At MATCHESFASHION we are on a mission to offer the most personal luxury shopping experience in the world. We are renowned and respected for the relationships we build with clients and our brand partnerships. To achieve our ambition, we capitalise on our unique combination of technical savviness and global innovation mixed with curated content.

MORE ABOUT US

We bring together a modern edit of over 700 established and new generation designers. Founded over 30 years ago as a brick and mortar store, we transitioned online in 2012. In 2017, APAX Partners acquired a majority stake in MATCHESFASHION, fuelling our expansion. We now ship to 176 countries, have over 70 million site visits and 95% of our sales are online with the majority of sales made internationally.

We have a global website, mobile apps, retail stores, private shopping, VIP events and 24/7 customer care and MyStylist teams. We have offices in the UK and Hong Kong. In London, our head office is based in The Shard, our brand-new creative hub is in Here East and last year we launched No.5 Carlos Place, a completely new retail concept combining digital and physical interaction.

We lead the way, moving our industry forward, and we are always looking for talented individuals to come in and inspire the world with us.


THE ROLE

Do you enjoy solving problems and have experience thinking and acting at a speed? Are you driven by the idea of providing a smooth and memorable customer experience?

You probably know how this story goes…

A customer calls. Her name is Alison, she is calling from New York about an issue with her MATCHESFASHION order. In her previous experience with other brands these phone calls are time-consuming and unhelpful so she is already preparing herself for an irritating conversation. Except that Customer Care means something different at MATCHESFASHION and it’s YOU that picked up her call. You are curious and keen to find out how you can help her, and you have the expertise to solve her problem (expertise which we help you refine with our comprehensive training as well as learning & development opportunities). You are polite and proactive; in the end she lowers her guard and opens up. Her order is something she needs for an event that may change her career. Whilst you find out what has happened with her order you realise you share a common interest in art galleries and travel, she suggests her favourite rooftop bar for you to visit if you are ever in New York. In the meantime, you have solved the problem. She is so grateful; you made her day! You wish her luck and close the call.

And just like that you have shown her that luxury at MATCHESFASHION is more than the content of the parcel she will receive soon (thanks to you!). It is in the expertise, generosity of spirit and in the connection created by its people.
