I started eight years ago as a part-time Sales Assistant while at university, before becoming full-time. Working alongside a long-serving team inspired me to learn more about the business. I took on more responsibility wherever possible and showed I was willing to learn. As a result, I was fast-tracked through our Retail Academy programmes.

I’ve demonstrated my organisation and people skills, and been vocal about my desire to progress. This has led to a secondment – and the chance to manage a store. I love the fact that I’ve been able to progress so quickly and I’m grateful for all the support I’ve had. With new initiatives being rolled out all the time, I’m free to learn and evolve.
