“I have never worked somewhere where the people are so nice, friendly and approachable.”
Why did you apply to work for us?
An ex-colleague got a job with boohoo and was raving about how much fun and fast paced it was. An opportunity came up in finance and I contacted him straight away (I was e-stalking the career website).
What’s the best thing about working for us?
The people! I have never worked somewhere where the people are so nice, friendly, and approachable. It is also not hierarchical at all. The senior guys are down to earth.
How would you describe the culture?
Friendly, fast paced, hardworking, collaborative.
What do you get up to in your role? What makes it different compared with other similar roles you’ve had?
I basically talk anything finance with IT, HR and e-commerce. I am their contact for anything finance related.
I make sure that decisions made are aligned to the boohoo strategy.
How has your career developed since you’ve worked here?
I’ve only been here six weeks, but my observation is that there is scope to grow. A few people in the finance teams have been promoted recently which is great to see as a new starter because it shows if I work hard there will be opportunities for me to grow.
What’s been your biggest achievement/proudest moment so far?
Again, only six weeks in, but on my very first day I got given a contract proposal to review and make a recommendation on whether to accept or not.
It took me a while to get my head around it, but I was given the space I needed, and the team were so friendly and helpful and didn’t make me feel like I asked any stupid questions (even though I did).
What makes someone successful here?
Being a hard worker and being proactive.
What do you think makes us unique as an employer?
The culture. The friendly down to earth, non-hierarchical culture makes boohoo unique. It’s a very fun place to work.
Describe working here in 3 words.
