Operations Director - London

Ref: 262 Date Posted: Sunday 01 Oct 2023

If you want to help create, build and scale the operations that will change the face of retail fashion then this could be just what you’ve been waiting for.

The foundations are in place and the business has made great headway. So yes, the ideas, processes, business plan and initial investment are all there, but what is needed is a leader of the operations piece, someone to take ownership of operations from customer service, fulfilment, logistics, warehouse, payments & fraud, and drive this forward to scale globally.

Do you enjoy rolling up your sleeves, involved in growing teams from where they are now, circa 50 with 6 direct to reports, to 80+ in the next year, and you do it all with a smile?

If you can say yes and have a track record of delivering end to end operations functions within retail, including e-commerce technology systems, then we think you will be just a little bit excited about what we have to say.

Founded circa 5 years ago, their founder saw a gap in the retail market through his own personal experience of shopping and his background in engineering. He saw a way to bring the online and inline retail experience closer together to create the next generation for retail and the future of shopping. They call it “reinventing retail”.

Pre Series A investment (£3 million) is now in place, Series A is planned for later this year.

There are big plans afoot. Global plans, adapting a tried and tested business model that’s already created unicorns in other retail sectors. This will be big – their advocates and investors include ex-CEOs and directors of AO.com, Farfetch, LVMH, Uber, fashion journalists and customers of the service, all queuing up to be part of the next big thing in retail.

For fast growing start-up these guys are very serious. They recognise that having the right talent onboard will make or break this project.

I know you’re motivated by the content of the role and the opportunity and certainly not just in it for the money, but it all helps as they say, and you will be rewarded with a very competitive basic salary, a tangible share in their success in the form of equity, along with the general work benefits you’d expect at this phase of their journey.
