Editorial Department
 

At editorial we live and breathe fashion. We are at the epicentre of the industry, equally global and local, and as likely to cover the latest trade fairs and fashion weeks as we are to share unique local insights via our network of international journalists.

We are reporters at heart with a keen eye on the zeitgeist, monitoring the trends and global movements that impact fashion businesses and our readers. Our independent editorial team will go the extra mile to publish the most relevant content with a true global perspective.

Working in the editorial department at FashionUnited is to be part of an innovative and fast-paced environment where no two days are the same. Our daily readers of 1.5 million fashion professionals count on us to be fully informed every day of the week. If you’re a keen observer, wizard with words, independent and bold, then FashionUnited could be a great fit.


Sales Department
 

The sales team is about people. We listen, we connect, we build relationships. We currently work with over 80% of the world's leading fashion companies and connect them to professionals looking for their next move within the industry. We are in sales, but we are not sales people. We are listeners, problem solvers and media advisors all in one. As this would be too lengthy for our business cards, we go by ‘consultant’.

We believe the magic lies in building relationships and offering innovative HR and marketing solutions. We listen to our partners’ needs, offer personalised updates about the market and create customised strategic HR media plans.

Do you want to get better at what you do every day? Come join our team of international, world class professionals. We are not looking for another sales person, we are looking for people who know how to listen and how to connect. Someone who can translate needs into detailed media plans. A strategic thinker with a can-do mentality. Are you this person? Then we invite you to the champions league and work with the world's greatest fashion companies every day.


Customer Support
 

Being a member of the support team means you love to help! We value service and our international team of professionals is there to assist our sales colleagues and clients across our platform of 30 global websites in 8 languages and make sure everything runs like clockwork, like jobs and banners appearing timely online. We are where the magic happens, and at the start of the journey where exciting careers begin.

As the crucial link between our teams, you’ll find us in the middle of the sales floor. This makes it easy to communicate with everyone. What is a typical day at Customer Support? We don’t have a standard answer. You could start your day by placing a banner for a French tradeshow online. After lunch you might post a vacancy for a well-known retailer in London. Assisting the IT team in finding a solution for a key account partner in Germany could be how your day ends.

Working in a customer-focussed manner is at our heart. Therefore, we speak our clients’ languages, who can count on us for support within 24 hours (though usually faster). Updating the sales team and providing customised client reports is part of our responsibilities too. So is making sure that our finance department receives clients’ sales orders that we create.

Sounds like fun? If you are precise, like to work under pressure and if relationship management is your true passion, you might be a great addition to our team!


IT Department
 

We are innovators, creators and problem solvers. As the engine of FashionUnited we make sure the platform is running smoothly 24/7 and that customers receive top-notch solutions. How do we do this?

The international FashionUnited platform was created from scratch and everyday we work to improve its functioning, all while using the latest technologies and frameworks.

We design and develop the best user experience, both internal and external. We provide the highest performance webpages possible, create to the point reports and tailor-made integrations, for which our clients praise us.

We take our responsibilities seriously, but we meet new challenges with a creative, innovative spirit. Above all, we love to invent.
