Here’s what some of our staff have to say about working at Truworths:
Truworths vision statement for employees:
“…I am totally committed to Truworths because I am always encouraged to offer innovative ideas which contribute to the ultimate purpose of Truworths. As a result Truworths is generous in recognising my role as an effective team member…”
Recruiter in HR department:
“Truworths is a fast-paced and dynamic environment to work in. Being adaptable and flexible is key to keeping up in this ever-changing environment selecting the individuals that best fit the business needs.”
“The reason I love working as a Merchandise Planner is that every day is different. It is a great environment as it combines numbers as well as product. Due to the dynamic nature of the industry, it is a highly pressurized environment, however being able to affect changes and see the results almost immediately is highly rewarding.”
“I love working in this dynamic and fast-moving environment, surrounded by creative and energetic people from diverse backgrounds, who have unique individual strengths. There is a lot to be said for the pleasure and satisfaction gained from seeing how our customers respond to our product offering, and this is a direct result of the direction and support given to us as a buying team. In my current role, I particularly enjoy seeing people develop and grow to reach their full potential, from Trainee Buyers through to Senior Buyers. I have grown both professionally and personally, and I am excited to see what is still to come!”
Area Manager comment
“There is nothing better then being involved in the field. My daily contact with stores, involvement in developing people, and building relationships with customers are a constant source of motivation for me, as well as the generous praise and recognition awarded for a job well done.”
