Join us as Senior PLM and you’ll lead the product line planning and creation process for Clarks Originals. Responsible for overseeing the new season – from signing off concepts through to final development and commercialisation – you’ll ensure we build a global product line that delivers our brand strategy and commercial ambition. Coming to us with a wealth of experience, we’ll look to you as our in-house consumer expert in the product creation process. Reflecting on the seasonal brand concept journey and previous seasons, you’ll bring together consumer, market and brand expertise as you create detailed and inspiring product design brief. An excellent leader, you’ll inspire and lead the Product Line Management team to deliver excellence in all that they do. Join us in this exciting, crucial role and you’ll ensure every product we create is a success; delivering c.200 lines per season.
A bit about you
Joining us with plenty of experience working in brand development for global brands (ideally within apparel/footwear), you’ll have plenty of cross-functional network building experience within a matrix organization. Extensive knowledge of footwear and shoemaking – from current trends to construction – is vital, as is thorough knowledge of development and sourcing requirements. Balancing creative and analytical thinking, you’ll use your comprehensive global product line strategy to ensure our products are aligned with our brand strategy and meet global customer needs. Challenging products and continuously seeking improvement, you’ll have the tenacity to make sure that new designs are 100% right – taking pride in all that you do.
Life with us
Every 60 seconds, 105 pairs of Clarks shoes are sold globally. That makes us a £1.6 billion business and a truly worldwide brand. We now have some 15,000 employees across 75 different countries – everywhere from Europe to the Americas. Despite being the world’s biggest everyday footwear brand (by sale volume), we’re still majority owned by the Clarks family and based in Street, Somerset – where the Clarks business began. Street is the nerve centre of our business, driving growth and the whole Clarks success story.
As well as a rewarding career, development opportunities and a competitive salary, you’ll also enjoy a generous holiday allowance and the opportunity to join the company pension scheme.
We love hearing from great people
