Upon successful completion of your studies, you will have the opportunity to advance your career and become a department manager and take on responsibility for staff and sales. Afterwards, you can work your way up to General Sales Manager (m/f/x).
If you show outstanding performance and meet certain criteria, such as a willingness to learn German and the flexibility to relocate, you could also be promoted to Merchandise Controller (m/f/x).
What does a Department Manager in Sales do?
As a department manager, you are responsible for the turnover of the sales area entrusted to you, and thus also for analysing the sales figures in order to determine how to improve your turnover. You will also take on personnel responsibility and lead, but above all motivate your sales team. In addition, you will also help to train P&C's own junior staff. Other duties include ensuring that our customers receive service-oriented advice, maintaining close contact with our purchasing department to coordinate the product range, as well as strategy and system-based control/analysis of the product range, and the management of your sales floor.
What does a Merchandise Controller do?
As a Merchandise Controller, you are a vital point of contact for your buyer (m/f/x). You will analyse the sales figures and, based on this, derive budgets for the brands and products that lie within your area of responsibility. In other words, you act as a banker for our buyer and give them the money they need to allocate the collections for our sales floors. Other duties include preparing reports, restocking our sales areas, preparing figures for collection meetings, order appointments and budget planning appointments, as well as having a good rapport with our colleagues in sales.
