What top tips do you have for Fashion employers?
Working in the fashion industry is extremely competitive because it is so hard to get into. Fashion recruitment agencies will advise companies to be quite flexible in terms of the types of skills you’re looking for when you hire fashion staff and how you might be able to build on those.
Fashion design recruitment agencies at Give A Grad A Go advise that if you are fashion recruiting for graduate jobs in fashion and FMCG based more on the personality of a person than necessarily the skills and academics because you can always train a person up to fit the role you’re looking for if they’ve got the fundamental skills there.
Fashion recruiters will make sure that you’re understanding the salaries that are out there and not taking the candidates looking for entry-level jobs to be taken for granted. Sometimes, entry-level fashion jobs are unpaid or minimum wage. Being wary of the value of a candidate is important for top fashion recruitment agencies to make their clients aware of so that they aren’t taking advantage or undervaluing new starters.
What’s the most important thing to look out for when hiring for a Fashion role?
Our expert fashion recruiters and FMCG recruitment consultants have experience working to find fashion designers, hire a fashion consultant, FMCG sales, fashion staffing and fashion talent. They have some useful top tips for what to look out for when you’re hiring entry-level fashion jobs.
“It is important to look for someone who has the skills for the role. A candidate might have relevant experience that is not necessarily direct. This experience could be found in extracurricular activities such as someone who has done an internship or being a part of fashion society at University. Our FMCG recruitment specialists and fashion employment agency consultants will be able to select candidates with the necessary skills for your company”
“Fashion recruiters need to find someone who is hard-working rather than someone who just wants an easy creative role just because it sounds cool. Roles in fashion aren’t always as creative as they sound, for example, a logistics role in a fashion company may sound very glamorous but could be better suited to a candidate who is more analytical and strategic. The key things you should look out for are the candidate’s qualities: hard-working, dynamic and passionate about their work, and not just the industry”.
What makes a great Fashion graduate?
The fashion industry is a very competitive industry to get into, so employing someone who is willing to work hard from the very start will be beneficial to your company. With fashion recruitment, London is particularly competitive. Give A Grad A Go look for graduates who have shown willingness to work hard and be organized from the get-go and show their passion for the role. It is always a bonus if a candidate has fashion or creative industry experience but remember that it isn’t essential.
What to be wary of when you’re recruiting a Fashion graduate:
“When companies hire for a fashion role, they need to be careful when they’re promoting their company. Candidates might want to work in fashion and think that it will be very glamorous, so as an employer you need to be way of the types of personalities you are hiring. Hard-working is better than fashionable any day in fashion and fmcg recruitment!”
