WATCH DESIGNER, MIDLANDS
Industry-leading remuneration package
Already one of this nation’s most successful distributors of watch brands, our client’s corporate sights remain set on securing ever greater market share. At every level throughout this profitable business, there is a constant hankering for increasing return on investment, while ensuring that all merchandise is right for their consumers time and time again.
Uppermost in their minds currently is their mission to identify a further talented Watch Designer who can take ultimate responsibility for developing an established company-owned watch brand name.
It is essential that you be already attuned to the UK watch and jewellery market, with experience of instigating commercially-successful initiatives to develop a complete watch brand range.
Accounts already supplied include Multiple Retail Jewellers, E-Commerce, Travel Retail, Departmental Store majors, and equally-valued loyal High Street Independents.
You need to be highly IT literate and fluent in all product design and development software, such as Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, Sketchbook Pro and Rhinoceros, to name but a few.
Personally very trend-aware, you relish the fact that your past collective endeavours have chimed with trade buyer needs and generated purchasing excitement.
Working with an established brand such as this, you will use your analytical skills to quickly identify perennial best sellers, which you will embellish and upgrade to make them even more competitive and essential to stock. You will also research avenues of brand and product development yet to be capitalised upon, which can deliver meaningful incremental growth.
Naturally and consciously detail-oriented and meticulous when it comes to quality control, you will encourage your trusted supply chain manufacturing partners overseas to return prototypes promptly so that they can be signed off by the UK team and launched to an expectant customer base.
This business is rightly well-regarded when it comes to career development. Many brand executives have developed their personal careers long term within this business, and the same can confidently be expected for the successful new recruit.
An excellent supportive team and a finely-tuned and responsive infrastructure already exist; the missing piece in the jigsaw is a visionary watch designer who will enable the label to achieve its maximum commercial potential. Could this be you?
This is a terrifically exciting corporate environment in which to further your design career. What are you waiting for? Send your CV and portfolio to Jolyon here at JML, where it will be personally reviewed, as always, with the utmost care and confidentiality.
