“Everyone is so friendly and approachable.”
Why did you apply to work for us?
Since graduating from Uni, I found it really difficult to apply to photography and fashion photography jobs without having prior experience working in the industry, so the Graduate Photographer and Retoucher position that I found on the PLT careers website was perfect for me. This three month, fixed term position stood out to me from all I had seen. I was able to gain valuable experience at one of the biggest fashion companies in the world, where there was chance for me to work alongside other creatives, grow my portfolio and body of work and stay on for a permanent contract, which is what I ended up doing this year.
What’s the best thing about working for us?
The talented and creative people I have met and work alongside and the amazing opportunities I am given to grow as a photographer and person.
How would you describe the culture?
Extremely positive and fun! Everyone is so friendly and approachable and working for PLT is definitely a ‘work hard, play hard’ environment.
What do you get up to in your role?
In my role I photograph and retouch the photographs of the models and clothes that you see on the PLT website. I have had the chance to work alongside amazing creatives, photographers, stylists and videographers. I have been working for PLT for five months now and have already had the opportunity to photograph and work on bigger photoshoots for the ‘Galentines’ launch that can be seen on the website and social media platforms.
How has your career developed since you’ve worked here?
I initially applied for the Graduate Photographer and Retoucher role which was a fixed term contract of three months. Within these three months I learnt so many valuable skills and experienced what it is like to work as a photographer in the fast fashion industry. I was given the opportunity to be promoted to a permanent role where I am now a Junior Photographer and Retoucher. It is amazing to be a permanent member of the PLT studio team and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for my career here.
What’s been your biggest achievement/proudest moment so far?
Being given the promotion from a Graduate to a Junior. Also being able to work on a bigger photoshoot for the Galentines launch and have my photographs shown on the PLT website and across social media.
What makes someone successful here?
If you are a person that is hardworking, creative, sociable, always coming up with new and fresh ideas and works well in groups of creatives then you will be a perfect fit to work at PLT.
What do you think makes us unique as an employer?
At PLT, it doesn’t feel like your usual nine-five job. There is such a positive and welcoming energy all the time and it is exciting to work with such an amazing company. I absolutely love my job and the opportunities I am given to grow as a photographer and person. There is never a boring day working for PLT.
