    I feel like the culture is all about working hard and having fun whilst you do it!

  • What do you get up to in your role? What makes it different compared with other similar roles you’ve had?

    Unlike other assistant roles I get to be involved in all aspects of buying and the business. At Karen Millen/boohoo I am also lucky enough to be able to travel to see suppliers and see new places. I love working on the product development side of things and then all the processes following on to ensure that quality product is delivered effectively and efficiently. Each day I am always doing something a little bit different which keeps things exciting.

  • How has your career developed since you’ve worked here?

    I started as a Buying Admin Assistant when Karen Millen was still new to boohoo and we had such a small team. I got to help out on all departments before settling on knitwear. After 16 months I was promoted to Assistant Buyer on Soft Wovens which has been such an exciting transition, to learn not only a new role but about different kinds of products too.

  • What’s been your biggest achievement/proudest moment so far?

    Being voted by my peers as the buying representative on the Junior Leadership Team. Receiving the promotion to Assistant Buyer.

  • What makes someone successful here?

    I think being able to work as part of a team is imperative to success at boohoo. Communication is key and actively encouraged, working in such a fast-paced environment it is important to be adaptable.
