I feel this is a company of opportunities! I have been working with Clas Ohlson for just over 7 years, starting as a Services Team Leader to then being asked to become a Sales Team Leader in the Liverpool store.
I completed around 2 years in each role and was also selected to be a part of the franchise team in our first store in Dubai.
On my return to the UK I asked for a career break to go travelling to South America and around Europe as I felt working in Dubai in such a wide role with so much responsibility, had given me the confidence that I could do and achieve anything. Clas Ohlson UK were so supportive and granted me that break to travel.
If you don’t fit a mould and want that level of responsibility then Clas Ohlson will always support you.
On my first day back to work I was given another amazing opportunity to become the Store Manager of the first new concept store for the company. I have relished this challenge and have enjoyed it so much, including balancing the operations with the commercial growth needed in this pilot store which could potentially open many further stores of the same concept.
Working for a company like Clas Ohlson gives you so much confidence as you have the autonomy to put your own personal stamp on the day to day operation.
Working for a company like Clas Ohlson has been such a fantastic experience; the opportunities I have had, have been the fruition of my hard working ethic and nature which are aligned to the company values which I signed up to on the first day. In turn I have gained the support of the company and have been able to scope out to do so much.
I have grown so much in confidence as I have had the autonomy to put your own personal stamp on the day to day operation. Here, you are accountable and it gives you the foundation to grow personally and professionally. You are a part of a family and it’s such a nurturing environment.
Challenge yourself and push yourself, ask those important questions which in turn allow you to lead the way forward to make changes. If you don’t fit a mould and want that level of responsibility then Clas Ohlson will always support you.
I am constantly learning something new and equipping myself with new Skills which I am able to use daily in my work environment.
