About: Sahara creates clothes for the individual, not the crowd. With each piece created using luxurious natural fabrics and traditional techniques, our collections provide an antidote to the culture of fast fashion.

From our colourful, creative prints to our travel-inspired style ethos, our exceptional service, to our friendly, fun-loving teams, Sahara provides a retail experience like no other independent fashion brand. We support one another, we strive for creative excellence and we believe in collaboration more than we do in hierarchy.

We offer a competitive salary, a generous holiday allowance, access to exclusive perks and discounts via Perkbox, a generous staff discount, a creative, friendly working environment in a beautiful office space filled with natural daylight; plus all the good stuff like fruit, great coffee and Prosecco every Friday!

The Assistant to the Production team is a pivotal role in the organisation of the Production department to drive and elevate the quality of production. It is an important and a diverse role; one which requires both excellent organisational and communication skills.

As a person you will have a discerning eye with acute attention to detail. You will be calm under pressure and have the capacity to work to tight deadlines without compromising on quality. Naturally you will be a great team player with strong interpersonal skills.

Whilst not exhaustive your responsibilities will include:

  • Responsible for setting up season style information onto our system (Genesis) and ensuring all information is up to date e.g. product costings.
  • Setting up and maintenance of season pricing sheets with style usage, fabric price and factory prices, ensuring correct exchange rate/duty etc.
  • Responsible for collating factory orders and updating this information onto Genesis.
  • Tracking and chasing of samples.
  • Responsible for running reports and preparing orders for factories.
  • Management of new season samples- booking in and tagging.
  • Assisting with the organisation of production samples, liaising with the external warehouse and logistics provider.
  • Maintenance of the sampling schedule e.g. tracking sampling costs.
  • Responsible for ordering trims and issuing label stock-detailing style codes to factories.
  • Creation of style books for both retail stores and HO.
  • General ad hoc tasks to support the wider production team.

Who we're looking for:

Along with at least 2-3 years' experience, you will be a self-starter by nature; curious and asking the right questions whilst at the same time sharing your own suggestions and know-how. You will have a strong knowledge of production within fashion and a solid understanding of the design and manufacturing process. You will be hungry to develop within the role and soak up all that is thrown your way. Who you are inside is just as important to us as what skills you can bring to our team; we are on the hunt for someone enthusiastic, positive, creative & passionate with exacting attention to detail and not unlike Sahara, someone truly unique who wants above all to help make a difference.

What we offer:

A competitive salary, generous holiday allowance, access to exclusive perks and discounts with Perkbox, a generous staff discount, a fun, friendly working environment in a beautiful office space, complimentary yoga classes plus media/creative evening networking talks and events as part of Interchange Camden’s business community.

Who we are:

Since 1992, Sahara’s collections have been inspired by global travel and adventure. Sahara remains a successful, independent, creative thinking, family-run business with a growing portfolio of 14 own-brand stores, a rapidly expanding e-Commerce store & over 120 wholesale stockists. The company employs over 100 people across the UK & their HQ is based in leafy Primrose Hill, NW1.

 Sahara is passionate about working with great people & building inspired, creative teams. We spend a LOT of time at work, so we know how important it is to enjoy your working day. We promote a friendly, non-corporate environment at our HQ; we work hard, we are passionate, and we love to have a laugh. We are an independent company too so we are lucky that don’t have anyone else to answer to, which sometimes allows us more creative freedom than we would experience otherwise. We support one another, we strive for creative excellence and we believe in collaboration more than we do in hierarchy.
