This is a once in a lifetime opportunity! Kmart is Australia’s most profitable and successful big box retailer and for the first time we are extending an invitation to experienced and talented FOOTWEAR DESIGNERS from outside of Australia to apply to join our business and relocate to Melbourne, the world’s most liveable city!

Kmart forms part of Wesfarmers, Australia’s largest employer and we are renowned for our amazing products and incredible prices. We have big plans in place that include expansion into new markets, the opening of another 50 stores and the transformation of our online business. There are very few retailers in world today who are experiencing the kind of growth and sell the volume of Kmart Australia.

And we are a great place to work! At Kmart we pride ourselves on being a value led organisation and believe that integrity, boldness, team work & customer service drives our success.
Our culture is fun, positive, honest and professional. We treat each other equally, with respect and we like to keep things simple.

We operate at a fast pace, are highly results focussed and we all work collaboratively to ensure the continued success of our business. Our structure is non-hierarchical; our leaders are approachable and foster a culture that encourages innovation, creativity and autonomy.

We are inviting applications from highly experienced Footwear Designers to take on a role focusing on Men’s footwear and Active footwear / sports shoes.

This opportunity will see you work collaboratively with the merchandise teams whilst at the same time undertaking significant trend forecasting, researching and developing footwear product from concept to final sign off, managing the production of artwork and graphics for overseas manufacturers, interpreting briefs given on product requirements, and working closely with a buying team throughout the seasonal cycle. You will be required to complete technical sketches which are detail and fabric specific, quality focussed and design to a competitive price point.

Your success in this role will be measured by your ability to ensure speed to market, understanding of market trends and product differentiation from competitors. You will have already made a strong impact in previous roles and your sound background in footwear construction, graphic design, technical drawings, fabric knowledge will be integral to your success. In addition a strong working knowledge of Adobe Illustrator CS and Adobe Photoshop CS will give you the ideal background to excel in this position.

We have a lot to offer our team members including generous remuneration, an uncapped bonus scheme and benefits program, great development opportunities across both Kmart and the Wesfarmer’s Group plus lots more!
