualifying with a Degree in Accountancy and Finance from City University when I was 21. I worked in the Civil Service for many years and have since moved to various industries including high-end fashion and fresh food before finding this role in health and beauty.
I have worked at Godrej for 6 years. I love working in Finance. Contrary to popular belief, it is interesting and varied and I love the fact I have interaction with every department in the company.
The best thing about working at Godrej is the ability it gives me to maintain a good work/life balance. I have a husband, 2 boys, a foster daughter and a dog at home and also act as a part time carer for my mother. Working at Godrej allows me to juggle these different priorities in my life.
Karl Senior National Account Manager
After many years working in the FMCG industry with big multi-national organisations, I joined Godrej as a National Account Manager in the Pharmacy channel and have worked my way up to Senior National Account Manager in the Discounter & Convenience channel.
I am very proud of my career progress within Godrej and enjoy working with the UK team. It's unusual to find somewhere you can make a direct impact on the business, feel appreciated and genuinely enjoy what you do!
My home life and family are very important to me and therefore it is essential that I am able to work in an organisation that allows me to maintain the balance of being a dad, husband, line manager, friend and business leader.
Faraaz Customer Services Representative
I have worked since the age of 16, within sales for a year initially and then in communications, until I realised that if I could bring together these skills, Customer Services is where I could really flourish!
With dreams of travelling in my spare time but difficulty picking where to go, I decided working in exports was a great way to sew the two together. I have had the opportunity to build a rapport with customers in Germany, Canada and Australia (to name a few) and I also get to explore some of these places!
Despite my lack of knowledge in the sector, Godrej saw an opportunity in me and supported me in my aspirations, for which I remain thankful to this day.
Karolina Product Development Manager
My journey in the cosmetics industry started with a very spontaneous application for the BSc (Hons) degree in Cosmetic Science at London College of Fashion. There I learned skills such as research and development, product manufacturing, marketing, technical sales, product testing, quality assurance, logistics, regulation and legislation.
Since graduating I’ve had the opportunity to develop products for some very exciting brands. Two years ago I decided to leave my lab coat behind, move down to London and join Godrej as Product Development Manager. What I love about this role is the opportunities and challenges it brings on a day-to-day basis. Here I am not only responsible for overlooking formulation development but packaging, project management and technology sourcing.
The best part of my job? Walking into store and seeing the product I developed on the shelf!
Sarah PA to the Directors
I joined the business in 2004 as Office Manager and was promoted to PA to the Directors in 2008. I still cannot believe that I have been here for so many years and I think this is due to the company constantly evolving and my role being extremely diverse.
Godrej genuinely cares about its people and the community we operate in. We try to make a difference to our community and environment through our Good & Green initiative, that I am proudly very involved in, which includes organising many charitable events. In recent years we have climbed Snowdon & Ben Nevis, walked the gruelling 50kmThames Path Challenge and partaken in numerous charity runs, bakes and sales, raising thousands of pounds for various charities.
Here at Godrej I feel part of an amazing, diverse, hard-working, fun loving family and truly wouldn’t change a thing!
