Let's work together

Fancy making your mark on one of the UK's fastest growing fashion retailers? We're an entrepreneurial, future-focused team who look to create value in everything we do. Oh, and we’re a friendly bunch too, so expect socials and plenty of perks!

As a young company, we're constantly innovating and adapting, which is why we're always looking for fresh talent to join our superstar team of creatives, thinkers and doers. You can get the lowdown on how and why we launched SilkFred here and find our current vacancies here - but first, more about work life with us.

Why SilkFred?

A career at SilkFred will give you a unique opportunity to help evolve the inner workings of a successful startup. We love what we do and believe in nurturing people who share our growth mindset. Industry experience is necessary for some roles but generally we look at approach, mindset and capability first.

We believe in strong cross-functional teams, which means you may have greater responsibilities than you would do in a more traditional company - and you would need to flex as the company continues to scale. Our goal is that anyone who joins our team gets to do their best work.

About our team

We're a friendly team who value loyalty, a strong work ethic and commitment. You can read more about our company values here.

You don't have to know a lot about fashion to work here but caring deeply about creating the best experience for our customers and brand partners is a must.

We're independent thinkers and have built SilkFred based on data and what our customers love, rather than the conventional wisdom of our wider industry.

In turn, we prize proactivity. Our team members are ones who can surface opportunities, execute well and shape their own path.
