What are the Best and Worst things about your job?


Opportunities to get involved across the business in a number of tasks, and a real influence on the business from the go.


This is a very fast paced office so there is always a lot on. This is also one of the best things about the business but does mean at times that you are limited on the time you can afford to certain tasks.

Starting salary: £25,000 - £27,000

What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?

I, in particular, got the role as I had a lot of retail experience (not essential) but I would go into detail on any experience and learning gained from this environment. Definitely, submit a covering letter as this is optional.

Do you have any interview tips?

Everyone at the assessment/interview day was very friendly. Be as engaging as possible and ask questions to show your interest in the business. Remember that on the day assessors will be looking at your ability to work and contribute to a team as well as individually.
