“I’m proud to be part of such a supportive and high performing team.”
Why did you apply to work for us?
I actually joined the business on a temporary contract in February 2021 through an agency. I pestered to join as a permanent employee as I loved everything about the company, the people, the role, the culture. I officially joined the boohoo group in May 2021 and haven’t looked back since!
What’s the best thing about working for us?
100% would say the people - boohoo is definitely the most collaborative and supportive business I have worked in. I think must say this every time someone asks, but I’m proud to be part of such a supportive and high performing team.
The benefits are also an added bonus!
How would you describe the culture?
I think it’s best to describe the culture in 3 words.
Friendly - Everyone I’ve met across the business has been warm, sociable and engaging. Everyone works to support each other with teams, departments and across the business.
Challenging - As employees we are encouraged to explore our full potential/skill sets. It’s a work hard, play hard environment. If you are adaptable and willing to challenge yourself, you are likely to grow through the job experience.
Motivating/engaging - The company has such an exciting and enriching environment. The support and engagement across teams helps us as employee’s feel compelled to work hard and drives us reach our full potential.
If you are after an adaptable, fast-paced environment which challenges you on the day-to-day, this is the company for you.
What do you get up to in your role? What makes it different compared with other similar roles you’ve had?
No two days are the same. Within my role I provide administrative assistance to the Talent Team, such as crafting of job postings, maintaining databases with candidate information, screening/shortlisting/sourcing candidates, coordinating interviews, preparing job offers and contracts, assisting the new hire on-boarding and general ad-hoc duties.
Ultimately I help keep our hiring process smooth, and help to ensure we recruit and retain high-performing employees.
How has your career developed since you’ve worked here?
boohoo recognises your hard work and rewards you for it. I think without the support and encouragement from my team and the wider company, my career would not have developed half as much as it has. Having been made redundant at a previous company during lockdown, my confidence had been knocked massively. Since joining boohoo, my team has helped grow my confidence, helped with supporting my own motivation and understanding my full potential within the role, plus working for such a fun and ever-changing company has further helped develop my role, as it’s kept every day exciting and never the same. Having joined on a permanent basis in May 2021, I have since been promoted up a level in December 2021 - 6 months after joining.
What’s been your biggest achievement/proudest moment so far?
I would say my proudest moment is my promotion in December. I have never worked for such a supportive and rewarding company and to be promoted 6 months after joining is definitely my biggest achievement so far.
What makes someone successful here?
I think simply you need to believe in yourself and your ability to be successful in your job. With this comes confidence, which allows you to develop your potential and the insight to recognise opportunities for advancement. I’ve said this hundreds of times but boohoo recognises your hard work and willingness and rewards you for it.
What do you think makes us unique as an employer?
I’ve found previously working for large companies, you often feel like just another employee. For such a large company and a leading fashion brand, at boohoo you always feel involved in its day-to-day running, you never feel lost within the company and your ideas are heard regardless of the department. Again the support across the teams for the size of the company, everyone goes above and beyond to support, which in turn has helped make boohoo what it is today.
