Job Type


This legendary French luxury brand was born almost 200 years ago as a specialist in leather goods. They introduced the first ladies bag with zip closures - an instant hit! - before expanding their range to include riding gloves, belts and travel trunks. Their most famous bag to date was created in 1984 and it still continues to have the longest waiting list of any luxury accessory.

Today, their range is extremely extensive, covering ladies and mens ready-to-wear, furniture, silverware, crystal, porcelain, watches, silk goods, footwear and fragrance - all of the highest quality, and presented by staff with a very impressive knowledge of each and every item to ensure you receive the highest standard of service with every visit.

Their boutique in House of Fraser has been a great success since it opened. Now, as a vacancy has arisen, I am working closely with the Store Manager to recruit an Assistant Manager to support the success of the branch.

As Assistant Manager, you will be responsible for:

  • Sales generation; driving KPIs, motivating the team and ensuring all targets are achieved.
  • Stock control including transfer, order, stock take and display.
  • Brand promotion, events in and out of store and delivering exceptional customer service.
  • Supporting the Store Manager in all aspects of paperwork; rotas, payroll, budgeting, P&L etc.

To be considered for this position, you must have experience working with a like-for-like retailer, i.e. a luxury fashion or accessory company, at Store Manager or a senior Deputy Manager level.

You must be flexible, dedicated, well presented, articulate with a sales-focused approach teamed with extremely high customer service experience.

You must have a genuine passion for luxury goods and a good understanding of the fashion industry.
