I joined Sports Direct in 2008 as a Store Manager in our White City Store, Westfield. From the minute I joined, it felt so right for me. I love the Sports Direct approach to business, and I feel the company valued and continues to value my contribution. The opportunities to progress at Sports Direct are excellent. After 6 months with the company, I was given the chance to demonstrate my ability as Store Manager of the Oxford Street store - one of the Flagship Stores with one of the highest turnovers in the business.. The company's attitude and care towards development are second to none. In 2010 I moved on from Oxford Street to set up a new store in Camden, my performance at Camden helped me earn a promotion to Area Manager.

Throughout my time in the business the rewards I have experienced, from tickets to Football Matches (not just standard tickets - corporate hospitality tickets), to a once in a lifetime trip to Verbier in the Swiss Alps, have been absolutely out of this world. These experiences are the kind of thing you see celebrities doing on reality TV shows or read about in magazines.

In 2014 I earned the opportunity to run the newly relocated hybrid Flagship Store in Oxford Street. This store was extended to 55,000 sq.ft over 5 floors and is a combination of Sport, Fashion and Lifestyle floors. This New Concept Mega Store was unlike anything else in the business and became the first of a new wave of Hybrid Stores.

This was an opportunity to succeed at a high profile challenge that I had always wanted to experience in retail. There isn't another retailer out there who could inspire as much passion in me as Sports Direct. The life changing opportunities are amazing and they are available to anyone who is dedicated, passionate and willing to contribute.

With a big passion for retail, in 2009, I joined two of the top high street retailers including Sports Direct as a casual sales assistant. Due lavori di manipolazione non era facile, ma presto realizzato che effettivamente ho aderito una grande famiglia e un ambiente molto veloce. It wasn't long until I accepted a full-time position in Sports Direct. Da allora, con il supporto di questa dinamica team (SD famiglia), ho gradualmente lavorato mio modo fino a livello di Store Manager in azienda più gratificante e più rapida crescita nel Regno Unito. What I enjoy about working for this company is the strong sense of teamwork we have, to work with other managers who all have the same vision, goal, and passion for this business.

The benefits and rewards available go hand in hand with the support I receive to motivate me to improve standards, service, and results. Qui, né due giorni sono gli stessi. I have worked for a few different companies, but none are as challenging and rewarding as Sports Direct. So che se lavoro duro, mi metterò le ricompense che me lo merito.

Always thirsty for success, my aim is to keep my team on the top spot but also looking forward to taking over bigger turnover stores or even expand my experience into Europe.

I joined Sports Direct as Store Manager in October 2014, Having worked for 10 years as a discount homeware manager. I was looking for a new exciting challenge and the opportunity to work in sport and fashion retail, was too hard to resist. Ho iniziato nel ramo Paisley prima di passare al ramo di Greenock, dove conduco una team del personale 25.

I was quickly hooked on the fast-paced, high energy environment and inspired to drive results in-store by the company's hard work and support culture that is set from the top down. In my short time with the business so far I've been impressed with how fast the business moves on from week to week. It's an exciting time to work for Sports Direct and I look forward to a long future.

Spero di continuare a sforzarsi di mettere così tanto nel business come esco. So che ho fatto una grande carriera spostare unendo sport diretto.

I joined Sports Direct in 2013 after deciding to leave a leading high street fashion retailer. I was bored and wanted to see a visible difference where I worked and to be recognised.

I Applied for an Assistant Managers role and was contacted the same day. After a phone conversation, I was asked to attend an interview, it was the most honest and enjoyable interview I have ever had. I knew I would really enjoy working for Sports Direct, and I was delighted when I was offered the job the same day.....I haven't looked back since.

Within 6 months of starting as an Assistant manager, I progressed to Store manager into a store that was due to have a refit later that year from 8000sqf to just under 16,000sqf. I currently have a team of 40 and I am so proud of them and the store. The team I have provides consistent support, together we drive store performance and maintain excellent standards. In a few years' time, I hope to continue my progression into an Area Managers role.

I was recently presented with an all-expenses paid trip to Verbier, an exclusive skiing resort in the Swiss Alps. This trip was, without a doubt, the most memorable trip I have ever been on. I felt truly privileged to be acknowledged for all my hard work in this way.

It's a bit cliché to say, but Sports Direct is by far the best retailer I've worked for. Don't get me wrong it's hard work and demanding, you have to have the drive and passion in order to succeed, but the rewards and opportunities are unlike anywhere else!

I started for Sports Direct at the age of 16 having left college to pursue a career in retail. I started with the company as a part-time sales assistant, within a year I was offered a full-time contract. After only two years with the company, my hard work was rewarded with a promotion to floor supervisor in the Exeter store, and a little later another promotion in the same store to Shoe Supervisor. I developed my knowledge in this role for a couple of years until the announcement of a new store in Exeter, where I was offered the opportunity to progress up to an Assistant managers role. With continued support and development from the Exeter Store Manager and Area Manager, I was eventually ready to tackle a new challenge as Store Manager, in the new Torquay store.

I am grateful that my Area Manager spotted my potential and the company supported my development. Due to this, I am fortunately able to manage my own team of around 30 staff and provide them with the same opportunities I was afforded, I find this very rewarding.

The company has experienced massive growth since I started and it has become the UK's largest sports retailer. I'm proud to have been a part of this and excited to contribute to Sports Direct's future. It is a great feeling going to work each day for a company you love.

Sports Direct has guided my career, with in-store training and their "Homegrown" talent development program, based at their head office training academy. I can honestly say I would have never expected a part time job at 16 to take me on this amazing career journey.

I joined the company in November 2012, on my very first day of my 2-week training at head office I knew sports direct would be a perfect fit for me. È difficile, veloce e molto adattabile.

Retailers I have worked for in the past would wait and hope for things to happen. This is not the Sports Direct way, we react, change and adapt in order to make things happen. That`s one of the many things I love most about Sports Direct. I joined the company as an Assistant Manager in our Lakeside store, the amazing support I received then got me off to a flying start and also contributed to my continued success.

In February 2013 I was offered a promotion to Store Manager in a new store that had just been developed in Southend High Street. This store was a blank canvas for me to make my mark, and show exactly what I was able to achieve…. E ho fatto proprio questo! Fast forward to march 2015 and I was offered the Store Managers role at Thurrock. With a larger retail space and higher turnover, this step in my career allowed me to shine in a higher profile store. I have since been trained as a stocktake buddy and now work alongside my area manager to complete weekly stocktaking across the area.

Everyone likes to make a difference in their job… At Sports Direct you genuinely get that opportunity on a daily basis. With further expansion in the UK and Europe and developments at head office, the diverse opportunities available for your career to progress are unrivalled across the whole of the retail sector. The rewards are just as diverse and generous.

I have only been with the company since 2012, and it is extremely exciting to imagine what the future holds for Sports Direct.

My only regret is that I didn’t join the company sooner!

When making the move to Sports Direct what I hoped for most were more opportunities to progress my career in retail, After years of working for companies with little to no movement or expansion, it is refreshing to work for a company that is ever changing and full of opportunities. I found out fast that I had made the right move and I have not looked back since...

I quickly learned the pace and work ethic needed and was immediately inspired by the structure, pace, and training I received. The support provided to me whilst starting continues to this day and feeds my passion for Sports Direct.

First, I was offered a Supervisors role at the Grays store that was at the time still under development. This gave me the perfect opportunity to train at the Southend store for a month before the opening of the Grays store. I worked hard and listened to the advice and training I had received and within 4 months I was promoted to Assistant manager of the store. This quick progression coupled with the "Homegrown" training program offered at Sports Direct head office in Shirebrook, fed my desire to aim higher. I can only describe my time at Shirebrook as inspirational, here alongside others like myself with the desire to progress, we learned from the best over the course of two weeks. This support and training set me up for success and it really was an experience that will stay with me. Of all the different retailers I have worked for I have never witnessed such amazing opportunities.

Shortly after "Homegrown" I was once again promoted, this time to Store Manager. The 9-month journey to Store manager was exceptional and completely exceed my expectations. I am still learning, I still want to push higher, and i have new goals. Sports Direct continues to give me reasons to stay inspired.

Working alongside others that share this passion like Andy my Area Manager, Darren the Manager of Southend at the time now Romford...and Dan Williams my Manager from Grays, inspires me to be as good as or better than these guys and I can't think of a better place/company to achieve this.

Avevo lavorato nella vendita al dettaglio per dieci anni in Francia e avevo bisogno di una nuova sfida. Even now, I still can't think of a better choice than Sports Direct. È una società molto popolare, velocemente crescente e di successo. I knew about Sports Direct from a regular customer point of view and I was surprised and excited to see it from the inside. When I started with Sports Direct I attended their two week training and induction course at the Shirebrook head office. Here I was able to learn more about the company and its processes; the training was very intensive but very rich with useful information. After I had finished I was inspired and excited to start my journey with Sports Direct.

Day to day I really feel that my hard work makes a difference. We are always encouraged to put forward new ideas, which allows you the freedom to think outside the box. What I like most about my job is the feeling that I am contributing to the success of the company. I have worked for a lot of different companies but I have never witnessed a culture like Sports Direct. From the top down there is an unparalleled and inspiring level of dedication to the company's success. I feel lucky to be part of this big family, working together and being rewarded and acknowledged for my hard work.

As the company continues to grow I want to progress even further and I'd like to support with new store openings all over the world! With Sports Direct, the sky is the limit!

I have been with Sports direct since 2010, where I started in a part-time position. In April 2013 I was promoted Supervisor of the Reading store. Over the years I began to realise how infectious the passion within Sports Direct can be, from the top down everyone is utterly committed to the company's success. My manager at the time saw my potential and provided me with the support and development I needed to progress further. I was able to attend a week long training course at our Head Office in Shirebrook, this was the first time I had done anything Like this and after I really caught the bug for progression.

As my confidence and abilities grew my Area Manager put me forward to assist another store. I saw this new challenge as an excellent opportunity to develop further. I was able to attend the "Homegrown" course which is a two week course aimed at developing people within the company. Each time I returned from Shirebrook, I came back more confident in my role and inspired to work hard and work smart.

My hard work was acknowledged when I was offered a promotion to Assistant Manager, about 1 year after my appointment to Supervisor. Sono molto orgoglioso di quanto velocemente sono riuscito a progredire e sono molto felice con il mio nuovo ruolo. I feel lucky to be part of a business that is prepared to invest in my future and is expanding quickly enough to constantly be creating new positions.

I joined the company in 2012 as a part time sales assistant whilst studying at university, to earn a bit of extra money. I found that I really enjoyed the role and the variance that comes with it day-to-day. Upon leaving university I was offered a full-time contract and jumped at the chance to work for such a diverse company. I quickly progressed to a supervisor's position, taking on more responsibility within the store. A year later I was put forward to go on the Sports Direct Home Grown course, a career development program run by the company, to promote in-house talent and dedication.

Upon completing the course I was promoted to Assistant manager in a higher turnover store, where I was able to shadow the Store Manager and develop my skills which allowed me to make a difference to the business by driving my store's sales and standards.

Since then I have been promoted to Store Manager which opened up different challenges and more responsibilities. I am now working to develop my own team and identify rising stars to achieve their goals and help shape future managers.

Throughout my time with the company I have been rewarded for my hard work and effort, an example of this was an amazing opportunity to go skiing in the Swiss Alps in Verbier. I have also rewarded my team with tickets to major sports events. Seeing their efforts recognised is a reward in itself.

I've quickly progressed through the ranks thanks to the support of my store and area manager and hope to keep climbing the ladder of success. I love my job as much now as I did from day one, and I am proud to work for a company where this sort of progression is possible.

After several years working in the computer industry I was given the opportunity to join Sports Direct (as it was then Sports World) in May 2007 as a Full Time Floor Supervisor in a great, fast paced busy store in Plymouth.

Since joining Sports Direct the company has changed so much, to re-branding from Sports World, the great World Cup sales of 2010, the companies move into Europe and continuing expansion plus aiding with Sports Relief. It has been a very exciting time for everyone involved, especially myself as I have seen it change so rapidly and grow so fast into the company it has become today.

I have gained so much from Sports Direct from First Aid and Fire Warden Duties to being picked to transfer over to Sweatshop as the Assistant Manager. I have not only gained more knowledge in running now but my personal fitness, working with external projects and meeting company reps from all different companies has enhanced me making me hungry for more.

Since joining Sports Direct in 2007 I have gone from strength to strength, starting on the replica floor in Plymouth to moving to the Customer service department, being in charge of outdoor and more technical sportswear which has helped me gain invaluable experience and a greater customer service focus and on a one to one basis. Being part of the first group to go on the Home Grown scheme with Sally and Justin was also a great privilege for myself... It truly is a great course that I would tell recommend to anyone.

The rewards the company offer are just of epic proportion. From the 5* scheme to the Share Bonus Scheme, I really don't know of any other company that reward like Sports Direct. The financial and personal gain is beyond my wildest dreams, to know that you will get rewarded through your hard work and determination is mind blowing. Being able to have those small or big luxuries in life that you always want... and thanks to Sports Direct those luxuries have come true.

I started my career in 2010 as a casual sales assistant just working for extra cash while I was at sixth form. I worked in this state for 2 years as it was very flexible and met all my needs. Once I finished sixth form I didn't bother with going to university, instead I sought a career in retail. The opportunities and progression I saw within this company got me fixated on making a great career within the shop I worked at, known as Doncaster Wheatley. After putting in a lot of effort I was instantly recognised by the management team at this point and was soon offered a full-time position.

Securing a contract with more responsibility gave me more ambition to reach a higher place. I was given every bit of encouragement and advice needed from the management team and area manager. After listening to everything I soon reached a Supervisor level which I enjoyed and challenged me in every way needed. Even after this I still hungered for more and with a company that holds so much potential and opportunity, why wouldn't you?

I was Back at my manager begging for more training, soon enough an opportunity arose for me to go on a "Homegrown" course at head office. This course was absolutely brilliant in highlighting every aspect of how a Sports Direct shop runs and should run. It helped to build on my own personal development in life and in my job role. The support for skills and knowledge is given without having to ask twice.

So not only are the opportunities great for progression in a career of retail but the support is second to none. I am now working as assistant manager in Doncaster Wheatley with a very healthy salary and multiple Bonus schemes. I would like to point out that all these transitions have happened in a very quick space of 2 years. Meaning if you're willing, ambitious and have the drive to succeed I couldn't think of a better place to choose. When I think of how I would like to progress, I want to be in a position to run my own shop and I'm sure with the constant support I will achieve this very quickly.

I started with the company in June 2011 as a casual sales assistant at the Leicester Town Centre store where I first got the taste of fast paced retail. I instantly enjoyed the job and got a real hunger to be the best and get as many hours as I possibly could. In February of 2012, I was given a promotion to a full-time member of staff which made me even hungrier to achieve more within the store and the business. The store manager and other senior managers provided me with a lot of in-store support and in the June of that year, I was given another promotion to footwear supervisor.

Eventually after a lot of guidance from my Area Manager, Store Manager and The "Homegrown" course I was promoted into my current job role as Footwear manager in June 2014. My responsibilities include: running my own department and coaching the 30+ staff members that work within it, complying with company guidelines, meeting sales targets and of course trying to be the best Footwear department in the business.

The company provided me with the amazing opportunity to support stores in Hungary and Austria for a year. Here, I helped coach people on the day to day running of a Sports Direct store. The best experience for me was doing this in the Budapest Arena store, which is one of the biggest stores in Europe.

Sports Direct offer a lot of training and guidance opportunities to allow you to develop along your chosen career path. I found this out first hand when I attended a week's training course at our Shirebrook head office. The training team there really helped me to be more confident in my role. I pass their guidance on to my team daily to help support each one of them in their personal development.

The company has changed a lot since I first started; more than ever our focus is on customer service and, with the company experiencing sustained growth, each staff member has the opportunity to progress.

There are a lot of Reward schemes for the business and for every staff member. I myself have been able to buy a car through bonuses I have received and, as a team, our efforts are rewarded equally with every staff member being able to afford extra holidays and receive exclusive tickets to sporting events.

I would encourage anyone with a driven and ambitious attitude to try this company as the rewards and team atmosphere are definitely the best in retail.

I started with this company in July 2013 as a casual sales assistant at the Doncaster Wheatley store, I worked in the clothing department helping to merchandise the store. I came into the store striving to get noticed, as hearing about the opportunities available got me really interested. Within a few months, the management team saw potential in me and I secured a full-time contract.

A few months after that I was then given the opportunity to prove myself as a supervisor. This really challenged me but also develop my skills further!

My Area Manager saw my potential and offered his continuing support to help me progress further. He put me forward for the "Homegrown" training course at head office. This course developed my knowledge on everything required to run a store and gave me a confidence in my own abilities. The next step for me is to become assistant manager at another store which I cannot wait to do! Future aspirations are, to run a store, progress to Area Manager and go even further! The possibilities are endless within Sports Direct.

I have worked for the company for roughly five years now; in my five years I have worked in three different shops and been promoted from casual sales assistant to shoe supervisor. I started in Kingston working part time while at university, where my managers quickly recognised my enthusiasm and willingness to learn. Although, at the time I never intended to have a career within the company because I just needed some money to top up my student loans, they still saw the potential in me and helped me to recognise it within myself.

I would highly recommend working at Sports Direct regardless of whether you want a career or part time. For example, the zero hour contract allowed me the freedom to work less when I needed to revise for exams, but also allowed me to work more when I needed the extra money. The work can be hard sometimes as with any job, however, with the company 5-star bonus scheme you won't find another job in retail that rewards as well as SD.

When I left university, I decided to stay in the company - thanks to my energetic and passionate management team. I was immediately taken under the wing of my footwear manager, where he spent a lot of time one-on-one with me helping me to learn how to manage others and inspire them to excel as he had inspired me. I was regularly sent to other shops to help out or to set up a new shop from scratch, which was challenging but really helped me to feel really part of the company and something bigger than just my local store.

Working for sports direct is a great experience and has really helped me to develop both as an individual and as a manager and I hope to progress further within the company in the coming years.

I started at this company back in 2011 just as a little way to earn some extra money while studying. I currently work on the shoe department of Sports Direct at Wheatley Hall Road in Doncaster. I can honestly say the amount of opportunities and potential to earn money is fantastic. On average, I earn around an EXTRA £3 an hour on top of my normal wage, which can work out to up to £140-£180 extra per week. So, on top of my normal wage this can be up to £550-£650 a month, which makes the earning potential for me and anyone else in this job endless.

You decide your own wage and this benefits students massively. My motive is to pay off as much of my University fees as possible, which then allows me to prioritise my money on more important things like nights out and events! All joking aside, this scheme has definitely made my life so much more easier financially. I'm able to feel a huge sense of relief knowing that I have more security on my finances, plus having more money always makes you feel great. To top it off I work in one of the best stores where the atmosphere is absolutely buzzing, you're always encouraged to earn as much as possible.

I have been with the company for few years now and the idea of the company 5-star bonus scheme sounded like a good idea because it is just selling a customer everything they need but with an incentive to maximise sales.

The scheme started off a bit challenging in terms of how the add-ons were connected but now the possibilities are endless with no cap on the amount you can earn. The scheme makes the job so fulfilling, while seeing the customer happy with their purchase just makes it worthwhile in my eyes.

The 5-star bonus scheme urges you to improve all aspects of selling and your customer service to maximise sales; I have already managed to buy an apple watch with my earning and have nearly paid off my 10 day trip to New York.

I started working for Sports Direct in 1999 for a part-time job when I was at school. The company allows you to transfer easily between stores so I continued working while I was at university. This gave me five years of experience working in two very different types of stores; I was working in the small store in my hometown of Peterborough and also in the huge store at Meadowhall during term time in Sheffield. When I finished university, I was lucky enough to be offered a full time supervisor role; I accepted this easily because I already loved the fast paced nature of Sports Direct and didn't want to leave the company.

I spent about six months working in Peterborough but much of this time was spent away on new store installations which were a great way to learn more. After moving to Milton Keynes with my friends, I was able to transfer to this store and it wasn't long before I was asked to help open the New Bedford store to work there as supervisor. At this store, I was able to progress quickly under a strong management team up to the position of Store Manager.

As a result of the success of this store, in 2010, I was asked to run the Oxford Street store by the Regional Manager - an opportunity that I couldn't turn down! I said that I would do it for a year of experience and have never gone back. Nothing compares to the pace and buzz of working on Oxford Street and how different every day is. In May 2014, we opened the new Oxford Street Megastore where I am now General Manager - a store that truly shows how much Sports Direct has changed over the last 15 years.

Nothing beats my experience at Oxford Street and the rewards that both I and the store have received. From free ski trips to the exclusive ski resort of Verbier - which includes the celebrity lifestyle of chefs, ski lessons, ice karting, hot tubs and champagne, to regular tickets seeing top sporting events such as Premier League football and Wimbledon. Through managing Oxford Street and having a highly passionate and dedicated team, we have won some incredible store and brand competitions; where I have had the chance to fly to Boston, USA to watch Liverpool v Roma at the Red Sox stadium, and my footwear manager was rewarded with a trip to New Zealand for the last rugby World Cup.

The store also won a competition with the prize being two tickets to watch Arsenal play in Milan for the Champions League, that we gave to the full time sales assistant and casual sales assistant whom we felt contributed the most to the competition. I love managing a large team of over 200 staff and helping others to build their career with Sports Direct like I have done. I get to see people that I recruited as casual sales assistants, progress into Senior Management positions within the Oxford Street branch, or go on to be Store Managers in some of our other Central London stores. The new megastore is not only about the next manager but also allows us to support people to develop their passion into careers, which includes technical sports specialists, visual merchandisers in our branded areas, in-house admin and security teams or working in our Pulp concession where we hold regular band signings. Every day is different and I've had some unbelievable opportunities and support to help me to progress to the manager that I am today. I want to help others achieve the same; hard work and passion is rewarded and I just can't imagine working for anyone else.

On joining the company I was impressed by the sheer size of the organisation, including the distribution centre in Shirebrook to the vast amount of store which continues to grow.

In recent months my store has been extended to 26Ksq ft. with around 100 people and I feel privileged to be running such great store for Sports Direct.

I have worked within the fitness and leisure industry for 8 years. This wasn't always my chosen career; in my early twenties, I worked as a Special Constable for Merseyside Police for 3 years with the ambition to become a regular police constable.

My career path soon changed direction when I realised the potential to become a manager within the business. I undertook a management development course with LA Fitness which really helped me to grow as a manager. Two years after moving over to Liverpool as Operations Manager from Formby, my regional management team realised my potential and offered me the position as General Manager.

I put my all into the role and have worked as a General Manager now for nearly six months. I love running my own club and working with the team to grow and develop their skills in order to run a successful club. I have promoted two managers in six months and recruited some fantastic new people to be part of the team here. With the company growing so quickly, there are always areas to progress and develop a career.

I am very hands on, as managers often say "I never ask somebody to do something that I wouldn't expect to do myself".

I love customer services and I am often still complimented on my customer skills. This simply goes back to the basics and realising that something so simple like a smile and a hello can have such a positive impact on member experience.

Since transferring over to Sports Direct Fitness in November 2014, the company have had a few up's and down's which was to be expected. The transfer from retail to fitness has proved a little harder than first realised but I can slowly see it starting to come together.

Combined with the ambition and drive from the amazing people who work as part of Sports Direct Fitness team, I am excited for the future and, after attending my first GM conference last week, I am feeling extremely motivated and inspired to succeed in building my club in Liverpool to be the best it can be.

Sports Direct Fitness clubs were expanding and creating a unique name for themselves and I knew I wanted to be part of it! Each day is different and that is what I love about the fitness industry. The commitment and teamwork from all employees is inspiring and makes me proud to be associated with this brand. In the future I hope to be opening a new club as a General Manager and leading my team from the front.

I started work at Sports Direct in June 2004 as a warehouse operative, employed via an agency. The Company was based in Dunstable back then and I was one of those ladies sticking labels on the products. After 10 months, I was offered a job in the IT workshop to help with a large IT upgrade, where we were changing the till system at that time. I still remember the pain in my thumbs after two weeks of changing memory sticks in till computers. Being part of the IT Workshop team helped my understanding on how the tills systems work and my IT background proved useful as well.

When the Company moved to Shirebrook I was offered a full time position as an IT Trainee. It didn't take long before I was promoted and moved to be a part of the IT Helpdesk team. Whilst working on the IT Helpdesk, I was responsible for looking after all the stores' IT needs as well as head office and the warehouses. I was exposed to a vast array of technologies, systems and people - I loved my time here. It felt as though my brain was growing every day, as each day brought new challenges and new skills to learn.

I found one particular area of IT fascinating, SQL and databases, our entire company is built around these technologies and wouldn't function without them. I spent a lot of my own time researching SQL and trying to put what I learned into practice in the work environment. My increased knowledge was being noticed by my colleagues (and my manager) and I started to get lots of project work in this area.

Through natural business growth, a position arose within the SQL \ Database team, I spoke to my manager and asked how he felt about putting my name forward; he had already put my name forward! The rest is history.

It feels like the Company has really looked after me over the years. I've been sent on lots of training courses and worked with some of the best brains in industry, most of all I love the people I work with and the social aspect of work. I now see some of my colleagues as family rather than just people I work with.

I started working with Sports Direct in October 2012 in the distribution warehouse, so that I was able to move out on my own. After a year and a half I was given the opportunity to move up to work with the customer services department, and I haven't looked back since.

Working in customer services has provided me with a great opportunity to push myself in an environment that I have never worked in before and I find the whole experience of helping customers to resolve any issues or complaints extremely satisfying.

Everyone is helpful and supportive which helps make any challenges achievable. The whole experience so far has been exciting and interesting and I can't wait to see what the future with Sports Direct has in store.

Previous to starting with the company in 2010, I had been doing ecommerce photography part-time after graduating, and wanted something more permanent. I relocated away from my hometown for the job and from the first day everyone here made me feel welcomed and supported.

From the very beginning this company has thrown me in at the deep end and challenged my abilities, from a shoot in an abandoned London tube station to aerial shots from a helicopter. I have photographed everything from brand campaigns, corporate headshots and events to celebrity ambassadors.

This varied role has developed my abilities, my confidence and my decisiveness and has genuinely improved me as a person and a practitioner.

As the company has grown, the department has evolved a great deal, and in 2013 I was promoted to Photography Manager, giving me many more responsibilities. Sportsdirect.com is a company where you get what you give. They reward hard work and offer great opportunities. The company is ever expanding and changing whilst still retaining a family feel and I look forward to my next chapter.

I first started with Sports Direct in October 2001, as a casual sales assistant and quickly moved to full time sales assistant and Delivery Supervisor in the space of a month. I then worked in a lot of stores across the area before moving to Floor Supervisor. Ho trascorso tempo in molti negozi come sarebbe sempre muoversi quando necessario aiutare dove mai avuto bisogno. Sono stato su e giù per il paese su Installa e refit e memorizzare pick-up da come estremo sud come l'isola di Wight nelle Midlands.

I joined Sports Direct in December 2007 after graduating from University. This was a massive opportunity to be part of, not only a thriving company, but to start a new e-commerce department where I was able to make a big difference from the beginning.

When I was working in store, I initially wanted to get a Sports Direct Email and to get my name on the phone; I now have that. Next, I want to work on becoming more involved in the office. My limits are endless and I want to progress as much as I can in a Company I don't ever want to leave!

Sports Direct is a big family, it has been with me for 13 years and have met some amazing people in that time. From fellow members in store to the big names in the office. It's been amazing for me, ever since the decision to move to Shirebrook. I now see the company in a bigger light than what I did before, you now get to see how the engine works and all the great people that help keep it running smooth. It has given me a safe and secure way of life which no other company can give!

I started at Sports Direct in May 2006 looking for a new role in retail after previously working in a call centre environment and as a trainee assistant store manager.

From the beginning, I was in head office starting within a small but dedicated team; I knew I had joined a forward thinking company in which I could expand my career. My role at the start involved looking after a region of stores which I enjoyed immensely, and from this I was fortunate to be able to progress to running and building reports that assist Sports Direct in the day to day running of the company.

No one day is the same at Sports Direct and I enjoy the challenges that each day brings from collating reports to solving problems. My role is varied and I know if I work hard I can exceed my own expectations. The hard work is rewarded with an exceptional bonus scheme that no other retail company can match. This has enabled me to purchase my own home and travel to some amazing places.

Ho iniziato a lavorare per sport diretto come un designer di abbigliamento junior 2009 - subito dopo finito l'Università. The team was quite small and I designed everything from fashion ranges like Kangol and Golddigga, to sports and performance brands like USA PRO and Karrimor.

As the design team grew, it split into specialist areas- core sports, performance sports, fashion design, and character design, as well as a great team of graphic and product designers. Ho lavorato sulla moda team per i prossimi anni 5, lavorando la mia strada fino a livello di design e avendo un progettista junior che lavora con me sulle nostre marche di moda.

Ho recentemente spostato nella progettazione team nuovamente e sono ora responsabile del calcio e altri capi d'abbigliamento con licenza. This includes, designing football kits, fan-wear for the stadium shops, RFU rugby, UEFA and many other big licences.

As a designer at Sports Direct, no two days are the same. I am involved in all areas of the design process, including: researching, designing ranges, liaising with the in-house factory agents to ensure the designs are interpreted correctly, and approval of colours and samples. È bello vedere un design andare da un'idea di un capo finito in archivio e l'emozione di questo non invecchia mai!

Sono stato su alcuni viaggi di ricerca incredibile e fiere nel Regno Unito e all'estero, a luoghi tra cui New York, l. a e Germany, che è duro lavoro, ma una grande parte del lavoro! Io ho anche stato premiato per i miei sforzi con biglietti per partite di calcio, essendo selected per andare alla conferenza annuale a Newcastle e il sistema di bonus cambia vita.

È incredibile vedere come l'azienda è cresciuta nel corso degli anni, io amo il mio lavoro e sono orgoglioso di far parte di un grande team.

I started at SportsDirect.com in September 2004 as a warehouse operative. It was my first job after migrating to the UK so I did not have big expectations but I quickly realised that by putting effort in and working hard you can quickly progress.

When the company was moving from Dunstable to Shirebrook in 2006, I was transferred temporarily from the warehouse to the IT Workshop. I was mainly helping with non-IT jobs and that was a time when I discovered new possibilities.

I discovered my interest with IT hardware, quickly learning how to repair and do maintenance for all IT equipment used within the company.

I got a full time contract as an IT Trainee in January 2007 and that was the year when I also went back to college to start my education in Computer Science. It wasn't easy to do a full time job and study at the same time but I enjoyed learning about new IT areas and getting new skills. I worked very hard for my progression from IT Trainee to IT Workshop Team Leader where a year later I joined the ranks of IT Support.

My hard work, commitment and loyalty have been rewarded many times, not only by being promoted but also by extra time off spent in the Swiss Alps (Verbier), where I could enjoy a great winter holiday.

I'm now working as an IT Support Team Leader and I feel very fortunate that I have had great opportunities to make a difference, to prove myself and grow within the company. Within all those years I developed my skillset and I'm now passing my knowledge to my team of young skilled IT geeks who are helping to move the business forward.

I started working for SD in February 2006, just after the opening of our flagship store here in Shirebrook. I can honestly say I have loved every minute of it, the people are amazing and continually motivate, inspire and push you to reach your goals.

I began by doing the delivery shift each morning, then moving onto tills and then Footwear which enabled me to learn all aspects of working on the shop floor. I initially started with a part time position but was quickly given a full time role; I worked in the store for approximately a year before being offered an admin position within head office as part of the buying team.

During my time within the buying team I have worked my way through the ranks: starting with buying administration, moving onto stock control, and now a buyer. I have now been given huge responsibilities to look after all aspects of business with one of our key suppliers, whilst continually getting opportunities to progress and encouragement to use my own initiative.

In the future I will continue to develop my knowledge and skillset which I can then pass onto other members of my team to further help towards our targets and maintaining our UK’s number one status.

In the 9 years I have worked here, there has never been a dull moment and I would not change it for the world. I have had the chance to experience once in a lifetime opportunities, including: trips to the Swiss alps, watching the 100m running final at the 2012 Olympic games and a life changing bonus scheme, if anyone is thinking of joining our team I would say do it…it's the best decision I have ever made.

My goal for our team is to help increase web sales, while also tailoring the look and feel of each website to help enhance the consumer journey. I am looking forward to growing the team and taking on more and more sites as the Sports Direct group increases its portfolio.

I think SD is a great company to work for with a great team of people that are more of a family than work colleagues. The group also has one of the best bonus schemes in the country, if not the best; since I've joined Sports Direct I have not looked back!

I applied for the Sports Direct Finance Graduate scheme in April 2014, when I looked on their careers website whilst I was studying at University. I saw it as a great opportunity to join a FTSE100 company that is still young and heading in the right direction with growth year on year. I was successful with my application and attended an assessment day, this was a great experience as I got to meet current employees and ask them about their roles within Sports Direct. I was fortunate to be offered a place on the graduate scheme for two months in which I came first place and made my role permanent.

My role is a Financial Accountant and I have now been at Sports Direct for just over a year. I studied Business and Management at University so had little experience of Accounting beforehand but the company were more interested in my potential ability rather than what I already knew which was reassuring. The training I have received has been great, my colleagues have been very patient with me and I am now helping to train this year's graduates to take on my role so I can progress further.

A brief description of my role is to manage the accounts of Sports Direct and its subsidiary companies by performing tasks such as intercompany recharges, accruals and prepayments, as well as producing a profit and loss on a monthly basis. I also produce various reports for numerous departments of the company such as store sales against target. I enjoy the variety of my role as each day I could have a different task which is challenging and keeps the job interesting.

My experience of Sports Direct so far has been great, the office atmosphere is relaxed and everybody is very friendly. Because the office is open plan, you get to meet people other than just in your department, for example there are many of us in the office that play football on a weekly basis which is a good laugh. I think it's a great time to be a part of Sports Direct as they are still growing and there are lots of opportunities if you put the effort in.

I joined Sports Direct as a Human Resources Administrator on 14th February 2011 (how romantic!), with a strong belief that I would not be able to cope with this job… How wrong I was! Over the years I have been promoted to a Human Resources Advisor and now I cannot imagine doing anything else other than my job.

During all those years I have been challenging myself with all the jobs I have been given, currently I am looking after warehouse, transport and Polish stores payroll and HR issues. I have been given a great opportunity to work with a very skilled group of people who helped me to develop myself as well as being able to meet fantastic people. Since May 2013, I have been thrown into the deep end by being asked to look after our stores in Poland, it began with massive stress and ended up with huge success, so I am feeling proud of taking part. This is my biggest achievement so far although I am hoping that this is only a beginning of my ongoing career with SD.

I also had experience within Payroll, so I decided SportsDirect.com was a company I'd like to work for and I took the position within Payroll.

The team was very welcoming and I was really overwhelmed just how big the office is. It’s all opened planned and really surprised just how many people actually work within the building.

I've been here 6 months now and it really does feels like I have been here a lot longer, staff and management are great bunch of guys. The people are really supportive of each other and I've learned a lot within such a small period of time, I look forward to extending this knowledge over time.

The company is really rewarding to the employees, I've already seen this myself even in such a short period of time. This makes me feel very comfortable and eager to prove I'm a willing employee in the years to come. I really do feel at home within the company and part of the furniture, as we say, so let's see what the future holds for me.

For me, the single most beneficial aspect of the Graduate scheme was the vast amount of freedom, control and responsibility given to me and my fellow graduates that allowed us to showcase our individual strengths whilst also working as a team in order to gain a wider perspective and actively create change within the company. Now the Graduate scheme is over, I have successfully secured myself a position as a website executive and continue to learn new skills day after day thanks to the continuous support of the e-commerce team and the ever-changing social society that we live in today.

10 months on.. Little over a year since finishing my last exam at university, I am now responsible for implementing new ways of driving traffic to industry-leading sites, though a range of digital marketing activities - a feat I never thought possible to achieve, in such a short space of time. During my time at Sports Direct, I have received SEO training from world-class agencies and continue to develop my understanding of search engine optimization on a daily basis thanks to the continual support of the e-commerce team. Alongside producing daily content for a range of social channels, I have also expanded my knowledge of inbound marketing strategies and the benefits associated with adopting such an effective approach.
