Job Description

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for an established Head of Design to join this leading multi-product retailer, to be based within its East Midlands head office. Responsible for the ladies non-clothing offering you will cover areas such as Lingerie, Nightwear, Footwear and Accessories. You will lead a team of around 10-15 designers, offering both motivation and creative direction. This is already a successful area of this retailer's business, however there is real scope to now increase the product range and bring in more trend-led and fashion forward pieces. The successful candidate will be: * Currently working at Design Manager or Head of Design level, ideally covering non-clothing product areas, however those with an apparel background will also be considered. * Confident leading a team to success and will already possess strong management experience. * Highly knowledgeable and have worked in a fashion forward and trend-led business previously. It is essential that you are up to date with the latest fashion trends and are able to translate these across the non-clothing category. This is a rare and exciting opportunity for a senior candidate, currently working at Design Manager or Head of Design level, to join a well known and successful retailer during an exciting phase of growth and development. If you're from a ladies apparel or accessories background and are keen to take on a new challenge where you can utilise your industry knowledge, creative flair and design experience - this could be for you!
