Pandora managing director for the UK and Ireland Rasmus Brix said: “We have an exceptional team at Pandora who put an incredible amount of passion and energy into making the customer experience so unique. It’s a key reason millions of people put their trust in our brand every day and a major contributor to our overall success as a business.

“Investing in the growth and fulfilment of our retail teams has been a top priority for us and we’ve put a great amount of effort into fostering a healthy workplace culture – one where our employees are not only rewarded competitively but also where they feel heard, valued and supported through the right tools, platforms and policies.

“We are absolutely committed to developing these areas even further as our business experiences growth.”
