New Product Design Programme Manager
Five years ago I was only two years out of University and my old boss and ex-employee of Marshalls sent me a job vacancy for an Assistant Product Manager role at Marshalls. Her high regard for Marshalls and its market leading status in its industry made it an opportunity I could not refuse.
Although I started as an Assistant Product Manager in Marketing, I have now significantly progressed through several promotions to NPD Programme Manager in Operations. I never envisaged that my career would lead me outside of Marketing, especially as a female in this industry, but without the opportunity and management supporting my drive ambition I wouldn’t be where I am today. I am now enrolled on a mentoring programme with one of the Executive Directors to take my career to the next level, I genuinely can’t wait to look back in another five years at Marshalls to see how much further I have come.
Right from the day of the interview, I have never looked back. One of the main reasons, as well as the career opportunities, is the people. The people that work here are fantastic, they will always go out of their way to support you, departing their knowledge and experience and I feel lucky to have made some great friends involving many social ‘outings’ after work and on weekends, and we always leave work at the office!
