Official press release - Fashion Appointments celebrate their 6th successful year with a new website for the social media age

20th August 2012



Fashion Appointments celebrates its 6th successful year in fashion recruitment with the launch of a new website.

Originally founded in 2006, Fashion Appointments - which provides bespoke regional and national outsourced recruitment consultancy services - has remained true to its original goal by helping hundreds of high calibre candidates find and succeed in opportunity rich positions in leading fashion companies.

This week, six years after its initial launch, Fashion Appointments is launching its brand new, social media rich website to make it even easier for more candidates and clients to find their matches. The new website includes up to the minute job listings, the latest news from the world of fashion and essential hints and tools on how to secure a job in fashion.

"Our new website has been developed with increased functionality and crucially, with a focus on social media integration to allow us to increase awareness of the company and provide an excellent shop window for those considering our services", says Suzi Jacobs, the founder and owner. "Social media is fast, effective and viral", adds Suzi, "and we aim to reach as wide an audience as possible using a combination of social media platforms, and positive word of mouth."

With a fashion career spanning 30 years, Suzi has first rate experience in buying and merchandising for leading retailers such as John Lewis, Top Shop and House of Fraser, has in-depth knowledge of the textile, manufacturing, product development and account management areas and has first hand experience in the logistics sector. A rare, and powerful combination for any recruiter.

"We don't think of ourselves as 'recruiters' in some ways", says Suzi, "we tend to think of ourselves as consultants because we do a great deal more than simply 'place people in jobs, and this is what our new site will demonstrate. One thing I pride myself on is that our team knows the fashion industry inside out. We are not driven by 'quick placements' and 'easy fees' - we focus on long term, meaningful relationships with our clients and our candidates and we get a real buzz from adding true value to both parties." To this end, Suzi is often called upon as a high end fashion consultant, advising leading teams on their strengths and weaknesses, before going out the market to find that missing ingredient.

Fashion Appointments is head quartered in London, England but has a national reach. To find out more about the company, please visit www.fashionappointments.com.
