I also worked for a company called Free Spirit, an outdoor clothing store in Meadowhall. It sold all the snowboard brands I loved, walking stuff, biking stuff, climbing stuff and I got a hefty discount too. I worked for the company, in it’s various guises for years and years, I started with them at 16, working one day a week, mostly for the free clothing, until I went on my first season and I finished my last job with them at 23 after I’d moved to the Leeds store during uni. At one point, in the second year of uni 3 of my housemates, my then boyfriend and 3 of my other close friend all worked there – pulling a sickie was always easy as someone would always cover for you!
Not bad for my first jobs, hu?
