Tom, FP&A Analyst
Before I came here I had been working for Home Retail Group in Milton Keynes, so I knew Habitat was a strong, quality brand. That was one of the main reasons I wanted to work here. I was also keen to relocate to London, so when a Habitat post opened up in London it seemed like the perfect opportunity.
"There’s always something different to do"
“I wasn’t disappointed: the role is ideal for me. Because of the variety of things I do, there’s never a risk of getting bored. It’s not the type of job where you get to the beginning of a new month and know you’ll have to start going through all the same tasks and processes again – there’s always something different to do. I also get to work with a really great team of people who I genuinely get on with. Everyone’s noticeably enthusiastic about the Habitat brand.”
"There are also a lot of opportunities for development"
“There are also a lot of opportunities for development – not just in terms of upward progression, but into different parts of the business too. I work in finance, but I’ve been able to get meaningful, useful experience in a whole host of other areas. For instance, I was recently involved in the new Habitat website, which was a brilliant opportunity to work on something new and also vitally important to the company. Because of Home Retail Group’s rapid growth recently, we’ve all had the chance to get involved in new areas.”
