Jackie’s career span’s over 20-years having worked for the some of the biggest retailers in the UK; with past companies being George@ASDA, Blacks Outdoors and ASOS.com
Jackie started out as a trainee Merchandiser and achieved success leading merchandising teams at a senior level. As her career progressed she worked as a lead in transformational strategy and change projects; managed teams as a Senior Sourcing Manager and most recently had the opportunity to work with UK on-demand factories as a Production Planning Manager. All this experience has given her a great insight into the end-to-end life of a garment.
Jackie joined Fashion-Enter Ltd (FEL) in February 2022 as Manager of the FC FTA Leicester, having previously met Jenny and the team at FEL during her time at ASOS.com. The last 6-months, Jackie says, have been some of the most rewarding in her career to date, with 175 qualifications achieved, business support for 44 factories; the creation of ‘Leicester Made’ online Directory and the first Leicester Meet and Greet event.
In August 2022 Jackie accepted the new role of Deputy CEO and she is dedicated to develop the FEL academies, as well as work with The Factory, Fashion Studio and Designer Workspace, plus provide support with the many new projects that emerge.
Jackie is thrilled to be a part of FEL, a Not-for-Profit, social enterprise pushing for positive social and environmental change – which is the only way forward for the fashion industry. Exciting times ahead.
