You will join a family-owned and operated business who trade in a sector driven by passion, technical excellence and of course, brand identity.

You've established a career within the technical garment industry, ideally with experience of high-performing and hard-wearing products, built to last for a demanding customer base. You have experience of sourcing and broader supply chain management, but perhaps most importantly you have the upwards potential to develop into broader operational leadership, responsible for end-to-end global logistics right from material sourcing to customer delivery. You're hard-working, passionate, inquisitive and innovative, what you do is your passion - and this shows through your determination and commitment to the right result for the business.

The successful candidate will upon proving themselves be appointed to the board of directors and will receive an appropriate share award without any personal financial contribution. Starting salary for the appointment will be in the range of £50,000 to £55,000 with a discretionary performance-related bonus taking the first year earnings potential up to approximately £70,000.
