“Everyone is very friendly and helpful and always up for a chat.”
Why did you apply to work for us?
I was looking for an analyst job but didn’t want to be stuck in the boring corporate office life, I thought working for a ‘fun’ and ‘young’ brand might be different (luckily I was right).
What’s the best thing about working for us?
The people. Everyone is very friendly and helpful and always up for a chat.
How would you describe the culture?
As cringe as it sounds, I’d say ‘work hard but play harder’. PLT is great for organising fun activities and perks that make all the hard work worth it. I still remember how crazy they went with the Halloween party…
What do you get up to in your role? What makes it different compared with other similar roles you’ve had
My job is mainly to keep an eye on what our competitors are doing and how PLT matches up to them. I’d say the standout point for my role is the support I get from my immediate team, in particular my Manager (shout out, Anike!). Definitely makes the whole role less stressful.
How has your career developed since you’ve worked here?
From a technical point of view I’ve had a lot of exposure to different things that I’d never seen before, so it was always a learning process from day one and even now almost a year later!
What’s been your biggest achievement/proudest moment so far?
A bit of a nerdy one, but I’d say the improvement in my coding work (having no previous experience) and the improvement in my dashboard building. As boring as it sounds, I’ve loved getting stuck in with these technical bits.
What makes someone successful here?
I’d say the biggest thing I’ve noticed so far is the fact that things work best when you collaborate, so not being afraid to ask for help is definitely the biggest thing for me. Communication is key.
What do you think makes us unique as an employer?
I’ve never experienced a workplace that embraces the fun side of work as much as PLT. From the little appreciation gifts we get given to the big PLT style parties, you guys definitely know how to make work a little less boring.
