The Life of a Buyer

Alice - Buyer at Topshop

Working in the International team I'm responsible for ensuring we are thinking globally as a fashion Brand at all times. So that includes sending seasonally appropriate products to all our markets, covering local events such as Chinese New Year or Ramadan and making sure these are in-line with our local customer markets.

The favourite part of my role is that I get to interact with all different functions across the business. Whether that be Buying or Merchandising, Designers or the PR and Marketing team.

The second element I absolutely love, is my opportunity to travel to the global franchise markets in the stores as frequently as possible. This is to make sure I understand their needs to ensure I get them the right product.
