Hi, my name is Chris Thayanukulvat and I am just coming up to my 1 year anniversary at Wiggle. I work in the Buying and Merchandising Department as a Trade Assistant, and one of my greatest achievements in my first year has been working closely with our suppliers to improve the availability of our products on site.
I know how frustrating it can be when shopping, you find the right product that will be perfect, you can’t wait for it to arrive but you don’t get any further than the “buy now” button because it’s out of stock! I am continuing to improve our availability, and if a product is not available to us for whatever reason, then I will make every effort to supply an honest update as to when the product will be available again. I am glad that I am able to contribute to the Wiggle Way in sharing a love of sport.
As much as I enjoy working at Wiggle I love the buzz that comes at the end of the working day when you know you can get kitted up, meet your friends and experience the benefits that sports can provide us. For me it is quality time spent with friends, it’s a great release for stress, and I love the natural high that a good work out gives us, I have found that getting out on my bike takes me to some amazing places which I wouldn’t have come across otherwise.
Share the Good Stuff
I love working at Wiggle because sport is my passion, I have always enjoyed taking part in sport and even studied it at college and university. My main hobbies are Running, Climbing and more recently Mountain Biking, in the past I have also enjoyed taking part in football, volleyball, boxing, golf, snowboarding and longboarding. I am lucky enough to work for Wiggle where I have the opportunity to work directly with some of the market leading Running Shoe manufacturers. This is exciting for me as I am able to view, test and recommend products to other running enthusiast’s. It is great to be able to see the latest products and technologies before they are released and tell my running partners what to look out for or try when they need their next pair.
This year I have also enjoyed being given the chance to work with our suppliers in selecting the products which we presented at the Brighton Marathon Expo this year, it was a great opportunity for us to share what is new and exciting to Running with fellow runners and get their opinions and listen to what they would like to see in the future.
