Trends in Textile Recruiting and Talent Acquisition

Our Apparel and Textile recruiters partner with companies across the clothing industry value chain to provide the right talent quickly, flexibly and affordably.

Key trends in the textile industry driving key talent acquisition requirements:

U.S. Operations / Plant Manager / Supply Chain Recruiting

  • Onshoring – China is changing due to a smaller workforce, rising demands for better wages, and working conditions becoming less competitive. There is a trend of both on-shoring and moving to other countries other than China in the industry. In some cases, the lower cost of transportation for on-shore manufacturing outweighs any labor advantage and more textile plants are being located closer to the end consumer.

Strategic Marketing / Digital Marketing Recruiting

  • Direct-to-consumer selling – new websites are hiring manufacturers to have their clothing made and then sell it directly to consumers online at prices of about half of what shoppers are accustomed to seeing in retail stores. This allows companies to maintain low overhead and bypass wholesale distributors and retail stores by selling online to consumers.

Fashion Marketing Recruiting

  • Brand identity – regardless of size and segment companies in the fashion industry; they now need to be nimble, think digital-first and achieve ever-faster speed to market. They need to take an active stance on social issues, satisfy consumer demands for radical transparency and sustainability and, most important, have the courage to “self-disrupt” their own identity and the sources of their old success to realize these changes and win new generations of customers.
