I started in Brown Thomas in Dublin in 2014 where I initially worked on the Online Fulfilment system. From there I moved into working on the front end of the Brown Thomas website for the re-platform project in 2016. I was then offered the opportunity to lead the Selfridges Smart Content project to replace the content management system so it has been a varied journey!
What have been your career highlights?
I have really enjoyed working in retail for the last few years but one of my highlights was in 2010 when I worked in South Africa setting up an online wine retailer which was very exciting.
What do you love about working for Selfridges group?
The people - I've worked with some fantastic people across Brown Thomas and Selfridges. And in my dealings with de Bijenkorf and Holts, I see the same can-do attitude and willingness to help and learn.
What is it like living in London?
London has been both challenging and fascinating. It is a huge city so it takes a while to really find your bearings. But it is so vibrant and there is so much going on that once you get settled you can really start having an amazing time!
You have had a fantastic career in the Group, what has helped you achieve your goals?
Working with really energetic people who are customer focussed and excited about making positive change a reality.
What are the best things you’ve learnt from this varied career with us?
Building strong relationships with everyone I come in contact with - be they fellow workers, project stakeholders, other departments, executives, and most importantly customers.
What similarities and differences have you seen across the banners you’ve worked in?
The positive and progressive attitude of everyone really helps to get things done. As for the differences, ultimately all the banners are separate companies that do things in different ways. But this individual identity is the ultimate strength of each brand.
