  • Be able to support other members of the Technical team with fit and quality queries and be an advisory to other functions within the business such as Buying, Design, Merch and Sourcing.
  • Understand fabric characteristics and behaviour for product suitability.
  • Hold a comprehensive understanding of factory production line processes.
  • Be customer focused. Respond to all customer queries relating to product fit and quality as a priority to support the customer service team.
