Zoe Bayliss Wong, Finance Director at Depop
I’m not a morning person so I’ll always try and get up as late as possible, normally around 8am. During the week, I’ve got my morning routine nailed to 20 minutes depending on whether I can decide what to wear. I’m obsessed with skincare though, so I’ll always spend time doing a full cleanse and moisturise routine every morning; it currently has about six steps in it.
I catch up on the news whilst I get ready and, if there’s space on the tube, I’ll try and get 10 minutes of reading time in. I’m currently reading Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup by John Carreyrou which is every bit as scandalous as it sounds. I’ll be at my desk by around 9am, where I’ll have a green juice and a turmeric tea to start the day.
I’ve worked with retail and consumer goods companies for a decade now and my job at Depop is my favourite by far. Depop is a mobile marketplace, popular with young creatives across the world and known for being a source of unique items and fashion finds. I’ve been there for over 4 years and have held a variety of roles as the company has grown. As the Finance Director, essentially my role is to make sure that we’re in control of our resources, we’re compliant and we’re spending – and making – money in the best way.
