5 Great Reasons to Join Boots Ireland
It's great to help people We love the fact that what we do helps people to look and feel better than they ever thought possible - so you can go home feeling proud of what you do each day.
We do the right thing It's our Corporate Social Responsbility (CSR) mission to be the most socially responsible retailer in the health and beauty market. Many of our products for example have great sustainable stories. Take Extracts - one of the first, and the largest toiletries ranges to carry the Fairtrade mark. Buying Fairtrade products makes a massive difference to people's lives. In fact, when growers and farmers get a fair price for their products, it can mean the world of difference.
There's room to move Alex Gourlay, Chief Executive of the Health & Beauty Division, Alliance Boots, started his career in 1976 as a Saturday Assistant in Boots. After studying Pharmacy at university, he rejoined us and has worked his way up. It's typical of the way talented people at all levels move around the business. More roles = more opportunities to progress.
Strong leadership who listen Whether it's a chat with your manager, or something more organised, listening to people is a key part of the way we operate. That's why we created the Forum. Made up of colleagues from all areas of the business, it generates feedback to constantly improve the way we work together. Our executive team are involved to make sure ideas like the reusable lunchtime bags - which came from the Forum - are put into action.
Training that helps you do your job even better We have a genuine commitment to constantly improving our people's skills. The better you are at your job, the more you can help our customers. We're delighted to provide at least 50 hours of learning material available for all store colleagues. Over 90% of our store colleagues regularly access eLearning modules.
