British talent is some of the best, and it’s in demand

Since joining Drapers almost three years ago, I’ve witnessed a rapid increase in the number of roles outside the UK looking to attract British talent.

International expansion is at the top of most comp-any’s growth strategy nowadays, with many UK employers looking for staff with global experience to help drive sales further afield. Conversely, talent here in the UK is considered to be some of the very the best, so it’s not surprising companies beyond our shores want to get hold of these individuals.

At a recent roundtable hosted by Drapers, HR representatives from Superdry, River Island and Monsoon Accessorize discussed the challenges they face recruiting internationally. What was clear is that these companies are in a period of transition and at varying stages of international growth. Each is navig-ating difficult issues and they are all keen to find out how others have coped.

These discussions helped shape the content in this report.

In a recent presentation at Graduate Fashion Week, recruiters from PVH, which owns the Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein brands, showed how its entire global product range is designed out of Amsterdam. This highlights how in some companies, you can truly make a difference on a global scale regardless of where in the world you are located.

Drapers and Drapers Jobs will continue to help promote opportunities abroad, so we hope you find the next few pages helpful, whether you are recruiting or looking for work.
