Kerry

Why did you join Cath Kidston?

To be part of a successful and established Global brand which had further potential to expand into new territories. When I joined four years ago we were only represented in five countries exclusively in Asia, compared with today where we are in 13 countries, including the Middle East and a plan to expand into another three countries by the end of 2016.

What do you get up to on a typical day?

There is no typical day in the world of International Merchandising, every day is different. In summary my team and I work with our international partners and the U.K. Head Office to ensure we collectively develop a global range, which is ordered and delivered to our three international warehouses to enable our international stores to successfully represent our brand around the world.

What do you love most about working here?

The people!! Cath Kidston employees are passionate, friendly and supportive.

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

Working as part of a bigger team that have grown our international store portfolio from X stores in 2010 to X stores today!

What is it really like to work here?

Challenging but rewarding, working in an environment where we work towards the common goal of brightening up people's day, all around the world.

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

The brand itself is unique, with a very unique and on brand, head office which always wows when we have visitors. Also working for Cath Kidston, you work in a truly global, multichannel business and get the experience of working for 4 brands in one, a Home, Kids, Bag and Accessories and Fashion brand!!
