Part Time
We are looking for someone who has:
*Experience in swim and RTW/ resortwear with a minimum of 2 years' experience
*Experience within a luxury brand preferred but not required
*Strong experience within fitting: particularly with RTW
*Swim is very important, but not essential

What will the role entail?
Day-to-day duties will include ensure products fit true to my clients DNA and to design/ development requirements. You will create the initial size spec when necessary and lead fit sessions to ensure design, development and production teams are aware and in agreement of changes needed style by style. On occasion, you may need to measure samples pre and post fitting and to write up fit comments for factory use or help guide team on particularly difficult styles.

In addition of the above skills, our ideal candidate will have a cv that demonstrates:
*Diplomatic and articulate communicator
*Excellent organisational skills
*Ability to work under pressure, in a fast-paced environment whilst maintaining a high level of accuracy

This is a freelance role to cover up to 2 days per week (max) in September, with a lull at the beginning of October, but a very busy end of October, so I'm looking for someone who's flexible with regards to days etc. The ideal candidate would be able to fit in the days my client needs but not depend on the stability of this work, as this is the first time they will have a garment tech in their business, so they will need to work you into their product cycle.
