Anouk van Veen - Returns admin


How long have you been working at My Jewellery?

I’ve been at My Jewellery for the past 2.5 years

What are some of your everyday tasks?

Crediting all the returns processed by our warehouse - we receive digital packaging slips, which means we can easily process them, though some packages require a little more detective work. Occasionally, our customers don’t leave their contact details, in which case we liaise with our customer service team to determine the arrangements that were made with the customer. You can really tell that we’re growing and becoming more international, because we’re getting more and more international orders, particularly from Germany.

Working hard to process all of your return orders! I also get a lot of job satisfaction from being part of such a fun team. I really appreciate the amount of passion everyone here shares for the company and their job, and the teamwork between every department is great too. You can really tell that everyone enjoys working here and truly puts all their effort into making the company the best it can be!
