“We have so much opportunity here to be as creative as we like which for a designer is a dream.”
Why did you apply to work for us?
I previously worked for Warehouse and thought it would be exciting to be part of a brand I loved again and to have the opportunity to be part of the new rebranding.
What’s the best thing about working for us?
The creativity! We have so much opportunity here to be as creative as we like which for a designer is a dream.
How would you describe the culture?
Fast-paced and exciting. Things change on a daily basis here making it never a boring place to work! We also all work very closely together; there isn’t a presence of hierarchy on the team so everyone feels heard and respected.
What do you get up to in your role? What makes it different compared with other similar roles you’ve had?
I spend a lot of my day designing and developing the range. This includes a lot of initial research, fabric sourcing, lots of sketching, usually by hand or on the computer, which I then prepare into detailed specification packs that I send out to factories. Once I receive my samples I then work closely with my buying and technical team, fitting the garment and presenting them to management, ensuring we deliver a successful range. I also manage curating our Trend edits on the website, ensuring that our vision and trends on design are reflected to the customer on site – this is something new in my role which I’ve had the opportunity to take on.
How has your career developed since you’ve worked here?
Yes, since working here I have been given the opportunity to take on more responsibilities including being a line manager.
What’s been your biggest achievement/proudest moment so far?
Seeing some of my designs on my favourite influencers has to be a proud moment! Also seeing the great reaction, we have had since rebranding Warehouse has been really exciting.
What makes someone successful here?
Hard work, dedication and defiantly enthusiasm!
What do you think makes us unique as an employer?
boohoo sees the opportunity in growth and is happy to invest in what it takes to grow successful businesses which is very unique in the current industry climate.
