Fred Perry has always been different.

Triple Wimbledon champion Fred Perry was born to a cotton spinner. He played and fought his way through, always with style and despite the establishment.

In 1952, he founded the Fred Perry brand, designing his first pique shirt the same year. That shirt, the shirt, would transcend sportswear to streetwear on the backs of generation after generation of British youth subcultures. The shirt is the start and end of everything we do, because it’s more than a shirt – it’s a rite of passage, it’s the uniform of the non-uniform. A true icon.

Today, Fred Perry is a global community of 370 employees, all inspired by the Laurel Wreath and what it represents.

Fred Perry has never adjusted its course for anyone. Never been a slave to fashion. Never tied itself to the latest subculture. This philosophy has led to long term collaborations with like-minded partners, from Comme des Garçons to Amy Winehouse and from Raf Simons to Charlie Casely-Hayford.

Our Team

We’re an ambitious brand, collaborating with some of the best designers and partners in the world. But we’re only as good as our employees, so we look to attract people who are passionate with diverse backgrounds and experience.

Our head office is in the heart of London. It’s where everything happens from Design, Product Development, Customer Service and Operations. We have over 200 shops around the world, from Glasgow to Brighton, Paris, New York, Shanghai and Tokyo to name a few.

We value the career and personal development of our employees. We invest in leadership and coaching programmes that are aimed at upskilling our Directors and Senior Management team. This gives them the tools and skills needed to become effective leaders.

The health and wellbeing of our staff is as important to us as the clothes we make. Looking after our community is an ongoing priority for the brand and so from 2022, we are offering all our permanent staff access to Health Assured’s Employee Assistance Programme.

EAP helps employees deal with personal problems that might impact their health, wellbeing or work performance. The programme generally includes assessment, short-term counselling and referral services for employees and their immediate family. A free 24/7 counselling and legal support line means that Fred Perry employees can access help whenever they need it most.

Diversity & Inclusivity

The Laurel Wreath is a symbol of individuality and of belonging. We pride ourselves in being an inclusive workplace, but we recognise this is a work in progress.

We set up a Diversity & Inclusivity group in order to educate ourselves and to start doing the work to make real positive differences across the business. We feel we needed to first take the time to look internally, speak to our teams and focus our energies on listening to our employees’ experiences.

Fashion Minority Report

Having recognised the barriers for diverse talent to access opportunities in the fashion and creative sector, Fashion Minority Report have developed a multi-brand programme to narrow that gap. As a brand partner, Fred Perry supports FMR by taking part in their mentoring programme, helping to inspire the next generation of diverse leaders within the industry.

Over a 16-week period, select mentors across the business are paired with an 18-27 year old for one-to-one mentoring. Once the programme is over, mentees who have successfully completed the programme will have the opportunity to apply for a paid internship with Fred Perry. These inclusive programmes have proven to be an important tool for nurturing emerging professionals and creating a more diverse and inclusive sector in the future.

Living Wage

We ensure that all our employees will always receive no less than the National Minimum Wage and for those aged 25+ we ensure that they will always receive the National Living Wage.

We recognise that some of our employees under the age of 25 are only receiving the National Minimum Wage and we are looking into the locations where this is the case, why it is and what we can do to move them beyond minimum wage levels.

Gender Pay Gap Report

At Fred Perry we employ 303 staff across the UK, 57.75% are Female and 41.91% are Male.

Our gender pay gap is currently still too wide, but we are making progress in that the gap is narrowing and it is our ambition to close Fred Perry’s gender gap – something we are working towards.

Enhanced Maternity & Paternity Packages

At Fred Perry we want to make sure that all new parents feel supported and can take the time they need during such a life changing event.

We offer enhanced maternity and paternity packages for all our UK staff, which are as follows:

- Maternity leave for UK mothers to be paid 26 weeks at full pay, 13 weeks at SMP and 13 weeks unpaid if a full year taken

- Paternity leave for UK fathers to be paid 12 weeks at full pay, to be taken flexibly within 1 year from birth

Other territories outside of the UK are currently being reviewed with an aim to bringing these in-line with our current packages for UK staff.

We are also committed to creating a safe and open environment where any team member can talk about reproductive health without judgement. This can be in areas such as fertility, adoption, surrogacy, pregnancy, miscarriage or menopause. We are in the early phases of what additional support we can offer everyone and are listening to our teams’ ideas and suggestions.

The Fred Perry Shirt is for Everyone

We are proud to have a community of customers from all over the world, adopting the Fred Perry Shirt in their own unique way. Over the past 70 years, the Laurel Wreath has become a signature of both individuality and of belonging – from elite sports players, to fringe subcultures. We continue to celebrate our diversity, with exciting collaborations with inspiring designers, musicians and artists.

Celebrating our unique relationship with music and subculture, we have 100s of playlists curated by our community over the years. Create your own and add to the legacy.

People are central to everything we do at Fred Perry and looking after our community is an ongoing priority for the brand. We are therefore excited to announce that we have received a 1 Star accreditation for 2022, from Best Companies.

Best Companies is a leading employee engagement specialist, analysing data and gaining important insights to help positive change within the workplace.

Achieving a 1 Star accreditation means that Fred Perry is recognised as having a ‘very good’ level of workplace engagement. We’re pleased about this - but confident we can do better and are committed to annual surveys with the aim to increase this level year upon year.
