Daniela - Product manager/buyer - France
I began my career three years ago as a collection manager for the dress department. This position gave me the opportunity to work alongside a Product Manager/Buyer and understand the key elements of the product life cycle (sourcing, negotiation, monitoring product development, and delivery).
Thanks to my knowledge of supplier relations and my talent for products, Pimkie offered me the chance to expand my role, as product manager/buyer for T-shirts. I am now running my own department and building my collection plan in collaboration with a stylist, as well as elaborating a supplier strategy.
Emilie - Collection manager – France
I joined the purchasing division in the sweater section a year ago. As a collection manager, I am responsible for making sure that products arrive at our logistics centre on time. Every day, I am in contact with our suppliers. I deal with short and long-distance imports, so I have to speak English very well.
What I like about this job is working as a team all the time. I talk to the designer and buyer in my section every day about the progress being made with the products in the collection. It's out of the question to go it alone; we are all working towards a common aim: to create a modern, fresh collection for our customers.
Charlotte - Product designer – France
I have been working at Pimkie for 6 years. After training in design and textile creation, I started as an assistant designer in the accessories section. I quickly progressed to become a designer. I now spot and analyse the latest trends, and then make fashionable, trendy bags, scarves and shoes. I am really passionate about fashion! What I like about working as a designer is that we never design or create the same thing twice!
