Published 15 November 2019

CODE’s Employee of the Month for November is Mesha Campbell, waitress at Zelman Meats

When did you realise you wanted to work in hospitality? 

I realised I wanted to work in hospitality seven years ago when I was 18. I couldn’t find a college course I was passionate about but refused to leave college with nothing so choose to do a Level 2 & 3 Diploma in Hospitality and loved it.

Why did you want to work at Zelman Meats? 

First of all, it was in a location I love to work in (Soho). I love the buzz the area has and the secret locations you can discover, so that got me excited. And because the menu was simple I knew that meant there’s room to add extras to people’s plate e.g my personality, my humour and an experience.

Who or what inspires you? 

Literally everyday people. What inspires me? Touching lives in a positive way, taking some of the weight from each person I meet, we all seem to carry personal baggage around on a daily basis, I love just letting someone know: “Hey, I’m happy to take that weight off your shoulders, would you like it hang up or in put it in the office?”

Do you have a hidden talent? 

Singing & dancing

What is your desert island dish? 

Grilled sea bass & salad with Jamaican rum punch 🔥

Where would you like to be in five years’ time? 

In five years I would like to be a team leader/head of a department that specialises in making every single individual they come across not feel alone and treated with integrity in whatever circumstance they’re facing.

Where do you enjoy going out to eat and drink?

Wherever I’m working baby! Cornershop in Shoreditch is alright though.

If you have a colleague going above and beyond their call of duty, send your nomination to [email protected].
