Diversity and Inclusion3w

Huge congratulations to Farai Mayne, senior finance manager, and Satinder Virdee, supply chain lead, who recently graduated from Diversity in Retail’s Ethnic Future Leaders Programme. 🎓 The six-month programme aims to improve ethnic diversity in leadership by identifying and investing in high potential individuals from diverse ethnic backgrounds and supporting their progression into more senior roles. 💬 Farai said: “It was great to hear from so many inspiring, motivational people who spoke candidly about their own experiences. The programme gave us a safe space to talk and ask questions about issues like race and intersectionality in the workplace. I found the training on accepting and working through imposter syndrome, and the reverse mentoring experience, to be very valuable.” 💬 Satinder added: “The programme highlighted that being my authentic self leads to being my best in any situation. It reminded me not to limit my thinking about my career goals, and to fully embrace the opportunities that networking can create. It left me feeling empowered and I loved listening to the lived experiences of leaders and how they overcame challenges. I got so much support and encouragement from my exec sponsor Mark Atkinson, too, so a big thank you! #LifeAtTheVeryGroup

    Pros

    The Very Group has been an amazing place to work, and I will miss everyone I have met. The management team are so supportive and the flexible way of working is amazing, you get a good work/life balance specially if you have kids. I have nothing bad to say about the work culture or people. You are trusted to do your work and not micromanaged. My reason for leaving was to explore a new career path.

    Cons

    Like everybody says the pay could be better however, I would still recommend this place as one of the nicest places I have worked, for culture and people, good training and support.

      Application

      I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Very Group (Liverpool, England) in Mar 2023

      Interview

      It was a competency based interview with the Team Manager who was friendly and welcoming, lasted about 40 minutes and took place online. I enjoyed it and thought she asked me relevant questions.
