Head of Property & Design. Luxury Fashion House.
More often than not, when we take a brief from a retail client, part of the requirement is for us to find thick skinned people who can deal with hot headed buyers and brand managers. Not so with this company.
Whilst it's a high-octane environment full of creative people bursting with ideas, the one thing they don't support is divas! The work ethic is one of working hard as a collective, supporting each other and having some fun whilst you're at it! They strive for excellence and work hard to constantly evolve their products, brand and customer experience. They are a leading omni- channel luxury retailer and have an exceptionally good property team with robust processes and procedures in place.
The head of the property team is a natural manager. The team are given lots of opportunity to broaden their skill sets and take on new roles. The manager facilities and encourages instead of dictating and restricting. We left with the impression that the manager, along with the rest of the group, were all thoroughly pleasant people, with a passion for fashion and a huge amount of talent.
The current Head of Property & Real Estate manages comes from an architectural background. She manages a team of 22 people and covers Design, Project Management, Construction and FM.
This vacancy is a maternity cover contract that will run for 12months with one month notice either side. A full handover will be given for the first 2 to 4 weeks of the contract. As we need this person to hit the ground running, we ned applications from individuals who have already worked in fashion and managed design, project management and property management teams. Salary £100K- £120K.
Luxury retail and experience or a similar role is a pre-requisite for this role. We are happy to look at people from a wide range of property backgrounds including architecture, interiors, surveying and construction.
