Why did you apply to work for us?
I have been a regular customer for a long time and I’m a big fan of the brands. The story behind the Group is inspiring and it is an exciting prospect to work with such a rapidly growing, Manchester-born business like boohoo. The staff discount isn’t too bad either!
What’s the best thing about working for us?
I feel very privileged as I get to work with everyone in the business and work in one of the most varied and exciting roles. No two days are ever the same. I have to be dynamic, understanding, have good communication skills and in return, I get to truly make a difference to the lives of my colleagues and the way we operate as a business.
How would you describe the culture?
The culture at boohoo is very inclusive. We are encouraged to be creative with everything we do. The ethos is fashionable, youthful and caring, which creates a very diverse, vibrant work environment.
What do you get up to in your role? What makes it different compared with other similar roles you’ve had?
Everything! I get to look at all aspects of the business, usually the most interesting parts. My role is to make everything run smoothly and to make people’s jobs easier. I can truly make a difference in this role, a feeling I did not obtain from my previous role.
How has your career developed since you’ve worked here?
Due to the rapid expansion of the business, there are lots of opportunities for progression. I’m still fairly new to the boohoo family but excited to see where this company can go.
What’s been your biggest achievement/proudest moment so far?
Implementing positive changes in the business to ensure it runs as smoothly as possible!
What makes someone successful here?
Aside from all the obvious qualities like hard work and determination, a willingness to adapt to a fast-paced, ever-changing industry and an open-minded approach to accepting inevitable change.
What do you think makes us unique as an employer?
The boohoo family encourages everyone to be creative and inspires confidence in the workforce. This is reflected on our websites and our social media, but really it shines from within. boohoo truly is a company that puts employees first, and in return it has a passionate, devoted workforce who strive for the success we are enjoying. We are investing heavily in automation and think ahead of the game. We are kitted out with everything needed to accomplish our targets. The offices are incredible with gyms, subsidised canteens, smoothie bars and coffee shops. There aren’t many businesses with such a focus on staff wellbeing and happiness.
