“The best thing about working for boohoo is the fact that anything is possible.”
Why did you apply to work for us?
I didn’t haha – I got transferred from Arcadia when boohoo bought Dorothy Perkins out. However I am really enjoying working under boohoo! There is a lot of freedom when it comes to buying with their test and repeat business model.
What do you get up to in your role?
Day to day I am always speaking to suppliers trying to find the right product at the right price, we work very closely with our merch team to ensure we are keeping to our budgets eeek. We have fit sessions to attend twice a week to ensure everything looks great for our customer. The best thing about this job is that no day is ever the same!

Definitely prepare as much you can, it definitely shows through when you have not prepared for an interview. Always think outside the box too! You want the interviewer to remember you.
Have you been offered any training, networking, workshops etc (internal or external)?
There is lots of training available at boohoo, some mandatory and some optional which is great as you can then tailor the training to what it is you want to improve on. For myself that is definitely Excel so I need to book onto one of those sessions soon!
