Why did you join Cath Kidston?

I joined Cath Kidston as I wanted to be involved in growing the brand internationally as I could see the brand was loved by the customer globally.

What do you get up to on a typical day?

I arrive at the regional office in Hong Kong with a coffee in hand. The first thing I do is check my emails as working with the UK I will receive emails overnight due to the time difference. From there on each day can be very varied from being in the office talking to our franchise partners and engaged in internal/ external meetings to being in a market visiting our stores discussing business opportunities.

What do you love most about working here?

I love that I get to work across so many diverse international markets and cultures. I am lucky that I get to travel internationally to countries and cities that I might otherwise never visit and fulfil my passion for travel.

What’s been your biggest achievement/proudest moment so far?

My biggest achievement is not only managing the franchise business in APAC but being involved in the business development globally.

What is it really like to work here?

It is a fun and creative environment to work in both here in Hong Kong and London. You are encouraged to have ideas and think outside the box.

What do you think makes Cath Kidston unique as an employer?

Everyone is incredibly friendly and supportive which is created by the senior management and filtered throughout the business.

What piece of advice would you give to someone who was thinking of applying to work for us?

If you are looking for a company where you can grow within and develop your career whilst having fun then come join the Cath Kidston family.
