Why did you join Cath Kidston?

Joining Cath Kidston was a given for me. From the first time that I walked into a Cath store I knew it was somewhere that I wanted to work. Everything about the brand oozes creativity, nostalgia, fun and that lovely homely feeling! I applied for a Sales Assistant role as soon as I arrived in London and haven't looked back since!     

What do you get up to on a typical day?

As an In Store Visual Merchandiser my jobs vary all the time and everyday is different. It is my responsibility to ensure that my store is visually represented to the greatest standard and in accordance to the current planogram. One day I could be installing a new window display and the next I could be changing the store's layout or analysing our sales and trade patterns from last week.   

What do you love most about working here?

I love that I work for a brand in which I can be creative and work as a part of a team. Everybody in the company is lovely and like I said everyday is different. I have already learnt so much from working for Cath and have been able to not only develop my skills but progress in my role.    

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

have been lucky enough to have been given many opportunities while working at Cath. My proudest achievement would have to be being promoted from a Sales Assistant to In Store VM. I have also helped set up new stores across London which was very exciting to be involved in and rewarding to see the end result.  

What is it really like to work here?

It really is wonderful to work for Cath Kidston. I’m surrounded by lovely creative people who all come together to work as a team. Everyone not only strives to do their best but to bring out the best in each other.

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

I think the fact that your hard work doesn't go unnoticed and you are given many opportunities to further develop your skills is one of the things that makes working for Cath stand out. The people working for Cath care about you getting the most out of your role no matter what it may be and are always looking for ways to help you move up within the company.  

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

Go for it! If you want to work somewhere that has a positive environment and for a brand that you can be proud to be a part of, Cath Kidston is for you! Make sure to be yourself, be motivated and your hard work will pay off!

A little bit more about you

What’s your favourite Cath Kidston print?

This is a hard one, there's so many! The classic prints are gorgeous but my current favourite would have to be Little Boats. The colours are so lovely and fresh and the print is perfect for summer.

What is your all-time favourite product of ours?

I can't go past my Garden Gnomes Mug. It brings a smile to my face every time I go to make cup of tea!
