Are you a retail star?

Do you work in retail? Do you love what you do and exude passion and ambition? If so, the 2016 Worldpay everywoman in Retail Ambassador Programme would like to hear from you.

Women make up most of the retail workforce, yet they hold just 5 per cent of the senior decision-making roles in the sector. The Retail Ambassador initiative aims to encourage women to become future retail leaders, as well as celebrating current success.

Maxine Benson, co-founder of everywoman, which provides products and services that support the advancement of women in business, explains: “This programme champions exceptional women whether at the start of their career or at the top of their game and we are proud to shine a light on them.”

Jo Baker, chief finance officer Worldpay UK, a leading payments company, continues: “I’m looking forward to hearing the inspirational stories of some of the women who are excelling in this dynamic sector and celebrating their success on a national stage.”

The deadline for applications is 9 May, so get your entry in now.

Last year’s Ambassadors were women from all over the country, of all ages and with different skill sets and roles, ranging from management in national multiple retailers including ASDA and Superdrug to the founders of innovative boutique brands. You can enter yourself, or be nominated by someone else, and it’s free to enter here.

The chosen Ambassadors will be announced at an awards ceremony and dinner at The Langham, London on 13th September.
