Fanny - PR manager – France
I started work at Pimkie on a work placement at the end of my studies as part of my marketing and communication course. As my work placement went well, they offered me a permanent position as communication assistant. I helped to create all the promotional display items in our shops (point-of-purchase advertising, posters etc.) After two years, I became PR manager. I work closely with various advertising agencies and I make sure that the identity and image of Pimkie is constantly seen in the best possible light. I am passionate about my work, because I always have to work in a team! I work with marketing, design and also with the web department.
Hugo - Head management auditor – Spain
I was taken on by Pimkie as a managing controller nine years ago. From the very start, I was told about the opportunities for promotion within the company, and after two years, I was offered the position of head of department. I now manage a team of 5 people. My job entails drawing up a monthly company report and supervising and coordinating all budget processes. It is a very rewarding job that enables me to make the most of my love of figures and analysis, as well as my interpersonal skills.
Charlotte - Recruitment manager - France
I have been head of recruitment at Pimkie since 2009. It is a very rewarding job because I never come across the same type of candidate twice! As well as dealing with recruitment, I work on developing the career management policy. My aim is to provide assistance for Pimkie employees and help them to move forward within the company.
The ability to listen, analytical skills, the wherewithal to adapt, and good interpersonal skills, are, in my view, the essential skills to succeed in this job.
Stefan - Accountant – Germany
After business school, I found a position at Pimkie as an accountant. I love this job because there is a broad scope to take initiative. I look after both management employees' travel expenses, and rent payments for all the shops in Germany, as well as invoices for work and maintenance work. My love of figures and my analytical skills are important qualities for this job.
