Role Overview

UMENCO is recruiting a fastidious Garment Technician to work alongside the production and design teams at a coveted Australian fashion brand.

The Garment Technician will be accountable for establishing and maintaining quality and fit standards across all product and textile categories, at every touchpoint of the product lifecycle, to ensure garments are manufactured with accuracy.

The successful talent will possess advanced technical knowledge with the ability to interpret design briefings and translate these to specs and tech packs.

They will have a minimum of five years of experience in an aligned role, preferably within the fashion and apparel industry, and will hold a tertiary qualification in technical fashion with proficiency across tools including the Microsoft Office suite and QA and pattern-making related software.

Organisational adeptness, cogent communication, and confidence in navigating deadlines are essential to the execution of this role.
