Case Study

A place to grow

Moya is our E-Commerce Manager, here she shares her career progression at Kowtow.

“I started at Kowtow in 2016 after graduating with a fashion degree. I wanted to work for a local brand and explore all the avenues that come under the umbrella of fashion, as I had particularly liked the fashion business side of my studies.

“My career journey at Kowtow has seen me work a range of roles, starting in the dispatch team fulfilling online orders. The wider Kowtow team was much smaller then - our fulfilment was done in-house and my work covered a lot of areas that are now individual specialised roles. The way my career has progressed at Kowtow is indicative of how the company has grown in that time too. As the needs of our customers grew, so did our team. This saw me progress into new roles, with responsibilities ranging from customer service to content management in our online store.  

“Growing our digital experience has been exciting to watch over this time. We now have a fully-fledged digital team, which led  me to the role of E-Commerce manager. I now manage a team of three and love working with like-minded people who are working towards the same goals and making the industry better.

“The introduction of a reduced working week has been an amazing opportunity to reset each fortnight and spend more time travelling and being with friends and family. Kowtow fosters a positive work culture that values collaboration, respect and creativity, and has allowed me to explore my career and contribute to the company's success.
