Hi Manaf! You have long experience from working within e-commerce, what kind of background do you have and why did you apply to H&M?
Hi! After I took my bachelor in Marketing Communication and Business Administrations, I started as an e-commerce executive at a hotel chain in Qatar. After that I started as a Sales and Marketing representative for a whole sale company selling products for the kitchen.
When I came to Sweden I saw H&M as a great place for me to explore and strengthen my e-commerce skills within the retail industry. I really like that it is a value driven company, I think that is a key for success. When I read the H&M values I felt that H&M is a place where I want to work and grow. I wanted to take part in the online growth adventure that we are standing in front of! And now I have been within the company for a bit over 1,5 years, and have had the chance to grow not only as an e-commerce professional but also as a team member.
This sounds exciting! What do you like the most with your job as an Online Visual Merchandiser?
There is a lot of fun things in this job! What I enjoy the most is that I get to learn something new every day I come to work. I love that by working with e-commerce, we can reach customers all around the world and that there no geographical limits. Of course, we meet challenges every day, especially since everything in e-commerce is so fast paced, but it is a lot of fun to be part of the e-commerce growth and H&Ms online adventure! That your job counts!
So how would you describe H&M Online Sales in two sentences?
We have a great team spirit and a very open-minded and positive atmosphere, where everyone creates a difference. We dare to get challenged and to test new things! We are on a journey full of adventures!
