“boohoo is an incredibly collaborative, passionate and supportive business.”
Why did you apply to work for us?
I’d met Tom (our General Counsel) previously and he’d sold me the dream. Therefore it was a no-brainer when I had the opportunity to come on board.
What’s the best thing about working for us?
I’d probably say the opportunities, people and parties. Although in what order? I can’t say.
How would you describe the culture?
Very multi-faceted. It’s fast-paced, exciting, very entrepreneurial but also built on a collaborative foundation.
What do you get up to in your role? What makes it different compared with other similar roles you’ve had?
I initially worked as a solicitor in a law firm. I then joined another company in-house before joining boohoo.
My experience at boohoo has been vastly different to anywhere else I’ve ever worked. Although it can be challenging and fast-paced, it’s also extremely enjoyable and rewarding.
I’ve found that as an in-house lawyer at boohoo you are heavily involved and can really play a prominent role in fulfilling the business’ ambitions. Particularly in the legal team where we see ourselves as enablers, not blockers!
How has your career developed since you’ve worked here?
The business is always evolving and everyone plays a key part in it doing so. This has been hugely beneficial for me in terms of facing and overcoming a number of different scenarios and challenges, all of which have played a big part in my progress to become Senior Legal Counsel.
What’s been your biggest achievement/proudest moment so far?
Definitely my involvement in the Group's acquisitions. When I joined the company we had four brands, now we have 13 and I’ve played (or so I like to think!) an important role in the acquisition of each one.
What makes someone successful here?
We are a brand orientated business so it’s important to be creative.
Lawyers are not well-known for being creative but even in our roles at boohoo we’ve got to think creatively in how we approach matters. If you are open to that mindset, no matter what your role is, you’ll succeed.
What do you think makes us unique as an employer?
boohoo is an incredibly collaborative, passionate and supportive business. We aim and often achieve what initially seems impossible.
