Emma Hamilton

The Larder West Lothian

The Larder’s Rising Star is our Director of Operations and People, Emma Hamilton. Emma has experienced significant challenges throughout her life. As a teen, she was placed in foster care following periods of broken family relationships, and at the young age of 18 became a single parent to one of her daughters. Despite these challenges, Emma always knew the value of working hard and started in working hospitality from the young age of 14. In only five years with The Larder, Emma went from Social Media and Administration Assistant, was promoted to Office Manager, retitled to Business Manager, and today, at 29, has taken on a new post of Director of Operations and People. Emma is living proof that given the right conditions and support, everyone can change the direction in their life, to reach their full potential. She is considered by not only her team, her manager, the Board, but also all partners and supporters that come across her, as a key part of the success of The Larder. Emma is a Rising Star, not only in The Larder but also within the world and we are excited to see what the future brings for her.
