What is Lara Intimates?

Lara Intimates is a women’s underwear brand manufacturing in-house in London and selling direct to customers online. The business launched in September 2017 with a mission to celebrate the women who make Lara Intimates products. Lara currently uses offcut fabrics as well as locally sourced elastics and components. Manufacturing is done entirely in-house by Lara’s factory team. The Lara Factory also recycles all textile waste, and the company offers one of the widest bra size ranges in the world: 26A-36GG.

About the Job Role

Lara Intimates is looking to hire a fabric cutter to work in the Lara Factory. A cutter will be responsible to prepare cut work, straps and components for the sewing team to a high standard. The role will require using industrial cutting tools and sample cutting by hand. As we are a small factory, cutting will not take all of your time. In your free time, you will help with packing orders, printing markers and keeping the production room organised.

Responsibilities

  • Cut Lara Intimates products at speed and to a high standard
  • Use industrial cutting knives
  • Cut samples by hand
  • Notice mistakes. I.e. a grainline is off or a marker didn’t print correctly
  • Organise cut work and components for the sewing team
  • Prepare bra straps, threads, elastics for the sewing team
  • Keep your work area organised
  • Support the business with packing, organising and other jobs in your free time
  • Have good teamwork with your cutting partner
  • Contribute to the overall running of the production line to ensure deadlines are met

Why work for Lara Intimates?

  • Be part of a fast growing team
  • Improve your skills and learn from our experienced production supervisor and product developer
  • Join a company dedicated to creating high quality jobs in the UK
  • Use your skills to help make premium, high quality and beautiful lingerie products
  • Support a brand with environmentally sustainable practices and a local supply chain
  • Lara’s team is just 10 people, and there is potential to grow with the company

The Ideal Candidate

  • Has apprenticeship or professional training in a factory setting. Lingerie-specific a plus but not necessary.
  • A hard worker and has a great attitude
  • Wants to learn and improve their cutting and production skills
