It’s an exciting time to be a designer at Boden. The clothing business founded back in 1991 is now a global brand. As our customers’ needs change our range is reflecting their desire to feel confident, connected and fashionable.

We now have a maternity cover for a Woven’s Design Manager to help us develop a balanced range that is commercial, customer focused, innovative and on brand. We’re looking for someone who can manage the Buying and Design relationship to ensure the balance of creativity and commerciality, someone who is organised and can lead a team of designers while also being a strong support to the Head of Design. You’ll be up to speed on competitor activity and fast to launch key looks and trends in a way that’s appropriate to our brand.

To get the job you’ll need 6-8 years’ relevant experience and a demonstrable track record with a great brand.   You’ll also need to convince us that you understand our core customer and our brand and that you can deliver ranges that move us in the right direction in our different markets. You’ll also need to be a talented people manager, committed to developing your team to ensure that targets are met and individuals feel motivated.

If you can tick all those boxes and think you can tell us “what makes Boden Boden” we'd like to hear from you.
