About Bravissimo

Bravissimo is an award-winning multi-channel retailer which provides lingerie, swimwear and clothing for women who are D to L cup. They want women to feel confident and amazing, they aim to inspire their customers to celebrate their figures and feel good about themselves.

Bravissimo is not an ordinary shopping experience, their customer facing teams really do change the way their customers feel about themselves. They love to understand they are making a difference and are regularly rewarded with many messages of thanks and emails of appreciation. Their work can be challenging and they have had to adapt all sorts of normal retail and operational processes to cope with offering highly technical and specialised products.

They set themselves high standards and their head office teams are constantly looking to find ways to improve and find solutions to seemingly impossible problems. Bravissimo is a positive working environment where people strive to do their best and where they want people to enjoy their jobs and feel valued and appreciated. Many of their employee's love being part of a company that is both commercially successful and also makes a positive difference in the world. They understand there are many thousands of women in the UK and beyond, who feel good about themselves as a result of Bravissimo and they are keen to communicate this importance to all of their employees.


What is it like to work for Bravissimo

My Manager
My Manager
Bravissimo's Learning and Development Manager is a qualified coach offering support and guidance to all managers, including those who have undergone the development programme. They will help their managers to identify and address their further learning needs, whether that involves further coaching and/or mentoring, or the development of any bespoke courses or learning materials for individuals or groups. Their managers will also be given the opportunity to undergo psychometric personality testing to help them further understand their strengths and development areas.
Wellbeing
Wellbeing
Bravissimo do not feel that wellbeing should sit as an initiative or project on its own, it is just the way they do things on a daily basis. They make time to talk to people in 121s each month, listen to issues and help people try and resolve them where they can so they can be happy in their role. It is really important for them that they get to know their team members really well so that they can spot changes in behaviours and look out for signs that something is not quite right. They encourage their managers to ensure that if they do spot something out of character, even if it is tiny, to informally chat to their team member to check in and if there is something – they offer support from this point onwards where they can.
My Team
My Team
Bravissimo's company Christmas party is their largest paid team event each year, and rather than being led by their managers, this is entirely organised by a committee of volunteers from each department who can design the event for their teams. Summer is their busiest time and as a thank you their Warehouse managers arranged a BBQ and cooked for all of their staff across all shifts. They have also had a Charity Day in their head office this year. This was a day arranged by their charity committee, where a number of events took place across the day, hosted by their Directors and all to raise money for charity, with prizes and food provided. This was an opportunity for their teams to spend some time together, have some fun and give something back.  

Each year they hold a Business Communications Meeting where they bring their Head Office teams and their shop management teams together to review the last year, talk about their plans for the next 12 months, and share ideas and experiences. Also, as an induction event, their MD meets their new starters and describes the Bravissimo journey and brand experience in person, getting to know each new person who joins and listening to their views.
