Operations @ ASOS

Every single day I feel both supported and inspired! The constant flow of creativity within ASOS is contagious. It's cool to be encouraged to think outside the box.
I was initially drawn to ASOS as it is a reputable company with a culture that is unmatched. After joining ASOS I soon realised that just like the name, it was most definitely ‘As Seen On Screen’ – what you see is truly what you get. There are endless opportunities within the company with values embodying a culture of bringing your best self to work. I never feel as though I need to change to fit the status quo of the ‘corporate lifestyle’ but actually, I fit in more when I’m authentically being myself.
At ASOS I can bring my authentic self to work, you’re empowered to think different, innovate and do the things you love. ASOS is a fast paced, changing environment with fun at the heart of everything we do.

Authentic

We celebrate what makes us unique, and stay true to ourselves.

Our business is built on an inclusive culture which encourages passion, enthusiasm and development – so you can bring your best self to work. We recognise that our differences make us stand out from the crowd, giving our ASOSers and customers the confidence to be whoever they want to be. 

Brave

We’ve been bold and ambitious from the start – it’s in our DNA.

We’re empowered to try something different with the freedom to fail, turning left when others turn right. We use our voice to drive us forward, speaking up on the things our people and customers care about and challenging the status quo. 

Creative

We have a curious and adventurous spirit – it’s who we are and runs through everything we do.

We balance leadership with learning, by being comfortable as an innovator and when following in the footsteps of others. Our products and platform are fuelled by creative passion and a deep understanding of our customers, allowing us to empower millions of people around the world. 

Disciplined

Great work doesn’t happen by chance.

We need to take time in our pursuit of excellence – honing our skills, perfecting our craft, executing our plans, being comfortable with the uncomfortable and bridging the gap between goals and accomplishments. It’s a strategy that allows us to create an ASOS that’s built for future success.

Our Benefits

  • Employee Discount

    The most asked-about benefit! As an ASOSer, you’ll receive an exclusive employee discount. You can also nominate a family member or friend to share your discount with.

  • Pension

    Retirement might not be on your mind right now, but it’s important to prep for it. We offer matched contributions up to 5% to help you save.

  • Private Medical Care scheme

    If you join our Private Medical Care scheme, you’ll get fast and effective access to medical cover. 

  • Bonus

    What we achieve is always a team effort. That’s why we offer a discretionary bonus scheme which rewards you based on our group financial and strategic performance.

  • Your birthday off!

    Who wants to work on their birthday?! All ASOSers get a day off during their birthday week, in addition to 25 days of annual leave. 

  • Shuttlebus Service (if you're based in our Leavesden office)

    It’s more of a work perk, but we offer a free shuttlebus between Watford station and our office in Leavesden.

  • Sample Sales

    We’ve always got fun things happening in our offices, but the one ASOSers get most excited about is our sample sales. Plus, all proceeds from the sample sale get donated to the ASOS Foundation, which helps our charity partners abroad. 

  • Career Development

    Your career matters to us – we want to help you grow, gain new skills and learn from experiences. As an ASOSer, you’ll have access to a world-class development plan, giving you the courses (and time) to work on things that matter to you. 

  • Summer Hours

    We finish at 3pm on Fridays in June, July and August!! This perk doesn’t mean a dip in your salary – it just gives you extra freedom to enjoy those summer weekends however you want.

Location

Our Berlin fulfilment centre.

Our fulfilment centres in Grossbeeren, Germany, are for our Supply teams. ASOSers get to enjoy subsidised meals in the canteen, a free membership to Urban Sports Club and free on-site parking – but if you’re taking public transport, we’ll support your BVG ticket with €30/month.
