Store manager

"There are as many opportunities as you want there to be."

A straightforward and down-to-earth company

Emily was a Sales manager in the Wembley IKEA store, and has now been promoted to Store manager. She has worked with IKEA for 13 years, starting in Nottingham. Since then she has worked in Children’s IKEA, she was a training manager, and then a manager in the Self serve area of the store.
"IKEA is a straightforward and down-to-earth company that gives you lots of freedom. There are as many opportunities as you want there to be…What I love the most is that feeling described in our values, “constantly being on the way”. I have never had a day not knowing what to do."

"I’ve gone through several development programmes and I have learned to reflect on what makes me the way I am and why I lead the way I lead. You can use that as much outside work as in your work."
