Mikhail Novikov

Operations Manager, Johnstone's Food Service

I graduated from the Universities of York and Manchester with a BSc in Mathematics and Finance, and an MSc in Economics. I joined a graduate scheme for a manufacturer of frozen ready meals before making the step to Finsbury in November 2019.

As an Operations Manager I look after production across three shifts and in my time here have taken on the warehouse operation and hygiene function. Finsbury has provided me with opportunities to develop my career through the Developing Leaders Program (ILM Level 5) and through taking on increased responsibilities.

I have been working on a number of group-wide initiatives and my aspiration is to progress to an Operations Controller position and ultimately to a Site Lead role in the future.
