As a part of my degree we was asked to find work experience so I took it upon myself to get experience within a head office environment. I got in touch with peacocks in which they were nice enough to allow me to shadow the buyers for 2 weeks. I learnt a lot from this experience. I had previously been asked to create a SWOT analysis for the buying team. The SWOT analysis was looking at ladies footwear as well as ladies dresses. These were presented to the peacocks buyers in which they found highly useful, while doing this I created a great bond with the company and made me more create business links within the buying industry. My experience at peacocks really set me up for my career within buying as it give me a great insight of what is to come .
