Manuela

Why did you join Cath Kidston?

I started as a part time Sales Assistant fresh out of university; I needed a job and I was recommended CK by a friend of mine who worked for the brand at the time. I loved the product already so it was an easy choice!

What do you get up to on a typical day?

My role is really varied – on a typical day I get in, have a cup of tea and start on my e-mails. I prepare Comms for our stores, attend meetings/conference calls, liaise with lots of different departments in HO and squeeze in some project work when the time allows it ;).

What do you love most about working here?

The colleagues I get to work with.

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

Organising our Store Manager Retail Conferences – it is such a great opportunity to create something special and memorable for our managers! And the events themselves are getting better & better!

What is it really like to work here?

It’s a nice and homely environment.

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

CK gives out a fresh vibe but retaining the truly unique sense of nostalgia that is quintessentially British.

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

Do some research on the Brand beforehand if you are not familiar with it – maybe trying and speak to an employee to get a true feel for the company.

A little bit more about you

What’s your favourite Cath Kidston print?

Oh my god, there are so many!! If I think old school I will have to say the Boat print. More recently the Hydrangea!

What is your all-time favourite product of ours?

Again, I am a fan so it’s hard to choose…I’d probably say the Leather iPad Covers, they are so elegant and gorgeous!
