Kathryn

Why did you join Cath Kidston?

I have been a Cath Kidston fan for many years and spent a lot of time in my local Wimbledon store. I really wanted a change in career and thought that as I already know and love the brand that it would definitely be a huge benefit to my confidence working within the store. I was so happy when a job became available.

What do you get up to on a typical day?

Each day offers new challenges; serving customers, replenishing stock, refreshing displays, ensuring that every customer is well looked after and having a brilliant shopping experience, ensuring all areas of shop are well presented! Generally I try to make sure that the customer gets what they want or at least something close to it!

What do you love most about working here?

I love meeting the different customers and working in ‘the village’ really helps build our customer base as we have a lot of repeat custom, but my main highlight is being able to be around products that make me happy which then makes it easier for me to sell!

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

Winning the Christmas competition was fantastic! I loved spending my vouchers on myself so close to Christmas after having to buy so many presents!

What is it really like to work here?

Fast paced and never dull! We often have great fun and everyone has their own quirkiness which helps our store dynamics.

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

Cath Kidston is an employer that understands working mums need flexibility to be able to work and look after my young family by offering flexible working hours. We get along really well with other stores; it’s such a friendly company which means that there is always support if needed.

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

Make sure you enjoy helping other people, love the product and always smile!

A little more about you

What’s your favourite Cath Kidston print?

London and Cowboys, partial to a few Spots here and there.

What is your all-time favourite product of ours?

I know it sounds terrible but I love my PJ Bottoms (all 6 of them) and my Stanley Mug. I am very impressed with the Kids Lined Lunch Bag this season and love that tortilla wraps fit perfectly in the laptop section of the Multipocket Backpack!
