Careers Overview


Taking Shape burst onto the plus size women’s fashion scene in 1983.

Since then we’ve grown to be the leaders in plus size fashion in Australia and New Zealand, celebrating curves from the tropics of far north Queensland to the icy south of New Zealand. Wherever you find strong, independent curvy women who aren’t afraid to stand out in a crowd, you’ll find Taking Shape.

We have 3 different facets to our business. Taking Shape boutiques, Myer Concept stores (a store within a store) and our Online store. Each business model equally reflects the Taking Shape culture and values.

The foundation of our brand is our strong people focus. Not only are we committed to providing our customers an innovative and memorable shopping experience; we recognise our people as our biggest asset and are prepared to invest accordingly!

As part of the Taking Shape team, you’ll relish working alongside vibrant, motivated and inspiring people who make work fun. 

Your contribution will be valued through rewards and incentives, regular feedback and first class employment conditions. And we don’t just value who you are, we recognise who you want to become by offering ongoing training and development.

At Taking Shape, you’ll never be just another face in the crowd, you’ll feel and be treated like the individual and important part of the team that you are!


At Taking Shape, we're in the "people" game.

That's why our reputation as a great place to work is so important to us. Take the plunge and see why our rewards and recognition culture sets us apart from our contemporaries.
