Head of Design & Trends – Non-Food Consumer Goods

Office Based – North West

£Competitive Salary + Benefits

Due to a substantial period of growth an exciting opportunity has now arisen at one of the UK’s fastest growing product sourcing and distribution businesses across licensed, branded and own label consumer goods. The company is striving to continue their upward trend of growth in the coming years and through a restructure, has identified the need to recruit a Head of Design and Trends to manage the existing design team.

Our client supplies many of the UK’s major retailers varying from Grocers to Discount Stores as well as specialist toy retailers and the major multiples. With an in house design team and product development specialists, they have built a reputation of working with their customers to provide a bespoke solution to their requirements. This business is extremely fast paced, and focused on increasing their sales throughout the UK and Europe, with their highly successful senior management team at the forefront of this ambition. 

As Head of Design you will ensure the business is leading the way with fresh designs that capture the attention of the market. Working with the sales team you will consult with customers to understand their needs, support in the presentation of concepts and ensure a seamless working relationship. You will adapt quickly, telling the story of multiple customers through your creations by using divergent thinking.

A successful applicant will have an excellent knowledge of the ‘non-food’ consumer goods industry and a genuine passion for design and trends. Man management experience is not essential for this role however, you must have an understanding and experience of dealing with senior members internally and externally.

This role will suit an experienced Head of Design but I’m also keen to speak with Designers who are looking to progress their career and take on a new challenge.

Strategic entrepreneurial candidates with the ability to think out of the box will thrive in this fast pace company. To be considered for the position please call Sam Gray on 01132054970, alternatively send your CV to sam.gray@ceselection.com

Please note, direct and third party applications will be forwarded to Clear Edge Search & Selection
