About us

Here at Pretty Little Thing, we strive to fly the flag for love, equality, and acceptance, working to use our platform to spread nothing but good vibes. Regardless of race, gender, sexuality, style or budget – there’s something for everyone! We want our customers to feel confident in the way they dress and to embrace the way they look. #EveryBODYinPLT is our community that is all about body positivity, equality and supporting each other.

 

About the role

Are you looking for your first role in tech? Do you have some tech skills that you want to enhance so you can start your career and become a software developer? If yes, this is the opportunity for you!

Here at Pretty Little Thing we’re partnering with Northcoders to offer a fully funded apprenticeship. Together, we will give you the technical tools and training needed to be successful, so that you can move into a career with PLT as part of our Development Team. You will join them on their coding bootcamp for your first three months of being a PLT employee.

There’s no denying that online retail relies on IT. In simplest terms, we need it to make sure we’ve got an online presence so our girls can shop with us - our departments turn to IT to have the processes they need to be efficient at what they do. The PrettyLittleThing IT department puts our customers on a pedestal, and rightly so. Everything we do is about, and for, them. We want their buying experience to be the best it can be, which means sharing our expertise with other departments to get everything just right.  

When it comes to taking care of the website, app and anything else to do with our product and supply chain services, everyone calls on the Software Development team. You will join a team who are responsible for the PLT systems and making sure they deliver in the way we need them to.
