Exciting, challenging, uplifting and fulfilling
I started working for The Body Shop just under two years ago to provide some part-time steady income alongside starting up my own business.
I very quickly fell completely in love with the company and my job in general, so much so that I eventually moved my focus away from my business and onto pursuing a career fully at The Body Shop.
Since working for the body shop, I have gone on lots of amazing development/training trips and worked at a few of their events (Big Christmas launch event in London and concept store opening events etc.) as well as being put on a Business Management Diploma which is not only funded by TBS but the work is done on company time, so I'm also getting paid to gain a qualification!
The day-to-day work is generally quite standard... Dealing with customers, advising on skincare/makeup etc. but there is a lot of opportunity to undertake extra projects to keep things exiting and full-filling.
You have the opportunity to do paid volunteering, workshops, events etc through the store for whatever charities or good causes you care about.
The only con, for me, with where I work is that I won't be able to become a manager until the current manager leaves without relocating quite far away.
