Welcome to the second in our series of 'Considered' events by Hunt Communications and Araminta Marketing; Considered Careers.
Changes to what people want from their careers have been in the making for a long time, but events of the last year have accelerated peoples values and priorities when it comes to how they work, where they work and what they expect from their employers. As communications specialists, we see that internal communications has become more important that ever before when it comes to attracting and retaining high quality employees and freelancers. This weeks power panel will discuss how employers, employees and freelancers will approach how they work moving forward.

Victoria Prew, Co-Founder & CEO at HURR Collective
Victoria Prew is the co-founder and CEO of HURR, the UK’s first peer-to-peer wardrobe rental platform. Offering luxury fashion to women who prefer to rent rather than buy, HURR was deemed the ‘Airbnb of Fashion’ by Forbes in 2019.
Headquartered in London, HURR aims to address an underserved market of women who want access to the latest trends, without the commitment of purchase. Prew is the first to tap into the growing market, spearheading rental fashion and shifts in millennial behaviour.
Prew studied Real Estate, launching her own technology product before training as a Chartered Surveyor. The entrepreneur identified an opportunity born from two complementary movements: the rise of sustainable fashion and the rental revolution. The website showcases an unlimited ‘virtual wardrobe’ for luxury rentals, including curated edits, the latest trend pieces and celebrity wardrobes. HURR carries over £1 million+ of inventory and is showing no signs of slowing down. Partnerships with Eco-Age and TRAID are putting HURR on the map as a pioneer of the fashion tech sector.
