Why did you join Cath Kidston?

Because I’m a big fan of the brand. When I had my interview, the atmosphere in Head Office and my interviewers just made me want to work here even more!

What do you get up to on a typical day?

Every day is very varied (and busy), but typically I will be reviewing eComm performance and using this learning to adjust our trading plan for the coming weeks/months so that we can be proactive rather than reactive. My role is great because I am able to find commercial opportunities and work with my team to apply them creatively.

What do you love most about working here?

The best thing about working for Cath Kidston is the brand itself and how everyone who works here lives and breathes its core values. Our way of working has a true family-feel; it’s an extremely friendly, honest and fun environment!

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

My biggest achievement is launching Cath Kidston’s first ever online gift wrap service. Our brand is synonymous with gifting so launching this service was a big deal for us!

What is it really like to work here?

I love coming to work every day, I think that says it all!

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

It’s definitely the core values that have been created and instilled as a way of working, and the effort that goes into ensuring they are maintained is really credible. On top of this, we are well rewarded with monthly ‘cake day’ to celebrate all birthdays, delicious subsidised lunches in Cath’s Café, annual parties, monthly social events, fortnightly beauty treatments in the office, 50% discount, health insurance, a pension….the list goes on and on!

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

Make sure you have a good understanding of the brand, research the role you’re applying for!

A little bit more about you

What’s your favourite Cath Kidston print?

This is SO hard because the prints just get better and better every season, but if I have to pick one it would be Cowboy.

What is your all-time favourite product of ours?

Favourite product has to be the Cowboy Teepee - I just think it’s classic Cath.
