We have a clear ambition at Shop Direct: to be a world class digital retailer make good things easily accessible to more people. Sourcing, buying and promoting each seasons ‘must haves’ is really exciting and we have the very best people collaborating to ensure the best products are available at the right price, at the right time. From Crayons and Summer Houses to Diamonds and High Heels, we sell it all.
Our buyers, merchandisers and designers work closely together and, as a team, they shape their product category strategy, bringing in their own area of expertise and ensuring it all fits back to the overall plan for the area they’re working in.
“My name is Ashleigh Christie and I am an Assistant Buyer on our Home and Furniture department and look after design bedding. My role is to support the Buyer in the development of our range in order to provide the best products for our customer and to help drive the performance of the category. The best thing about my job is how fast paced it is. We are always working together to achieve something new and innovative and it’s always really exciting, no day is the same.”
Ashleigh Christie, Home and Furniture Assistant Buyer
Every day is different and a challenge, working closely with all levels of Buying & Merchandising across all categories of the business, as well as external suppliers and it is really helping me to develop new skills.”
