Experience of product sourcing, from supplier nomination to post-delivery (including but not limited to maintaining test reports, leading fit sessions to ensure product is fit for purpose and giving comments to suppliers).

You’re able to see the big picture and are adaptable enough to go from strategy and board discussions one day to rolling up your sleeves and analysing samples the next.

You have an understanding of relevant compliance standards (predominantly UK) for our products.

Relevant software knowledge including Creative Cloud (Illustrator, Photoshop) and experience working with and creating product design files including NED Graphics and AVA. 

Preferably 4+ years’ experience in a similar role with some, if not all experience in a children’s brand.

Most importantly you have a great attitude. You’re not daunted, but excited by the prospect of the responsibility you’ll have to grow the business… and you’re serious about happy!

Benefits:

  • A competitive salary.
  • You'll be one of the earliest employees into our team – and a key player in building the brand.
  • Flexible working policy.
  • Free bedding and a staff discount.
  • Company Pension scheme.

We’re still small – help us shape what other perks we could consider!

As a fast growing, privately-backed business, we have big ambitions and are already developing at a swift pace. We encourage creative ideas and people, listening to and supporting each other to meet the company’s objectives. With this approach, we build our internal team with long-term objectives and development in mind.

This role is open to candidate applications for all 3 tiers.   Starting salary reflects the entry tier

  • Technology-literate - native in productivity software (eg MS Office/Google Suite)

  • Digital marketing knowledge - whilst not necessarily “an expert” at the outset, you can show an understanding of the channels involved.  

  • Strong communicator - excellent verbal and written communication skills

  • Confident - able and willing to open conversations with colleagues and clients, never afraid to ask for help or pick up the telephone

  • Analytical - comfortable around numbers, reports, charts and spreadsheets

  • Creative - innovative, and able to produce new ideas and thinking to solve problems

  • Collaborative - always looking to work with others.  This role is not for people that want to hide

  • Commercial ‘nous’ - you understand the business outcomes that our clients want us to achieve for them

The individual will play a central role to the overall vision of developing a go-to children’s homeware and fashion brand. The primary objective is expanding our product offering by identifying key trends in children’s homeware and fashion and taking product ideas from inception to realisation by working closely with freelance designers and suppliers.

We are looking for someone that:

  • Embraces the freedom and challenge of bringing new ideas to the business, actively managing the diversification of our current product offering within the children’s sector.
  • Leads all aspects of our design and product development plans, taking responsibility for the entire development process from design concept to realisation.
  • Works with the MD to create a long-term product strategy which supports the business’ growth ambitions.

Experience of product sourcing, from supplier nomination to post-delivery (including but not limited to maintaining test reports, leading fit sessions to ensure product is fit for purpose and giving comments to suppliers).

You’re able to see the big picture and are adaptable enough to go from strategy and board discussions one day to rolling up your sleeves and analysing samples the next.

You have an understanding of relevant compliance standards (predominantly UK) for our products.

Relevant software knowledge including Creative Cloud (Illustrator, Photoshop) and experience working with and creating product design files including NED Graphics and AVA. 

Preferably 4+ years’ experience in a similar role with some, if not all experience in a children’s brand.

Most importantly you have a great attitude. You’re not daunted, but excited by the prospect of the responsibility you’ll have to grow the business… and you’re serious about happy!

Benefits:

  • A competitive salary.
  • You'll be one of the earliest employees into our team – and a key player in building the brand.
  • Flexible working policy.
  • Free bedding and a staff discount.
  • Company Pension scheme.

We’re still small – help us shape what other perks we could consider!

As a fast growing, privately-backed business, we have big ambitions and are already developing at a swift pace. We encourage creative ideas and people, listening to and supporting each other to meet the company’s objectives. With this approach, we build our internal team with long-term objectives and development in mind.
