“No idea is a bad idea.”
Why did you apply to work for us?
I was looking for a new challenge in my career and having previously worked for slower paced retailers. I thought it was an exciting opportunity to work in an e-commerce buying role, and with boohoo being a market-leader it was the perfect opportunity to challenge myself.
What’s the best thing about working for us?
I love the autonomy that comes with my role, we can really push the boundaries with product, going after new trends and trying new categories. It’s also a really friendly team, my colleagues are great to work with.
How would you describe the culture?
I work on the Oasis brand and it is a very close-knit team. We’re very open and no idea is a bad idea. We work at a fast pace, agility is key. Hard work is definitely rewarded at boohoo – they put on some fabulous parties!
What do you get up to in your role?
Day-to-day I work closely with the Designer on my departments, bouncing new ideas off each other. I am in constant contact with our suppliers, negotiating with them - managing current orders and trying to react quickly to newness. It is so creative and product focused, every day is different. The variety and braveness to try new things is what I love the most and makes it different to where I have worked previously.
How has your career developed since you’ve worked here?
After a year in my role managing the jersey department I was promoted to Senior Buyer also managing the knitwear category. I am now working with two teams and different product areas which is pushing my development and keeps me motivated.
What’s been your biggest achievement/proudest moment so far?
Every day is so different and I’m super proud of everything we have achieved over the last year-and-a-half – joining the Oasis team working on the re-launch, constantly learning new lessons, pushing boundaries and evolving the brand.
What makes someone successful here?
Being passionate and driven, working as a team, and being brave with decision-making.
What do you think makes us unique as an employer?
There are lots of opportunities and progression throughout all levels, you are given the freedom and autonomy to drive your department. And, the business is centred around it’s people.
