Job description

About Olivia Burton

Olivia Burton is an exciting fashion and lifestyle business which was set up six years ago. The company was founded by two entrepreneur’s Jemma and Lesa who met when studying at the London College of Fashion. After completing their degrees, they took up buying roles working for the likes of ASOS, Selfridges and Topshop. In 2012, after noticing a significant gap in the market for stylish, fashionable watches at an affordable price, the duo decided to join forces and set up their own business; Olivia Burton.

Mixing vintage styles with catwalk trends, Olivia Burton designs are strikingly original. The coveted brand launches new collections of directional styles every two months, allowing Olivia Burton to react to seasonal trends and offer the consumer constant newness. Last year the brand launched a jewellery range as a natural expansion of their product offering.

In July 2017 Olivia Burton was acquired by Movado Group, a $500m global watch group with watch licenses including Hugo Boss, Tommy Hilfiger and Lacoste. This acquisition positions Olivia Burton for accelerated global growth.
