What attracted you to Joules and why did you choose to work for us?
Having worked at a number of large retailers prior to the role at Joules, I had a desire to work within a more entrepreneurial and dynamic environment. Growing up in Leicestershire I was well aware of the Joules brand and the opportunity to grow and develop my career alongside the brand was an opportunity I was not going to miss.
Tell us about a typical day…
