I started my eCommerce Merchandising career in fashion, previously working for F&F (Tesco) and New Look. I joined Wickes in September 2017 entering an exciting DIY industry which I found an interest in after buying and renovating a house. Everyday is different with new daily challenges to overcome which makes the role exciting. Ecommerce is a very fast-paced environment and you always have to be one step ahead. I love the ability to transform data into context by reviewing sales and customer shopping behaviour online to implement changes to the website. The market is ever evolving which forms an exciting part of my role to review market trends and keep up with the way customers change their online shopping behaviour. Wickes is a great place to work due to its family values. Everyone at Wickes is really friendly and supportive from the first day I started. Flexible working hours are another great benefit which enables me to improve my work/life balance. Do not hesitate to join and become part of an amazing team at Wickes!
