"I always knew I wanted to work in fashion. I studied Fashion and Textile Retailing at the University of Manchester and was extremely lucky to get a job at Peacocks as soon as I graduated. I worked as a Level 1 Assistant Buyer and I couldn’t believe how much I learnt in the short time I was there. I moved to London to work for a ladieswear company and lasted 1 year! It felt like I had taken a backward step and was not being challenged as much as I was to at Peacocks…so I moved back to Cardiff! I am now a level 2 Assistant Buyer with my own areas to buy! I am constantly learning new things and I now feel I have a true understanding of what the buying role involves. The office is so close to Cardiff centre which is amazing for shopping and after work drinks. I am so happy I made the right decision to move back and am looking forward to furthering my career at Peacocks."
Kirsten Assistant Buyer, Accessories
"I started my career as a fashion design graduate working in London for a middle market high street department store on their graduate scheme. After working my way up to Buyer I decided to look for a different challenge in the growing value retail sector and joined Peacocks 9 years ago, originally as a Buyer. The Buying culture at Peacocks was different to what I had experienced previously, with a much flatter management structure. Buyers are encouraged to really take control of their departments & become experts in their products. The job is far more hands on and the pace is fast so if you really love product and want to know everything about it, then it’s a great place to work! I've also been lucky to work with a great team of people here and had some great development training over the years to help my career. I have a gained a Level 5 diploma from the CLM on management & leadership which has been invaluable in helping me progress to Senior buyer & now Head of Buying.
Originally, as a die hard Londoner the thought that there is life outside London was daunting! However living in Cardiff has been fantastic for me and my family. The shopping and social life is excellent plus we have the countryside on our doorstop! We also have the beach a mere 20 minutes away - anything I ever wanted to do in London, I can easily do here. Another bonus is avoiding the endless journeys on the train and tube as my desk is only 15 minutes away from home!"
Claire Head of Basics
"I have been working for Peacocks for the last few years and love it! I graduated with a degree in Psychology but with a love for numbers and fashion. After doing my research- Merchandising seemed the perfect career! I started my career in London working as an Allocator for Warehouse. I then moved for a promotion to Arcadia (Miss Selfridge) and continued with my career as an entry level Assistant Merchandiser. Again moving after a number of years to Debenhams. I then received a call from a company asking me whether I would consider a role at Peacocks based in Cardiff. I jumped at the chance and have never looked back!
Cardiff is such a vibrant, up and coming city with lots to do, friendly people and the seaside a stone’s throw away. Peacocks is a great company to work for- still growing, still evolving. They recognise a job well done and help you in order to reach your potential. With all the help and support I have received I have recently been promoted to Junior Merchandiser and I am now responsible for the running of my own department. I look forward to the continuous growth of the company and to what opportunities lie ahead for my career with Peacocks"
Helen Junior Merchandiser, Knitwear
"I started with the Langholm EWM Marketing Department in 2009 in the role of Marketing Coordinator. With my background in graphic design I became more and more involved with the visual and creative side of the marketing process, and eventually moved onto brand coordination and creative design. Since moving to the role of Creative Designer I have been involved in the creation of window schemes, advertising, branding and art direction on many photoshoots.
Moving to the Cardiff office all the way from bonnie Scotland has been a big change for me, but working with a larger creative team and moving to the fast-developing capital of Wales has given me the opportunity to accelerate my skills in a dynamic studio atmosphere. The Peacocks building is a fantastic purpose-built environment, housing some of the most forward thinking individuals I've come across in my career."
Mark Senior Creative Designer
"I've been with Peacocks for 13 years and throughout this time have seen and been part of many changes. The business has continued to evolve with the demands of the changing retail climate and although it can sometimes be an immensely challenging environment, is also extremely rewarding. I'm proud to be part of one of the biggest value fashion chains on the high street, but why not, come and find out for yourself!"

Embracing Equal Opportunities
It isn't surprising that as a business employing over 8,000 colleagues and operating both nationally and internationally, our commitment to embracing difference and promoting fairness at work is continually evolving. We realise it isn't just about doing what is right but it makes good business sense to have a diverse workplace.
We are all different and everyone has an important contribution to make within the business. We want to ensure that our Equality policies are well communicated whilst fairly and consistency managed right from the outset. This starts with the recruitment process and continues throughout the working relationship, making sure all colleagues are confident they have access to equal and fair treatment across all our policies and working practices.
At Peacocks we know that whilst the world around us continues to evolve we need to develop ways of working that reflect these changes and that continue to support our commitment to provide a workplace where everyone is valued.
