This brand is all about ladies fashion; young, modern, and always premium.

Have you just finished your Fashion degree and are now hoping to secure that first, full time Buying Assistant role? If so then this is a super exciting opportunity you have to apply for!

  • Contribute and support with Sign Off meetings; ensuring sample management is done, comp shops, costings, fabrics, trims and colours are all organised ready for these meetings
  • Understand and accurately manage PO's and sizing
  • Work with studio for imagery, ensuring images are on site and live when stock is delivered
  • Run and work with merchandising and buyer on deliveries
  • Approvals for lab dips, fabrics, trims to be done
  • Keeping file of all approvals and samples for reference
  • Chasing hand overs, fit comments and general approvals or actions required with suppliers & factories
  • Check the accuracy and detail of care and wash labels
  • Action any delays, cancellations or phasing with the team and suppliers/factories

AS THE ASSISTANT BUYER YOU WILL BE:

  • Tenacious
  • Passionate
  • Have a true, genuine love for fashion
  • Wanting to kickstart your career
  • Personable, chatty, friendly
  • Confidence is key!
