Brogues have never been cooler. Smart shoes are no longer just for the office and people are wearing casual shoes to work. Well-built, well-designed footwear has never been more desirable. And you could argue that men’s fashion has never been bigger. Men all around the world are getting excited about quality shoes with British heritage. Who fits that brief better than Britain’s most iconic footwear brand? We’ve nearly two centuries of shoemaking excellence under our belts. And right now, we’re on an amazing, fast-paced global journey. We’re busy mixing our experience and expertise with ever-changing market trends to design quintessential quality shoes for modern-day men. It’s an exciting time for Clarks and the most exciting time for talented designers to join us.
About the roles
From colour to materials to modernisations of classic styles, the men’s footwear marketplace has changed over the last ten years. And the products we offer at Clarks’ Mens have evolved dramatically. As a designer, versatility and variety will be at your fingertips as you create stylish product designs and prototypes for our seasonal ranges. We’re looking for designers of all levels who can glide their handwriting seamlessly through styles to bring fresh and individual, designs every season; designs that challenge us and go on to be global best-sellers.
Designers drive us forward. That’s why we invest in innovation to ensure that they’ve all the best tools, techniques and facilities around to create brilliant designs. Many places are just starting to use 3D technology and rapid prototyping now – we’ve been doing it for the last ten years. And with expert last specialists on site, product development, trends and range teams working next to you, it really is all here. With incredible facilities all under one roof here, everyday you’ll be able to touch and feel an extensive suite of materials, check out decades of Clarks’ shoes in our archives, work closely with expert last specialists and take advantage of our state-of-the-art CAD technology and rapid prototyping. You’ll collaborate with other teams right from the start: sharing ideas for briefs with range managers, considering styles with our trends teams and bringing your concepts to life through product development. We also have an innovative design studio in Boston where you’ll be encouraged to visit.
Depending on your experience, you’ll also help lead the shape of the Mens’ ranges internationally, and offer expert guidance to junior designers.
You’re a brilliantly creative footwear designer with an impressive portfolio of successful Mens’ designs. You see inspiration everywhere which helps you to keep your ideas fresh and modern. Ideas-a-plenty and up to date with the latest fashion trends, you’ll have a great conceptual mind backed up with strong market knowledge and a good understanding of product development processes. And the thought of working closely with expert last and CAD specialists, range managers, product development teams and having 3D technology and an incredible bank of leathers and materials here should really excite you.
When it comes to quality, we’ve got the highest standards and we’d like you to share them and come ready to tailor your handwriting to the finest details of shoes that’ll sell worldwide. While we’re on the subject, it’d be great if you’ve a global awareness of how markets differ and how this affects design. You’re a real team player (that’s really important), happy to take on feedback and hear others’ opinions. Proactive with confidence in your creations, you’ll bring ideas to briefs and when you pitch your designs, you’ll show you’ve thought of every last detail and explain why your creation will sell out all over the world.
You’ll have a good understanding of Clarks: our consumers, markets and where we’re going and you’ll use your expertise to help drive us forward through excellent design. It would be great if you’ve an experienced handwriting in both Mens’ dress and casual footwear too.
You’ll be also excited about the prospect of joining a global organisation and the opportunities this brings. We’ll encourage you to travel around the world to see other markets and visit our factories.
Do great work, design great shoes and you’ll have amazing, achievable career development here, with all the support you need. You’ll also enjoy 25 days’ holiday (plus Bank Holidays), and after a qualifying period, a generous company pension scheme and the chance to join our share save scheme. And of course, a very healthy discount on Clarks products!
