Getting a feel for the fashion business

In the fashion business, today's current season is yesterday's challenge. Things move on at breakneck speed. Nothing and no-one ever stands still. It's like Marmite. You either love it, or...

One or two weeks of Work Experience at George is a great way to find out whether it's right for you. In a short time you'll discover there's a lot more to fashion than the glitz and glamour of the catwalk.

Throughout the year there are many opportunities to get some valuable insights and experience, either in one of our stores or at our Head Office (George House) in Lutterworth. There you could join one of several teams, including

  • Design
  • Buying
  • Merchandising
  • Garment Technology
  • Supply

Is it up your street?

We also offer a limited number of Work Experience placements at our London Design Studio in Carnaby Street. If you know anything about the history of fashion, you'll know Carnaby Street was the style mecca of the swinging 60s, where legendary designers opened boutiques, made their names and defined an era. It could be where you decide that fashion is right up your street.

Wherever you join us, you'll gain practical experience, a lot of good advice and a real feel for what it's like to be part of the George 'family'. The work is unpaid but the experience is priceless. If you think this is the industry for you, you'll have given yourself a head start.

Best of the Best

George has recently been recognised with a top accolade in the National Council for Work Experience Awards 2013, taking the 'Best of the Best' title in a new category to mark the NCWE Award's 10th anniversary!
