Clare Cordell

Windows Visual Merchandising Coordinator

Joined February 2016

I was sent the job description by a friend of a friend who works here & got a call to say I had an interview on Christmas Eve 2015 (I was flying to New York the following day so excitement levels were through the roof!) I’ve always loved the brand – whenever I went into Symons as a customer I never wanted to leave & I still feel the same now – especially in the new MHS store. So when I was offered the job I was genuinely over the moon. Head Office window roles are few & far between, but a Head Office window role for one of your favourite brands is even harder to come by so I feel super lucky to be here! Everyone has been so lovely since day one; without a doubt the best place I’ve ever worked!

The people & the product. Everyone is so lovely that it doesn’t take long to feel part of the brand & working with such gorgeous product makes every window scheme, from design to implementation, super exciting!

What is your favourite product and why?

Working as part of the windows team means we get to work creatively with all product at some point throughout the year so it’s hard to pick a favourtite (I love everything!) But if I had to choose I’d probably pick home & dining – home focused windowas are my favourite windows to dress.

Production & Traffic Manager, Merchandising/Creative/Buying

Joined October 2014

I joined The White Company as Digital Asset Traffic Manager in 2014 to integrate a new digital asset management system and develop the creative processes and workflows. After 2 years, I became the Production & Traffic Manager where I now manage a team of Artwork & Retouchers and the Digital Asset Traffic Manager. I am responsible for the scheduling, delivery and management of the online and offline production requirements for the creative department.

I love being surrounded by our products every day. Previously I worked at an online retailer where I didn’t have the luxury of seeing the goods we sold, so it is great to see and our feel our products. We have a lively working environment and a sociable, creative team.

I love the scale of this frame; it is perfect for capturing all your landmark moments and holidays throughout the year. A great wedding present for friends too!
