Our client is a global licensee of kidswear licenses with a very strong international presence. With offices all over the world including USA, China, Canada, UK, India, they are now looking to strengthen their foothold in UK and Europe. As a result they are looking to make a new appointment to their UK team. They are looking for a UK and Europe Licensor Manager. This is a senior role and aims at managing their entire UK and European licensor base and also at growing their licensor base. 

The ideal candidate will be a well networked individual from the licensing industry ideally with fashion/softlines experience.

You could come from another licensee, or a licensor, or even from a retailer. You will have strong commercial skills, hence a track record in sales/buying/category management or licensing management will be required.

Any management experience would be great, as you will have a small team to mentor and develop.

Personality, drive and ambition will be key. You need to be commercially savvy, an excellent proactive relationship builder, have high energy levels and be internationally focussed.

The role does give plenty of opportunity for international travel into Europe and USA.

My client is open minded about your location. You could be home based in London or anywhere in the UK, BUT you need to be able to commit to at least 2 days a week at their Leicester office, as the full team is based there.

If you have worked in character licensing ( kidswear) in any capacity and you are looking to step into an entrepreneurial role, please apply in confidence.

Package is generous, and is slightly above industry standards.

If this sounds like you please apply in confidence.
