Currently  in the midst of renovating their South Coast head office to allow for the expansion needed, Fat Face offer a great atmosphere in which to work at pace, within a volume driven lifestyle brand. With huge plans and projections for the coming year, international growth with the opening of new stores and introduction of non UK e-commerce sites as well as the demand for new UK stores….the company is one of the best performing retailers of recent years.

Established in 1988 by two British skiers 26 years ago, fashion lifestyle brand FatFace was born out of a passion for life and the outdoors. Located just over 1 hour from Central London and a stone’s throw from the beach, FatFace’s ‘Fatbase’ is a hive of creativity and set in a great place for not only an exciting and rewarding career, but also enjoying life outside the 9 to 5. Committed to producing well-designed quality clothing, footwear and accessories for men, women and kids; FatFace has become a nationwide retailer with over 200 stores in the UK and Ireland.


So what would it be like to work for FatFace? The attitude and personality at the FatFace HO is a very laid back culture, living by ‘work hard play hard’ along with plenty of passion and ambition.

Socially, the teams spend a lot of time together whether it’s a BBQ at the local beach or a drink in the local pub The Ship. ‘Brand camp’ is an exciting team weekend away that gives everybody time to relax together, catch up and most of all have fun! The venue changes each time and the last one was in Cornwall, so who knows where they will head to next year!


‘Fatbase’ located in Havant, is accessible from many locations in the South of England, with fast and reasonably priced transport links as well as air connections via Southampton airport, only 30 mins away. Just 1 hour 15 mins from London Waterloo, this is less time spent travelling across certain parts of London in rush hour (and the scenery is much nicer too.)


The area of Hampshire offers something for everyone, with lots to do locally and diverse areas to live. It caters for singles, couples and/or families looking for a lifestyle change and also for those looking for somewhere to let their hair down after work and at the weekend! Whether it be a family day out with the kids to Peppa Pig World, a visit to the seaside at Hayling Islands Blue Flag Beach or a night out with friends in Gunwharf Quays – this area has everything covered!

FatFace are looking to fill a number of newly created opportunities across various levels in Buying, Merchandising and Design:



 At FatFace the Buying team is responsible for developing and sourcing our fantastic ranges. Everything they do is designed to be loved by all our customers; they ensure we use the best quality materials with exceptional finishes and attention to detail. To do this, they work with our designers to choose the season’s shapes, colour pallets and styles, work with our suppliers to ensure quality and value, while keeping one eye on the competition. So, when our ranges reach our customers, the colours are great, the quality is amazing, the price is right, and most importantly our customers love it.


 If the Merchandising team ensure that we have the right product, in the right place at the right time, then it’s up to the distribution team to have the right item, in the right quantity, in the right condition to the right customer. Our distribution and supply chain team manages the flow and storage of our fantastic product from our global supply base to our stores. Responsible for inventory management, transportation, warehousing, and the organisation and planning of these activities, it doesn’t get much faster paced than this.
