Online fashion giant has been praised for wanting to attract local people to the business.

Watford MP Dean Russell made the comments when he visited ASOS in Leavesden to learn about the retailers’ new plans.

He said: “It was good to hear from the new director of customer care about the diverse range of roles at the site and the desire to attract local people when new opportunities arise, as well as to learn how ASOS are focusing on becoming more environmentally friendly and inclusive.”


The company, which currently provides more than 300 jobs to the local economy, has a sustainability strategy focussing on: net zero, circularity, transparency and diversity and inclusion.

ASOS will also deliver a human rights strategy later this year.

The fashion brand’s new director of customer care Daryl Wilkes said: “Our dedicated team helps tens of thousands of customers each week.

“By investing in the site and creating career opportunities right across our business, we’re committed to making it a place where people love to work.”
