I was thinking the same thing, these qualifications are unreal and any one who applies and says they know all this are faking some of it. If such a person exists, at the calibre they desire, is easily 100k salary. However something tells me they want all this for €25.000. Given the responsibilities they worked the last codger to death.

Rag trade or slave trade? Probably an 80 hour week or on call 24 hours.If the applicant is not a divorcee, they will be after taking this job.

100k would be too less, 200k - 250k probably would be more real.

 

 

 

They will likely to pay maybe 50k. Therefore, I say, keep dreaming!

 

 

 

RL will already completely fail on:

 

Must have extensive knowledge of men’s fine tailoring and patternmaking as well as advanced knowledge in sartorial, semi sartorial and industrial make.

 

 

 

The key responsibilities else could be trained or learned of a sound and outgoing, intelligent personality with at least a technical bachelor and account managing sales experience.

 

If they lucky, they might find an 18 year old transgender from some design academy, who owns a cutting book from 2012 and claims he knows something... LOL

I see despite the many laudable policies of your company you do not appear to have anyone that speaks tailorese or plain English.  For a modest consulting fee I can offer to rewrite your ad and liaise with you and deliver marketing strategies better 'ahem' tailored to your audience as well as offering a bottom up appraisal of the position and 'expectation management'.

Does that include cooking and cleaning  :w00t:

 

Today's expectations are completely false. The ad was obviously put together by someone who has no real life experience, and a poor reflection of the Ralph Lauren brand.

Don't you think that it is purposely worded to weed out the most unsuitable (pun intended) candidates?

Yes it sounds like a wish list but like any job, if everything that a position required, (even if some things happened only once every four years) was described in HR speak, the list would look like the one above.
I could certainly make mine sound like that! :)

It sounds much more like a management/ supervisory/ liaison position that requires the skills of a tailor but won't require very much actual hands on work.

They would have as much chance of fulfilling that job criteria, as finding the Loch ness Monster. Its basically a list, where, if they find someone they deem more suitable in the future, they have a ready made list of excuses to get rid of the person presently in that position.

Untrustworthy is a word that springs to mind when viewing that list.

This notice sounds ridiculous, but it's not OK to make fun of trans people.

I'm glad it's not just me.  It seemed like a lot was being asked.  I believe there's a forum member here who performs many of these tasks for a company in the Midwest, although I'm not sure he's ever discussed digital pattern making on his blog.

Hello All,

 

    After reading the key requirements, the company wishes to find at least seven employees in one for one man pay.   

 

The requirements listed above are beyond my capabilities.  I would not be able to physically keep up with the responsibilities involved.

 

Either the company set a very high bar for a purpose, to eliminate the unqualified or who ever had this written this did not understand the extent of the responsibilities involved.

 

 

Kind regards

 

Jeffrey 2117

I see ads like this all the time. "Applicant should have 500 years of studies and 700 years of work experience of all concievable fields in the world, will have to be able to compete in javelin and be fluent in thickening sauces". Like mentioned I think they try to scare away people who can't deliver.

 

The things that really annoys me is the VIP- and lauren family thing. And the notion of the company discount. A person fullfilling those conditions wouldn't have to buy a RL garment...

Modesty and age forbid me applying for this job! Also I would not be up for the travel as my bicycle has a puncture!

 

I cannot understand why? they did not include a broom up the backside, so one could brush the floor at the same time, while running around doing everything else.
