A huge congrats to this #veryambitious bunch; Lucy Rogers, Daniel Baron, Megan Shaw and Lucie Farrington who?ve recently been promoted within the Very team after completing internships and graduate roles with us. Dan was recently promoted to data engineer following his brilliant grad year in the team, and for supporting our interns and other grads as a mentor. Lucie blew us away with her customer-centric approach to everything she did as an intern in 2018. She returns as junior UX researcher after graduating this year. Megan was another of our highly driven interns that has since been promoted as a buying assistant in our fab fashion team. Lucy was snapped up as a data engineer after graduating last year. She has some brilliant experiences to share with others starting out their careers too. We're chuffed to have you back building brilliant shopping experiences with us and excited to see where you'll take us next!
We're so excited to see the #feelathome campaign with Michelle Keegan come to life ? Because even in lockdown, we kept on moving! Our innovative creative teams worked with Michelle Keegan to art-direct remotely, making sure we were able to showcase the new range from the comfort and safety of Michelle's own home and garden in our very first ?at home? photoshoot. We think Michelle makes #wfh look super-stylish! What do you think? A brilliant demonstration of one of our five company values come to life. #veryinnovative

Yesterday was our virtual Pride march, and the rainy weather was not going to get in our way! Armed with bright brollies, face paints, furry friends, and a pride-worthy music playlist (search The Very Group in Spotify), our network of allies took to the streets to actively show their support to the LGBT+ community. We couldn’t be prouder seeing an array of colour from Liverpool to Bolton to Derby to London! Happy Pride everyone 🏳️🌈💖 #pridemarchfromhome #veryproud #veryvirtualpride
There’s no better feeling than finding your people, so it’s more important than ever to take some time out of the day to connect with family, friends and your work-friends too! You know the ones, they know your coffee order back to front, join you at your fave onsite gym class and can usually be found saving you a spot in the canteen for lunch 🤗 Check out WAVE (Women at Very!)'s virtual hangout, a chance to check in, share tips and a few much-needed laughs too! #verytogether

Andy Burton, our CTO here at The VeryGroup, will be speaking at Prolific North’s Digital City Expo on 12 March. He’ll share his thoughts on how to become an agile retailer, including learning to adapt to change at lightening speed and adopting new ways of working to enable hundreds of customer experience improvements every week.
Here at Very, we like to turn great ideas into action! Take our WAVE (Women at Very) network for instance. Something that started as a chat over coffee but grew to 75 members in just 3 months! Lucie, our customer operations strategy manager brought together a network of females across the business to connect, support and share. "I’m so proud of what we’ve done in such a short time and very excited about all the plans we have for the future. Here’s to making waves!" #veryinnovative #lifeattheverygroup #jointhereinvention
