Shane Roche

Training and Transformation Manager

Joined October 2015

Following retail Learning and Development career in two of London’s well-known department stores; I decided to focus my attention on broadening my Head Office L&D skills. The White Company was a business I was already accustomed to from being a customer, and having a close friend who had worked her way up into an Assistant Store Manager for the business after starting as a Sales Assistant while we were at University. I started in 2015 just before Christmas – our most exciting time and got stuck in with implementing a new induction programme for our London Head Office. Since joining I have been a part of numerous projects which focus on developing our people and looking into new and exciting ways to bring L&D at The White Company to life!

Our passion and drive is second to none! To be able to say I work with people that inspire and motivate me every day is something very special to me and I am truly thankful.

What is your favourite product and why?

Our Twenty-One fragrance holds a special place in my heart, I joined the business when we were turning 21, and it was the first candle I bought as an employee, the smell reminds me of the excitement of my first few months with the business! It also worked as a great gift at the time, as 1994 was the year my sister was born so it was the perfect 21st Birthday present for her!

Pay, Reward & People Systems Advisor – People Team

Joined November 2010

I started work for TWC on a fixed term contract for 12 weeks to help in the warehouse over peak, looking after the IT equipment. A position in the HR Team became available as a HR Coordinator, which I applied for. I did this role from April 2011 until Oct 2015, in this role I helped the HR Manager move Northampton DC from Brackmills to Swan Valley in August 2014, also while we were planning the move; I was collating Northampton’s DC People date that was needed for the implementation of our new People Management System- People Hub. In October 2015 I became the Pay, Reward & People Systems Advisor.

There are so many things that I love about working for TWC, I absolutely love the products, but for me I feel the best bit is the people, they always have a smile for me.

What is your favourite product and why?

I have many products that I love, Winter, Seychelles candles but at the moment I am loving all The Little White Company, because I have grandchildren and can always find something to get them.

Jeannie Eden

Company Communication & Engagement Manager, People Team

Length of Service – 7 Years

My journey at The White Company began back in 2010, when I moved to London from the US. Having a background in design and working for years in retail my mother-in-law suggested I go into The White Company because she said I’d love it…she was right! Within five minutes of being in the store I knew I had to work there. A few months later I was offered the Store Manager role at our original Canary Wharf store. After spending a year working at Canary Wharf I had the exciting opportunity to move to our new larger store at Stratford City. There I was able to witness all the fun and excitement of the London 2012 Olympics.

That autumn a role came up in the Retail Operations department for a Retail Communication Manager - which I applied for and got the job! In October 2012 I moved from Store into Head Office, where over the next couple of years I worked within the Retail Ops team on communication and engagement.

Then in early 2016 my role changed and expanded into what it is today, with myself and my team looking after communication and engagement across the entire business.

What I like best about working here are the people and the product! I have had the absolute pleasure of working with, and alongside some really amazing people. And what can I say about the product…it’s all fantastic!

What is your favourite product and why?

How could I choose?! I love everything!! From the Artisan Dinnerware to the Hydro Cotton towels, the Super Balm to my most beloved cashmere robe, I don’t think there is an hour that passes in my day that I’m not using or wearing a White Company product.
