“It’s very ‘work hard, play hard’ and I love that.”

Our reactiveness to trends, events and competitors. I work closely with other departments and the collaborative effort is hugely evident in our success. Working within trade we work at a fast pace and it’s the adrenaline that allows me to thrive here.
How would you describe the culture?
It’s very ‘work hard, play hard’ and I love that. There are so many perks in the office to make our time here enjoyable and that allows us to focus on our work. The open plan office creates a community feel across all departments and you will quickly get to know everyone’s face. Recognition is also hugely evident for group and individual efforts.
What do you get up to in your role?
I implement the day-to-day activity across the boohooMAN sites and apps, whether that be promotions, onsite events, new capsule launches, competitions, creating content pages; the list is endless. I use analytics to monitor performance, enhance our customer journey, increase conversion and develop new functionalities across our trading platforms.
How has your career developed since you’ve worked here?
I began my role supporting the team with launches and scheduling promotional activity across site and app. Fast forward a year and I now have two Black Fridays under my belt, I now take lead with ensuring all activity goes live correctly and to deadline across our six apps, I train new colleagues, have gained strong relationships across departments and I am trusted with generating fresh ideas for new trading developments. I am incredibly excited to see how my career here will progress.
What’s been your biggest achievement/proudest moment so far?
My biggest achievement to date has to be taking ownership of our six apps during Black Friday; our busiest trading period of the year.
