Butcher at Smithfield Meat Market

“I moved to London about four years ago from Wolverhampton for a better career.

It was a hard start but now I’m a qualified butcher at the meat market in Smithfield. I couldn’t ask for a better job. It’s fun and full of friendly people who will always help you out if you need it; I always say “there is no place like the market!”

London is what you make it. There are loads of opportunities to be anything you want. I used to be a metal polisher and never thought I’d end up being a professional butcher!

I’d like to thank the City of London and my employer for the head start they have given me in my life.”
