Elke Cake

Elke Cake

This is not just any cake. This is an Elke cake.

A few months ago, one of my managers left to move back to Australia. When I first joined the NSPCC she was the head of my little team, and then when we had an internal restructure she became the head of my new, bigger team. She was a brilliant person to know. Something I love about my job is how much everyone cares, and she was the perfect example of this – she wanted to do a good job not for her own satisfaction or ego, but because she knew that what we were doing was good and important and she wanted to make sure, therefore, that we did it right.
