It’s time to get hustlin’.

The Iconic Senior Graphic Designer – Menswear & Sports

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to work behind the scenes of arguably the biggest online fashion retailer in Australia? Well, if you’re an experienced graphic designer with an affinity for men’s fashion and sportswear, wonder no more! Based in Sydney (but remote for now) this senior-level contract position is an integral part of the The Iconic’s ‘Creative, Content & Social Team’ – a self-professed loud and bustling bunch who strive to push the boundaries of fashion content on the daily. Harness your creative and digital skills and brand vision and reinvigorate your love for working in a team while receiving top-notch benefits (including working in a pet-friendly office – could it get any better?)

Fashionata Wholesale and Admin Assistant

With labels like Ginia and DKNY on their portfolio, Rosedale-based fashion wholesale company, Fashionata, is on the up-and-up and it’s looking for a Sales and Admin Assistant to join the team. When not doing your own thang, you (the lucky candidate) will be working closely with Fashionata’s Brand Managers and Logistics Coordinator in this junior-level, full-time position. To be said lucky candidate, you’ll need to have customer service skills (the kind I could never muster), sales support or administration experience, a knack for organisation and a sharp eye for detail. You also need to be friendly and reliable and be ready to grow, baby, grow ’cause Fashionata is embarking on a journey of global expansion. 

Hanes Brands Australasia Head of Marketing – Bonds

Bonds, an Aussie icon like no other, is looking for a Head of Marketing to join its Melbourne office. The role is a seven-month maternity leave contract ideal for the experienced marketer. The gig is focused on managing “The Brand, People, Projects, Time & Stakeholder” and so it requires amazing leadership and project execution skills. Being a boss at relationship management and having a great understanding of the Australian retail landscape is also super crucial for the role. If you think you tick all (or even just some) of the boxes go ahead and apply, why not? You get to work for an Aussie household name which, might I add, provides some serious employee perks.

H&M IT Specialist

Love tech and fashion? Well, this could be the gig for you. Global fashion powerhouse H&M is on the hunt for a full-time IT Specialist based in Sydney. To be successful you’ve gotta have relevant education and work experience, superb Microsoft Office front and backend skills, and experience and/or knowledge within various realms of IT that I can’t possibly understand enough to translate to this piece of text (hey, at least that’s one less potential applicant on your hitlist). If you get the job you’ll be an integral part of the digital journey of one of the world’s biggest fashion brands and spend every workday in a fun, energetic environment that encourages growth and continued development. Go for it, I say!

Country Road Group Head of Marketing & Digital – Witchery

Now’s your chance to briefly walk the halls of the acclaimed Country Road Group, as it’s looking for someone to take charge of Witchery’s marketing and digital team for a maternity leave cover stint. If you’ve got a knack for digital marketing and eCommerce (and by knack I mean senior experience), then why not apply to work for Witchery, a household name for all things sophisticated and feminine. The Country Road Group boasts of its competitive remuneration packages and generous discounts for all their brands – Country Road, Trenery, Witchery, Mimco and David Jones. It also hints that there are career progression and development opportunities, meaning there’s a chance you can stay on board longer than anticipated. 

Culture Digital Agency Digital Advertising Manager

Calling all uni grads – Culture Digital is looking for a full-time junior member to join its growing team. This fashion-centric agency has worked with names you know and love: Pandora, The Iconic, Sister Studios, Pared Eyewear, and even us! Photoshop and writing skills are a must for this multifaceted job. In your day-to-day, you’ll be expected to design and create advertising material, write copy, dabble in social media management and report on data and analytics. If you’re based in Melbourne and this sounds up your alley, hit the apply button stat.

Brand Collective Part-time Graphic Designer – Elka Collective

Elka Collective is a Melbourne-based label that oozes timeless sophistication. Part of the umbrella company Brand Collective, which also owns brands such as Hush Puppies, Clarks, Volley and Superdry, Elka Collective is looking for a part-time graphic designer to create brand graphics in an eight-month contract. If you’re a whiz with pixels, confident with the Adobe suite and pride yourself on creativity, this position might be calling your name. The perks? Not only will you receive discounts and training and development opportunities, but you’ll also receive free fresh fruit and flu vaccines. Now that’s true care.

Carla Zampatti Retail Management Coordinator

Level up your retail job and join the ranks of Carla Zampatti in this Sydney-based Retail Management Coordinator position. Elegant and elevated, Carla Zampatti is one of Australia’s most well-known designers and its legacy is impressive – the label was started in 1965 and is still thriving today. In this full-time position, you’ll take charge of the visual merchandising in its Sydney stores, manage clearance stock and assist the National Retail Manager in daily operations. Experience in visual merchandising and retail management is essential, as is a love for fashion. 

Elk eCommerce Manager

No, this isn’t a position for avid online shoppers (I would snap that up ASAP). Instead, Elk is looking for a kickass eCommerce Sales Manager to join its team in Melbourne’s northern suburbs. You’ll be helping to grow this ethical and sustainable label by improving online customer experience and hitting sales targets. The best fit for the job will have at least three years of experience in a similar role and geek out over excel, data and analytics. If KPIs, Shopify and UX make you drool, then it’s time to hit apply.
