“You feel valued as an employee and made to feel like your work matters.”
Why did you apply to work for us?
I came to a point in my previous job where I wanted a new, exciting and challenging role. When I settled on moving to Manchester, boohoo was the obvious choice to provide this. I had expectations from friends who had worked here previously, but the reality far exceeded these!
What’s the best thing about working for us?
The people are what makes the job worthwhile. Everyone is working with each other in the same direction and the ability to get stuff done, no matter the size of the task, is what makes this company special.
How would you describe the culture?
We describe ourselves as a family and it really does feel like that. Everyone is super friendly and on the same journey with the business. The benefits and social opportunities are nothing like I’ve experienced in previous jobs.
What do you get up to in your role? What makes it different compared with other similar roles you’ve had?
My role involves supporting the sourcing, compliance, and sustainability teams by providing data to help with business decisions. The difference in this role is you can really see the change implemented in the business by decisions based on our analysis and data. It is also very satisfying to know that I am part of the team working towards a more sustainable and environmentally friendly company.
How has your career developed since you’ve worked here?
I made an internal move after two years which was supported by my new and old manager and HR made the move really easy. There is plenty of opportunity to move around into roles that better suit your career.
What’s been your biggest achievement/proudest moment so far?
My biggest achievement has been the involvement with the on-boarding of new brands. We work to very tight deadlines to get reporting and analysis to the new brands from the day they go live. It is a manic few weeks but it is rewarding to see them flourish as part of the boohoo family!
What makes someone successful here?
I think success at boohoo comes from resilience. It can be a fast paced, challenging environment, but if you can show you’re up to the challenge, you will earn a lot of respect and go far.
What do you think makes us unique as an employer?
boohoo is a very modern, forward-thinking company. Every change that is made helps to drive the business in a forward direction, be it from a HQ makeover to a new brand acquisition. You feel valued as an employee and made to feel like your work matters.
