Ecommerce senior assistant merchandiser, Hobbs.
After graduating with a psych-ology degree from Goldsmiths in 2009, Rebecca Simon realised her love of fashion late but found a home in Hobbs to learn her craft and work her way up.
She started as a distributor in January 2010, but was desperate to get into product so jumped at the chance when a merchandising admin assistant role on footwear and accessories came up in 2011. Six months later she was promoted to senior merchandising admin assistant on clothing.
In October 2012 she was promoted to assistant merchandiser on Hobbs’ invitation garments range. She wasn’t sure ecommerce was for her when her current role came up in September 2013, but “the excitement I felt when offered it made me realise it was the right decision.”
Technology and business change director Sharon Lowrie says: “In every role Rebecca has quickly gained the respect and confidence of the team around her. She brings a focus and steely determination to excel at everything she is involved in.”
