Job Description

About the department:

We're at the creative, cutting-edge of fashion. As part of the Commercial team, it's our job to develop and manage partnerships with the world's biggest luxury brands. The wider team consists of Business Development, Commercial Strategy, Commercial Planning and Analytics, Visual Merchandising and Account Management.

We collaborate with almost every team across the business, which keeps things varied and exciting! From building relationships with our partners, brands and boutiques to making sure that all of our products look beautiful on our site; we have a big part to play in everything we do. 

The role:

We’re currently developing a bigger function within the Brand Partnership team which will be focused on delivering success across our key brand partners – there is nothing more important to Farfetch than the strength of these relationships.

You will be the primary point of contact for the brands when trading on the platform, responsible for empowering the partners with insights to enhance their performance. We expect this person to work in a team perceived by the brands as professional, with expert knowledge, creative and innovative, and ultimately trusted advisers in the industry.

We’re looking for an analytical, commercially minded, strategic thinker, who is confident managing complicated cross-functional projects and influencing change across senior stakeholders, both internal and external.

What you’ll do:

  • You will maintain outstanding client relationships through effective communications, reporting and problem solving
  • You will combine those relationships with powerful insights to grow stock, be proactive in identifying opportunities to optimize drive results
  • You will work closely with the Supply Analysis function to ensure all recommendations and decisions are underpinned with data insights
  • You will manage complicated cross-functional projects with enterprise luxury supply partners (covering technology, operations, commercial and marketing workstreams)
  • You will complement the work of Brand Partnership Business Development to constantly drive Farfetch’s success with the brand partner
  • You will champion the critical bridge between art and science in the Commercial team

The Ideal Candidate

Who you are:

  • You have excellent planning and organisational skills; expertise to support and drive complex projects
  • You are commercially minded and focused on growth with ability to work towards metrics and targets
  • You have an analytical approach and enjoy solving problems
  • You enjoy working in a fast-paced environment, comfortable with (occasional) ambiguity
  • You have great communication skills and proven track record in building strong working relationships
  • You are a fantastic team fit - tenacity with a smile, real pride in quality of work and an understanding that the ‘how’ you work is just as important!

We can’t wait to receive your application. But before you send it to us, here are some helpful tips to make sure your application is as strong as it can be.

  • Have you set out why this role is a good match for your career aspirations and that you have the skills and experience required? We want you to be as clear about your future ambitions as we are and whilst we encourage people to learn, develop and grow, you will need to hit the ground running. 
  • Have you checked spelling and grammar? We have high standards and you don’t want to miss out because of something as easily correctable as a typo.

We are committed to equality of opportunity for all employees. Applications from individuals are encouraged regardless of age, disability, sex, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief and marriage and civil partnerships.
