Junior Designer - Menswear Jersey


With more than 60 years of history in the bag, ours is a brand with an impressive heritage. Style is well and truly in our blood. As well as UK and Ireland, we are represented globally through our stores in Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Middle East and Asia. Our e-commerce business is helping to set the trend globally, shipping to 125 countries whilst also growing our presence on the world’s leading digital fashion marketplaces.

Our people make all the difference. Just as the River Island name pulls customers in off the high street and inspires them to buy online, our employer brand turns the heads of talented people, inspiring them to join, stay and grow with us. 



From Moroccan souks to Miami beach, pop up galleries to hidden flea markets, our Design team are constantly looking for inspiration for our next must-have range, and regularly travel the world to discover them. When it comes to new trends, we’re here to lead, not follow –creating fresh and exciting items that excite our customers and developing our own original take on the season’s key pieces.

With a mind-set that’s both creative and commercial, our Design team work closely with Buying and Merchandising to realise a range that’s as stylish and fashion-forward as it is affordable and fast-selling – all in a world where each day is different and as exciting as the next.

We are currently looking for a creative Junior Designer to support our Jersey team.

Suitable candidate should have:-

  • Relevant experience, preferably from a High Street fashion/Supplier background
  • Experience of MW in particular with a design bias in Jersey
  • Be passionate about Fashion and demonstrate an infinity with RI Brand and high street fashion
  • Demonstrate a creative eye for product, with ability to drive the business forward
  • Strong Communication/internal liaison skills at all levels
  • Fashion related qualifications

Working alongside the relevant Buying and Merchandising function this person will be responsible for developing commercial, distinctive and stylish fashion ranges each season and identifying new and exciting trends for the customer. 


If you are ambitious and love working in a busy environment where every day is new, then River Island is the place to be! As a business, we are committed to developing our talent and offer a fantastic training program to help you optimise your performance and support your career progression with the company.

You will be working with industry experts who are passionate about our brand and really know their stuff. They are focused on ensuring they deliver this knowledge to their team to support with their development with the business. What better way to learn and develop your career than alongside someone who has been there and done it themselves!

Our working environment is busy, fast moving and responsive to our customers’ needs, much like our training which is unique to our business and reflective of our fun and refreshing brand and our people within it! Our River Academy offers ongoing training and development by running workshops throughout the year varying from courses focusing on softer skills to the more technical courses you may require to perform your duties.

It’s not all work and no play here either…we all work hard but we also like to have fun too! We are a social bunch and regularly host events ranging from Summer and Christmas parties, bake offs, and lots of charity events!
