Our Hong Kong based sourcing team manage relationships with our hand picked suppliers, mostly located in Asia, who bring the Cath Kidston brand to life by making sure our high quality products are manufactured and delivered on time.
The team work closely with the UK buying department to find the right supplier to manufacture each item in a collection and negotiate the right deal. They then follow up closely with each supplier to make sure the quality and price of each item is acceptable before placing the order.
The Sourcing team at Cath Kidston is a relatively new team and is quickly starting to see the results of a professional, pro-active approach to our manufacturing partners. With new print mills and factories quickly being identified, this is a very exciting time to be part of the team.
Working in our Sourcing team calls for a strong background in managing factories and a good familiarity with bags and accessories. You’ll need to balance a commercial approach to buying with strong creative judgements and a real eye for quality. Working in Sourcing brings the enormous reward of knowing you are really bringing our products to life and delighting our customers all over the world.
