When Shop Direct meets the BBC!
We've been working with the BBC on their Bitesize educational initiatives to inspire and inform students about future careers in online tech, and the brilliant range of creative, digital and innovative roles on offer to them in the North West.
There's a Bitesize school tour running this week in the North West so we'll be out and about at schools with some of our brilliant colleagues sharing more about what they do and to answer all the curious questions these students may have.
One of our lovely #teamontour includes Stephen Gale, our product owner/design lead here at Shop Direct who spent some time to share his career path and some top tips for any students thinking... what next?

This week we opened the doors to our brand-new on-site restaurant ‘The Hangout’ for all our employees to enjoy! We love the new name, especially chosen by a colleague for its reference to the amazing air craft hangar that we call HQ.
After 4 weeks of renovation we’re so excited to use this new space to eat, meet and collaborate with one another over breakfast, lunch or a midday self-serve Starbucks!
Bring on the week ahead
We’ve raised over £1.25m for our charity partners Alder Hey Children's Uk, Claire House Children's Hospice, Booth Centre and Whitechapel since 2015.
With £600,000 of those funds being used to improve digital inclusion and employment opportunities for people affected by homelessness, social exclusion and housing poverty in the North West.
Now we’re looking for our next charity partner!
We're looking for organisations that invest in children’s future development, so that we can put our fundraising ideas and digital expertise to help make the greatest possible difference for young people.
