“I love how supportive and encouraging our leadership team are.”
Why did you apply to work for us?
I was looking for a new challenge following completion of my CIPD studies and boohoo opened a site in Wellingborough. Upon researching the boohoo values and the growth plan I jumped at the chance as soon as an opportunity became available.
What’s the best thing about working for us?
Not only is the company growth a really great opportunity, having experienced the culture over the past ten months I love how supportive and encouraging our leadership team are, it is contagious and makes you want to make others feel supported in the same way.
How would you describe the culture?
It has continuous development at its core, there are so many incentives that are being implemented to improve our ways of working, and it is challenging and fun at the same time. My direct team is incredible and the site and supporting teams make coming to work exciting.
What do you get up to in your role? What makes it different compared with other similar roles you’ve had?
HR in general is the same wherever you are, to ensure that the company and its colleagues are protected in line with policy and legislation, the difference at boohoo is that we get the opportunity to have an input on what the future looks like; we have a voice to engage and support our colleagues in ways I would not have been able to before.
How has your career developed since you’ve worked here?
I joined boohoo as a HR Advisor at our start-up UK3 site in February building on my start-up experience and driving process, knowing that as the business grew I could develop my career. However, I didn’t realise how quickly that would happen. Only four weeks later I was given the opportunity to transfer to our new site UK4 in Crick to start up again as HR Manager, it has been an incredible ten months with the business, and I look forward to what’s next.
What’s been your biggest achievement/proudest moment so far?
Joining the team at UK4 and having the support and trust of my manager to get us where we are today.
What makes someone successful here?
Being open to new experiences and jumping in with both feet. With all the projects going on and improved processes to implement there is plenty to develop your career.
What do you think makes us unique as an employer?
Creating great teams and having fun is a common theme throughout the business. Employee engagement makes a great place to work, and I am lucky enough to be involved in making it happen.
