Frequently asked questions

What qualifications/interests should I have?

You have a university degree (preferably in Economics) combined with several years of experience in a management position in a service-oriented segment or retail, ideally in the field of fashion. Experience in leading and managing people and a solid overview of the local fashion retail market, competitors and the general lifestyle environment are qualities that you bring to the table. You combine a highly professional appearance with in-depth social and communication skills, team orientation, organisational and analytical abilities. Furthermore, you have a good understanding of visual merchandising concepts and a high level of proficiency in German and/or English.

How will I be trained?

Throughout the course of approximately six months of on-the-job training, you will be individually prepared in stores in your local market as well as in our international stores abroad. You will grow with your tasks and will receive more and more responsibility over time. At the same time, you will also be trained via our modular courses held in German at the head office in Vienna or Düsseldorf. After completing your training phase, you will be responsible for a store.

What opportunities for development will I have?

You will begin as a general sales manager, and will have first-class career prospects – even more so if you are flexible regarding location, as there are many career options awaiting you abroad in the other P&C markets. You could, for example, become a Store Director in the medium term or a Country Manager in the long term.

Is placement abroad possible?

Yes. If you are interested in other cultures and countries or have special language qualifications, we take these factors into account when creating your development plan. Of course we will also support you with language lessons and intercultural training.

What does the application process look like?

Peek & Cloppenburg wants to take the time to get to know you – and to give you time to get to know the company. Consequently, there is a multi-stage process consisting of 4-5 steps, which means it is best to apply at least 3 months before your desired starting date.

The selection process consists of the following steps:

  • Interview with Mrs. Paulina Wiedl, Recruiting and Development of Buyer, Sales Manager and General Sales Manager
  • Sneak peek into the business, including a meeting with your potential colleagues
  • Interview with your direct superior
  • Meeting with the Managing Board
  • Several tests
