Ollie, Technology

I came to Homebase through our sister company, Argos. I started there when I was just 16, and they helped me progress a lot. I managed to become part of the digital development team, but I was still keen to move into a more front-end role. So when the opportunity came up at Homebase, I knew I had to go for it. And even though they were sad to see me leave, the team at Argos were supportive because they knew that’s where I wanted to take my career.

"There’s a warm and sociable environment "

“I’ve been with Homebase four years now, first as a Web Designer, then as a Senior Content Executive. For me, one of the best things here is the working culture. There’s a warm and sociable environment and I’ve been able to make a lot of friends. And although we work hard, it’s quite casual too – not 100% serious all the time like some places.”

"I’ve only been in the role two weeks, but I’m really excited about it"

“Because I worked in content, I collaborated closely with our marketing teams. And that’s going to continue in my new role as Solutions Manager. I’m basically going to be the conduit between our marketing and tech teams. I’ve only been in the role two weeks, but I’m really excited about it. Homebase is investing in digital in a big way.”
