A.F. Blakemore has enhanced its social media presence with a new Instagram profile to showcase working life at the business.

Launched specially to support A.F. Blakemore’s ongoing recruitment campaigns, the account aims to promote the company's culture and values to prospective employees. 

The profile will feature posts of colleagues, working life and events across the business. You can find and follow the profile by searching for @afblife on Instagram.

The new account is being managed by Donna Cooper, who is currently supporting the business with recruitment.  

Donna explained: “This new Instagram account is a great opportunity to inspire the next generation of recruits to the business.

“We are really keen to promote what goes on at the company behind the scenes, not just at our customer-facing sites, so we are appealing to all colleagues to get involved and contribute content. Please give us a follow!”  

If you have any photos or video content that could be considered for the account, please email Donna Cooper at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

As a guide, the business is on the lookout for photos and videos of the following: 

  • Store/depot events and fun days
  • Community volunteering and fundraising activities
  • Colleague awards and achievements
  • Learning and development opportunities
  • External events such as tradeshows
  • Colleague social events

Please make sure that any colleagues featured in photos submitted have given consent for their images to be used externally. Content might also be shared on other AFB social media accounts and online platforms.
