Red Mist always look after their employees and invests heavily in staff training. I love working for them because they believe in the value of teamwork and I’m truly happy to be part of the work family with a support network that gives me confidence in both my abilities and what we can achieve together as a company.

I absolutely love working for Red Mist Leisure. They’re by far one of the most understanding companies I’ve worked for, which as a mum it’s important to have a flexible working arrangement. Being a very family friendly company, you’re never made to feel bad about your home commitments which is ideal for creating that work/life balance.

I’ve always felt extremely valued and driven to succeed at Red Mist Leisure, this is due to the level of acknowledgement my contributions, no matter how significant, have always been given. As the company has grown I have been offered opportunities to progress to new roles & undertake further training.
