“As a growing brand under boohoo, you really see the fruits of your labour as well as the growth taking place in real time.”
Why did you apply to work for us?
Because I’ve grown up on boohoo and so the opportunity to now work for a brand I know and love whilst embarking on this journey completely new to the brand through Debenhams was a welcome challenge.
What’s the best thing about working for us?
As a growing brand under boohoo, you really see the fruits of your labour as well as the growth taking place in real time. I won’t pretend the perks aren’t also amazing…
How would you describe the culture?
A family. People here actually care – which could feel strange at first depending on where you’re coming from but all the teams work (and play) seamlessly together.
What do you get up to in your role? What makes it different compared with other similar roles you’ve had?
My background is in e-commerce and so all of my roles have been largely similar. This role consists of absolute site management ranging from designing and updating content pages across the site, setting up promotions to effectively trading in line with the trading calendar whilst testing alongside our developers on bettering the overall functionality of the site. Compared to my previous roles, this role has offered me a larger sense of ownership as well as the opportunity to take part in key projects from concept to completion.
How has your career developed since you’ve worked here? E.g. development opportunities, role changes?
As a ‘founding member’ of Debenhams online under the boohoo brand, I’ve had the pleasure of being part of all the key projects on site. It has been amazing to head some of these projects whilst overseeing the development of the junior members of the team.
What’s been your biggest achievement/proudest moment so far?
There have been too many to count! But one that stands out for me would be successfully trading our first ever Black Friday!
What makes someone successful here?
Getting absolutely stuck in! Don’t be afraid to make mistakes; proactivity and an eagerness to learn is always recognised and rewarded.
What do you think makes us unique as an employer?
The level of transparency offered to each and every single brand under boohoo is truly encouraging and steps are constantly taken to show each employee that they are valued.
Describe working here in 3 words.
Crazy, challenging and fun.
