Clothing company recruits 20 staff as business begins to return

Manchester-based custom branded clothing company Clothes2order is increasing the size of its team by 15%, with the recruitment 20 staff to work at the Trafford headquarters.

The 20 roles are predominantly in operations where the company print and embroider clothing for businesses, teams and communities.

Since navigating a tricky period in the pandemic, the business has come out strongly as demand for uniforms, workwear and promotional clothing rapidly picks up following the end of lockdown restrictions.

In addition, the business is looking to drive its next phase of growth with the recruitment of a new senior position, chief technology officer.

The CTO will oversee the development of the company’s systems and website and will be working alongside the rest of the leadership team, including Sam Jones, managing director and Simon Turner, marketing director.

Sam Jones said: “Despite significant challenges over the last 18 months, our award winning business transformation has put us in a strong position as we come out of the other side.

“It is extremely exciting to be growing the team with 20 brand new staff to meet record breaking demand.

“Initially, the pandemic had a huge impact on us, as many of the industries we supply workwear and uniforms to had to shut down completely. We had to adapt quickly, and the team did a fantastic job of identifying opportunities and preparing the business for the country re-opening.

“Being able to give 20 people new jobs is truly a landmark achievement and one we are extremely proud of as we take the business into our next stage of growth.”

Simon Turner said: “Our company values are all about customer experience ahead of short term profit. We work together as one team to give our customers exceptional service, setting and achieving industry standards for speed and quality. We believe in consistently developing our people, production and products.”
