“I feel very grateful to work with such a brilliant, supportive team who are always encouraging each other to try new things and maximise our potential.”
Why did you apply to work for us?
I knew that boohoo was growing rapidly, becoming 13 brands as of last year when we acquired Debenhams. I wanted a new role that provided a new challenge with greater responsibility and the opportunity to progress, which boohoo definitely offers!
What is the best thing about working for us?
I think it has to be the people. I feel very grateful to work with such a brilliant, supportive team who are always encouraging each other to try new things and maximise our potential. There is so much room to grow, learn and develop. Also the fact that there is never two days that are the same! It is definitely all part of the excitement of working for boohoo; you never know what is around the corner!
How would you describe the culture?
Everyone always uses the phrase ‘fast-paced’ to describe the culture here, but I think this sums it up perfectly! The fast-paced environment keeps things exciting and provides plenty of opportunity to grow. The culture of boohoo is like nowhere else I have ever worked and it is hard to describe until you are part of it, but it really does feel like a family, a company that really values its people.
What do you get up to in your role? What makes it different compared with other similar roles you’ve had?
I support the Talent team with recruitment across all brands, Manchester and London based. I proactively manage the candidates who want to join our boohoo family, from the point of advertising a new role right up until the offer stage. This consists of sifting through CVs, liaising with hiring managers and candidates to arrange interviews, preparing and issuing new starter paperwork and conducting right-to-work checks. I have also been involved in a branding piece for LinkedIn, improving the content in order to attract the right talent and accurately shows off what we offer here at boohoo!
How has your career developed since you’ve worked here?
When I first started my role at boohoo six months ago, I assisted with the recruitment of our Tech roles. After being here around three months, I started to support another one of our Talent Partners with the recruitment of our marketing and studio roles. This has broadened my knowledge massively and provided me with a well-rounded view of the roles we have to offer.
What has been your biggest achievement/proudest moment so far?
I think just following on from my above answer! The amount I have learnt in such a short period working here. Since working across multiple departments, brands and locations my understanding and knowledge of the different roles I support on has grown massively!
What makes someone successful here?
I think with boohoo the key is that you get out what you put in. There is a vast amount of opportunity to grow with the business if you put in the work and take advantage of what the company has to offer. Everyone is super friendly and happy to help so I think it is important to utilise those around you!
What do you think makes us unique as an employer?
Even in a business of this immense scale boohoo always finds a way to make each individual feel like a valued member. They will always ensure you are listened to and made to feel appreciated.
Describe working here in three words.
Innovative, collaborative and busy!
