About Us

Having started in 2006 with just three team members, we've evolved into a multi-brand, ecommerce giant with offices worldwide and a passionate team of over 4,000. In the past year alone, we've achieved remarkable milestones including automating our Sheffield distribution centre, launching our US warehouse, and initiating our tech re-platforming.

In Tech, we’re proud to support every function. We’re a digital-first company that is totally cloud native. We embrace change and future-proof the business, delivering critical customer facing and internal stakeholder facing systems. Everything from colleague tech to frontend websites and apps, buying and merchandising tooling, and all that’s in-between, we take care of it. Our ideas support and drive the Group’s agenda.
