Why Matalan?

Matalan are a £1bn multi-channel retail business with huge ambitions, and it’s these ambitions and the people behind us that make us who we are.

We’re committed to supporting those at the start of their career in Fashion and with our 12 month Technical Services placement, you’ll be working closely with our Garment Technologists and Buying teams to develop and update product ranges whilst maintaining Matalan's high-quality standards.

With the benefits of a dedicated on-boarding & training programme, it won’t be long before you’re involved in every step of the process and your opinion will really count something that sets us apart from other placement opportunities.

The Role

Each day is different, you’re continuously faced with new and exciting challenges, giving you the opportunity to develop and progress on your placement, and gaining knowledge to help in your future Technical Services career.

As the Technical Services Placement student, you’ll attend fit sessions with the Buying teams, taking notes and offering solutions to issues, contributing more to the meetings as your knowledge increases.

You’ll book all samples into the Technical Services team, taking measurements and organising before and during fit sessions to ensure an efficient flow of garments through the department.

You’ll contact suppliers with clear and concise comments regarding each sample, liaising with the Garment Technologists for advice and guidance.
