Step ONE

Before applying, its important to get an understanding of us as a business. Take a look round this site, our website, visit your local store, and check out our social networking sites, @FatFace on twitter and Fat Face on Facebook.

Step TWO

If Fat Face is the right place for you, check out our current opportunities. Click on Search for Jobs where you will be able to select jobs in your local area, or at our head office, here you will also be able to create an account. If the department or store you are interested in isn't currently recruiting, you can send your details through to us speculatively, as well as set job alerts so we can email you to let you know when a suitable position becomes available.


If you have found an opportunity that seems right for you, you can start the application process. Your application will take about 35 minutes, and will involve you telling us your details, experience, and a bit about what you like to do outside the 9-5. All the information you provide will be confidential.


Once you have completed and submitted your application, you will receive an email to the address you have provided, make sure you check your junk folder and mark us as a safe sender (we will communicate with you via email throughout your application process, so be sure you check emails regularly.) We will take it from here, and pass on your details to the relevant store or department; they will then review your details against our selection criteria. If you have been successful, we will invite you to the next stage of the process. Due to the volume of applications we receive, if you have not heard from us within 10 days, this means that unfortunately your application has not been successful.


Depending on the position applied for, you will be invited to either an interview or one of our selection events, don't worry we will let you know in plenty of time which one.

Interviews tend to last an hour, but to be safe allow yourself an hour and a half.

Selection events will be either a half or full day, during which you will take part in a series of activities, in pairs, groups and on your own as well as having an interview. These are based upon our visions and values and are designed to help us understand if you will be successful in Fat Face and to help you understand what working at Fat Face is really like.

Step SIX

Finally, if we do choose you and more importantly if you choose us, the final stage will be an interview with the department you have applied for.
