I wanted to join a brand where I could develop products that are unique as well as beautiful. Prior to working at Cath Kidston I have 7 years of Kids buying experience and I love how much fun/personality the Cath Kids range has to offer.
Every day is different and that is what I love about my job. Although I work in an office environment, I am very rarely at my desk for long. I have the perfect balance of being creative, working at my computer and having meetings to discuss the range.
The people, even though the role is fast paced and you need to work on several seasons at once, the team of people around me really make the role.
I developed a woven baby fashion range which was a new introduction into the collection, so far it has been really successful and seeing pictures of happy customers is lovely.
The office is just as you’d imagine; there is patterned wallpaper, there are great creative spaces and everyone is lovely. There is always something fun going on like Cake Friday or a quiz night.
Kenny our CEO chats to everybody the same way, whether you are an intern or the finance director and really sets the tone for the rest of the business. It is very inclusive and you feel that as an employee you are a valued member of the company.
Go and visit stores and speak to the store staff, observe our customers and see what they think. I would also say be yourself in the interview.
