Louise - Shop manager - France
After several years in a textile business of a competitor, I started working for Pimkie in 2009 as a shop manager in La Rochelle. I found a dynamic, youthful company that offers fashion that is constantly being renewed!I manage and lead a team of 5 people.
I try every day to serve as an example and to help the team to achieve this one objective: to boost the turnover of my shop and always provide satisfaction for our customers.
Anna - Regional sales manager – Czech Republic and Slovakia
I studied business science and foreign languages, and subsequently found the position of Regional sales manager after several years as a shop manager in the Czech Republic. My mission entails assisting the shop managers in my region with their everyday work. I advise them on management issues and sales promotions in their outlet, and attempt to guide them in managing and leading their team.
Having been a shop manager myself, I feel that I understand their difficulties, and I try to advise them on what to do to move forward.
Sofia - Deputy manager – Portugal
I started my career at Pimkie as a part-time sales assistant in the Porto shop. Very quickly, I got a taste for the job, and I moved up to a 30 hour a week contract. After three years, I got the opportunity to replace my deputy manager while she was on maternity leave. I learned a lot from this experience. I have acquired more in depth knowledge about merchandising techniques, and effective product display has become one of my favourite activities.
Then, a position as deputy manager came up in Lisbon and I seized the opportunity! I am now the right-hand woman of my manager, and I help her to manage and lead the team.
