Fostering a close relationship with our customers, is at the very core of the Sarah Haran Brand. As a small business, we currently have a team of 8 making all of the handbag magic happen, so each and every member of staff is integral to the team.
To continue our "meet the team" series, we have our fabulous Fulfilment Executive Gemma Currens to give us the low down on her career, style and SH inside info!
Hey Gemma, Why did you join SH?
When I discovered SH, I was amazed at the concept of the handbags and I knew I would love to join the company as it continues to grow. It’s exciting in Joy HQ and I’m lucky to have this opportunity to be a part of it.
Before you worked here, what was your background?
I studied Drama and Performance in University while working in hospitality part time. I always had a passion for the arts and getting my degree opened up so many unique opportunities to work with lots of people in the industry I admire as well as travel. As much as I love performance, I knew I had to get another job for stability which led me to working in retail.
I’m a people person so I loved customer interactions but the hours were unpredictable and I never got the freedom to let my creative side out. That’s when I found SH and I love my job!
What’s one thing in your wardrobe you just can’t live without?
My converse! I’ve worn them for years and I guess I just never grew out of that. It is a staple with my outfits at this point. I would love to say a fabulous heel but I am Bambi on ice walking in them.
Do you prefer a mini bag or maxi bag?
Definitely depends on the occasion. My everyday bag is my Poppy as I tend to walk to work so it’s so useful and will have all my essentials in it.
If I’m going out for drinks, I like to take a smaller bag like the Ivy since I’m not taking too much with me.
What’s your favourite SH combo?
This is a difficult one as I see so many amazing combo’s in boxes everyday! I do love a red and navy look with gold hardware. I feel it looks so classy together but still bright and fun.
What do you love most about working at SH?
I have to say our little team at Joy HQ! It’s so refreshing working in a company where everyone is so passionate about the products we sell. We have such a laugh in the office and it’s nice that everyone is able to help one another out when we need it.
I also love when customers are able to visit us and we can show them all the products we have in front of them. It’s always exciting to see all the combos the ladies come up with.
What’s the one thing that brings you joy in life?
My home! I do like to go out with friends and travel but just being home gives me so much comfort. There is nothing better than getting into my comfy pyjamas, have a cup of tea with my partner and pop a movie on.
