Tom Saliba inside Missguided

How long have you been at Missguided?

3 years

Where did you previously work and how did you land the role at MG? 

I was at Topshop HQ down in London. Love the company & the people – but I was ready for my next challenge & also looking to move back to Manchester, and  there’s nowhere else I wanted to be… even if it meant working with the Mrs. 

What is a day in the life like for you at work?

One word.  BUSY.  I have the privilege of looking after quite a few teams – so means lots of meetings. Merchandisers by nature are problem solvers… and no matter how well things are going – there’s always fires that need putting out.

How did you find being on camera?

I didn’t mind it much to be fair, but I sense I’m awkward.  

What’s your favourite part of the job?

Working with some amazing people. They’re without doubt the business’ greatest asset.

What keeps you motivated?

Success.

What was the trickiest project you’ve worked on and why?

The point in time we were making redundancies – we had a serious business stock problem to manage ourselves out of. It wasn’t exactly fun & games for us Merch guys for the months that followed… but while tough times don’t last – the tough people do.
