Tell us about your role here?
As a People Partner, my role allows me to support and meet people across all areas of the business, which I love!
It's an exciting time for Condé Nast. The People Team get to support the business through its growth, by launching lots of new employee schemes and initiatives. It is super rewarding to see how these schemes are making a difference to the business and our employees. That's definitely the best part of my job!
Tell us about some of the employee schemes you have implemented and are working on at the moment...
We've recently launched our volunteering scheme. The scheme entitles employees to two paid days per year to use volunteering at any UK registered charity. This scheme is hugely important to Condé Nast, it gives employees the opportunity to not only give back to the community but also do something they are truly passionate and care about. The scheme so far has been a huge success and I love hearing stories from employees about how much joy and meaning their volunteering days brought to them!
What is the secret to a happy and positive workplace that you have found in your experience?
For me I think communication and collaboration are hugely important in achieving a positive work culture.
What does our company manifesto mean to you?
It makes me proud to be a part of a business where anything is possible, no matter who you are or what your role is. Everyone's input and voice matters, which makes Condé Nast an inspiring place to be!

It's pretty common in your 20s and 30s to feel like you're treading water financially – dealing with the immediate bills and expenses and not thinking too far beyond the next year or two. But this is the ideal time to think about the financial objectives you want to achieve. The best rewards don't come without risks, and there's no better time to start setting goals and taking chances.
In an interview, it's hard to anticipate what questions an interviewer will ask, but there is one that they are guaranteed to ask every single time (and it may be the most important question of the interview): "Do you have any questions for me?"
As we approach the end of 2019, there's no better time to reflect on the past year and prepare for 2020. This is especially true if you work from home: from tax write-offs to redesigning your home office to maximizing productivity, there's a lot you can do to make 2020 your most efficient year yet.
When you're a student, having a meaningful summer internship lead to a full-time offer after graduation is typically a "best-case scenario."
But what if you could intern at a remote-reliant, flexible company over the summer (and get the chance to talk about your work at a major conference!) and then continue working part-time while you study?
