Anna Donoghue: Head of Merchandising & Expert Cheese Taster

Anna Donoghue: Head of Merchandising

A typical day in the office is … Pretty ‘untypical’. I love my job as it is so varied but the one constant is a lot of meetings and spending as much time as possible with my great team.

My style is … Smart/casual at work and generally comfortable/casual outside of work. I’m a sucker for trainers. I always wear thick eyeliner and have done since my teenage years. I don’t feel dressed without my eyeliner!

My favourite Joules item is … The Cassidy jacket. I’m pictured in the khaki colour but I also have the navy colour too. The perfect smart/casual piece. I probably also own around 10 Harbour tops which is an easy wardrobe piece for both work and home life.

At the weekend I like to … Spend time with my little boy and husband, although I also like to see friends for play dates or meals out. Generally my weekends are focused around relaxing with friends and family but I also enjoy writing and journaling.

A typical day in the office is … Juggling seasons as we are generally working on four at the same time. Currently I’m working on concepts for AW18, refining SS18 and AW17 products and analysing sales data from SS17.

My style is … Simplistic and classic. I like clothes that can be dressed up or down. You will most likely find me wearing one of my military/workwear overshirts. On the bottom half denim is my go-to, jeans or my chinos. To finish I will generally wear a pair of trainers…..I’ve always been a bit of a trainer geek.

My favourite Joules item is …This is difficult as I’m involved in designing the whole range it’s like picking a favourite child! (Awkward) The Whittaker shirt is one of my favourites as whenever I wear it someone always pays me a compliment. What more can you ask for?

At the weekend I like to … Eat well. I love good quality organic food and I’m a bit of a machine when it comes to quantity too. There’s a lot of chasing around after my two children; dance classes, birthday parties, horse riding or just spending time with friends and family. Oh did I mention food!?

Emma Ryder: Resourcing Manager & Lhasa-Apso lover

Emma Ryder: Resourcing Manager

A typical day in the office is… Spent finding amazing talent to work at Joules Head Office.

My most recent purchase – the Laurel tencel shirt, it goes with everything!

At the weekend I like to… Spend time with my family, dog walking and long lazy lunches.

Jon Dargie: Number crunching rugby fan who loves a sunday roast

Jon Dargie: Financial Controller

A typical day in the office is …Started with a cup of tea…and then spent working with the Finance Team on reporting and planning the company’s performance.

My style is …Smart casual.

My favourite Joules item is … Any of our gilets, they’re versatile and good for all seasons.

At the weekend I like to …Spend time with the my two young children getting out and about (normally as taxi service for the kids).  Walking the dog, gardening and visiting new places or watching sport….

Katherine Choudhury: Buying Assistant & pro avocado on toast maker

A typical day in the office is… Busy with lots of coffee! Days consist of many meetings but what I love most about my role in buying is that everyday is different. It can go from reviewing sales to supplier meetings and inspirational shopping trips. Managing lots of different seasons at one time means that we can be discussing Christmas accessories one minute and then beach bags the next!

My favourite Joules item is… The Ikat print scarf. It’s a recent purchase of mine and I absolutely love it, the perfect lightweight scarf that’s also great for adding colour or keeping warmer on cooler days.
