OUR CULTURE

The NET-A-PORTER group is a successful business considered a world leader in its class. To this day no one else is doing what we are on global scale, with our service levels.

Our teams work with the best in the business. We have a stringent recruitment process, so we acquire fantastically talented individuals who can inspire and create more value for our customers.

We consistently defy the stereotype of the fashion company, and people are regularly impressed by our professional, gracious, can-do attitude. This has led to us delivering industry-challenging projects in partnerships with major brands. These projects start out as a spark and quickly gather pace, with everyone playing a part. This sort of pioneering spirit engenders a great deal of pride and encourages further industry barriers to be broken.

At the heart of our business, our core values stand for everything we do.

Above all these values are genuine and not a tick-in-the-box exercise - with so many people from so many different backgrounds, doing so many different jobs and delivering so much - we can't all be identical and fashion is about expressing your personal style. We feel that our values form a common language and everything else slots together nicely. We are a multi-national and therefore multi-cultural company, and are extremely proud of our diversity. It is our policy to provide equal opportunities for everyone regardless of their gender, marital status, religion or belief, ethnic, cultural or national origins, disability, sexual orientation, age or any other condition that cannot be shown to be justifiable.

TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT

Due to our obsession with quality and service, we don't outsource, which means we have an enormously diverse and complex business. Where else would you find Java Developers working next to Womenswear Buyers? We do EVERY part of the process and are effectively an academy in global e-commerce, plus we have the flat, flexible structures allowing people to see their impact and benefit.

Create your own luck! Everyone is on a level playing field and we provide you with the support - you just need to take responsibility and provide the self-motivation, ability to learn and confidence to suggest ideas.

Through a variety of formal and informal methods, individuals are encouraged to manage their development with the support of their managers and the NET-A-PORTER group. Without a doubt everyone at theOutnet is on a steep learning curve. With a steady stream of new ideas and technologies being introduced, our demanding customers need people who have the confidence to learn on the job and can cope with the challenges given to them. Likewise we expect to challenge the norm and look to our team to constantly innovate and surprise. We provide support and collaboration, but it is not an environment for the faint-hearted. No one here knows it all. There is always someone or something to learn from.

We offer all employees opportunities to develop, from on-the-job coaching and mentoring, to the development of management skills and professional qualifications. By investing in our employees, we believe our 'net-a-pupils' will grow and thrive in our ever-expanding business.
