Shop Direct is the UK’s second largest pureplay online retailer, second only to Amazon. Our ambition is to become a world class digital retailer, and we’re already well on our way. In 2015, we fully embraced digital, calling time on our catalogues and becoming the successful, pureplay digital retailer we are today.
Our retail brands Very.co.uk, Littlewoods.com, Littlewoods.ie and VeryExclusive.co.uk allow us to deliver on our purpose of making good things easily accessible to more people – by giving our customers access to the latest brands, products and trends they love with a range of flexible ways to spread the cost.
We’ve invested hugely across our business in the past three years, bucking the trend in the UK retail industry, specifically when it comes to using data to create an easy and more personalised online shopping experience for our customers. We have lots more innovation to come as we continue on our journey to world class, and we’re eager to attract talent to help us achieve our ambition.
We’re a purpose and values-led business, meaning we operate with integrity, honesty and a united approach. Our purpose is why we exist – to make good things easily accessible to more people. Through our digital stores and five star rated apps, we sell over 1,800 famous brands and deliver 49 million products to four million customers every year, whilst offering a range of flexible ways for customers to spread the cost.
We’ve set our ambitions for the future high, and we’re really excited about it. Each of our colleagues has a part to play in securing our position as a world class digital retailer and the best bit is, you could play an important part in that too!
Underpinning our purpose is our clear set of values. Developed by our colleagues, our values are authentic and relevant to us. They’re not a pick and mix, they’re relevant to all of our colleagues, no matter which part of our business they work in – they unite all of us together.
People joining us are assessed and hired against our values as they form an important part of everyday life at Shop Direct. They guide us in the way we reward colleagues and above all else they help us create our unique culture and environment.
