Our People

Our expert teams are made up of talented people from across the globe. See what makes us different and why they love working for us.

Eleanor Bradley Science Credentialing Manager Research and Development

I joined the company  in February 2014 after completing a Walgreens Boots Alliance funded PhD at the University of Manchester; assessing how peptide technology in the No7 serum range works to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles. I started here as a researcher in the skin science team, and now work as Science Credentialing Manager within the Research and Development team where I promote the fantastic science and technology behind our brands.

My role is very varied, whether it is conducting research into skin ageing and skin health with one of our many global research partners, scientifically testing new technology for brands such as No7 or YourGoodSkin or talking to beauty journalists about our exciting new product launches. I even got to star in some science videos for the website teaching people all about healthy-looking skin!

Thalia Gonzalez Project Manager No7 Cosmetics

I remember I joined the Global Brands team back in 2017 with a mixture of excitement and a bit of concern – as an IT Project Manager I was used to working with external clients and was slightly worried about internal projects not being as challenging or exciting. It’s fair to say I got that very wrong! From my first day in the business I was wowed by the complexity of our projects and the expertise of the teams.

As a Global Brands PM, I get to work with a variety of areas across the business and have the opportunity to lead projects from scoping to launch, learning a lot from my colleagues along the way. No two days are the same and challenges seem to come out of nowhere but there is something incredibly exciting about seeing “my” products on the shelf when I walk past a No7 stand.

If you are thinking about joining the Global Brands team… do it! You won’t regret the opportunity to work with fantastic brands and a brilliant team of experts.

Harry Liu Senior Manager, QESD Global Brands Operations

I joined WBA – Global Brands at 2013 as a Product Integrity Manager for Walgreens Seasonal Business. I was given the opportunity to set up a new team, design the quality process and implement it in Asia. Later on, I was promoted to Senior Manager, QESD at 2015 and now I’m responsible for Seasonal, General Merchandise, Toys, Electronics & GNFR and manage a team over 15 people across Hong Kong and Shanghai office to deliver right quality product to our consumer.

It is an amazing experience to work in Global Brands where you could learn and grow everyday. You could also work with different people in different region and you would be impressed by how diverse it is! The open atmosphere encourages people to share, to talk and to think out of the box. The culture also allows us to focus on driving continuous improvement which is part of our DNA. My pleasure to be part of the business and part of the growth!
