I have been working at Kingfisher full-time
The digital hub is a creative and exciting place to work. Full of supportive and relaxed people, both at my level and above. The culture has a start up feel, and design is taken seriously.
This contrasts the rest of the business, there is an archaic feel to many of the more traditional departments which makes collaboration slow and difficult.
Growing at such a fast pace has left the digital hub with little career progression structure in place.
Advice to Management
Keep on working to build structure for KF employees in the digital hub. Disrupt the archaic views of the rest of the business.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Kingfisher (Southampton, England (UK)) in May 2016.
Through 3rd party agent interview and in depth discussion about previous experience and aspirations.
First actual interview with lead Portfollio Manager and PMO (2ic).
First part of i/v process was a data analysis scenario and presentation, second part an informal discusion.
