In the space of 10 years my client has grown from a luxury men's retailer sold exclusively to high-end concession stores to a global juggernaut in the fashion industry, whilst maintaining their bespoke reputation.

This is a fantastic chance to join an established brand present in over 30 countires with close to 300 stores, but also one which is not resting on their laurels, instead looking to increase their global presence by expanding further into the international market, particularly the highly lucrative Asian fashion world. My client is willing to offer a generous benefits package to a new employee, with a lucrative bonus offered as well as discounts across all products.
