Juliette – Category Manager

I started at Pimkie in 2008 and I’m now a Category Manager. I’m responsible for the turnover and profitability of 4 product families: shirts, dresses, jackets and coats.

I work with the product managers and style/trend teams to determine which qualitative and quantitative strategy we should adopt to satisfy our customers, and which also fits our style platform.

Once we’ve established a framework, I guide and support the product managers using close-contact management techniques to help them meet the targets set.

At group level, I also work on side projects to ensure the continuous improvement of Pimkie’s processes.

What I like about my job is the relationships I have with the staff I manage, and the fact that I get a broader view of in-house projects which means I’m able to contribute to Pimkie’s plans for the future.

Charlotte – Product Manager / Buyer

I’ve been a product manager at Pimkie since July 2015. I wear two hats - one is to ensure profitability, the other is to provide products that keep up with the latest fashions. A Pimkie product manager is like conducting an orchestra, working with all the different departments: marketing, management control, trends, pattern makers and advertising. You have to be close to your customers and make fashion accessible for them.

What I like most about my job is the variety of the things I do. Sometimes it’s very much product-focused and I spend my time in fashion circles (travelling, fashion shows, shopping, product development) and at other times it’s more about working on strategy and putting collections together.

Margaux - Stylist

I’m an accessories Stylist and I’ve been at Pimkie for three and a half years. I work with lots of different products, like socks, shoes, winter accessories (hats, gloves, scarves), bags and purses, other accessories and even decorations. My main role is to hunt down new trends, find the next big “it” items, and provide customers with things they will be wanting in a few months’ time. So before I actually put the collection together, I do a lot of work observing trends to find new ideas, based on catwalks, shopping sessions, Instagram and the influencers on there.

Together, the product manager and I work directly with suppliers to design, create and think up products for future collections.

What I like about my job is all the research and inspiration that goes into creating an item that our customers really love.

One word that sums up your job at Pimkie? Agility, because we have to work on a range of product families and they all have different criteria.

Your advice for anyone wanting to work at Pimkie?I would say you need to have a feel for the job and be passionate about it.


Bianca_ballenghien_m

Bianca - Collection Manager

I joined Pimkie in July 2016 when I graduated, as Collection Manager for T-shirts. My main role is to make sure products are delivered to the stores on time. What I like most about my job is the variety of different things my job covers, and the dual role of product manager/buyer: I’m closely involved in product development and I’m also in permanent contact with suppliers.

One word that sums up your job at Pimkie? Collaboration. It’s crucial - in this job, I can’t achieve anything on my own.

Your advice for anyone wanting to work at Pimkie? Be yourself and believe in your potential.
