Job description

It's an exciting year as the client continues to build their brand, reach new customers and open new stores in Germany. As such, we're looking for a retail rising star to be Store Manager in their Munich store when it opens around September this year.

As leader of a new flagship store in Germany, this is a great opportunity to carve your niche in the company and help the brand make its mark in Munich. Their Store Managers are our men and women on the ground, building a best-in-class store experience and reporting the results back to the HQ in Amsterdam. Strong leadership skills, solid management experience, and an intuitive understanding of the brand are all key to delivering excellent customer service and achieving the set targets for your store.

About you...
*You must have at least three years' experience in retail management, ideally for a fashion brand.
*You think strategically, with an eye on top line sales and mindful of the bigger picture for our brand and business.
*You welcome responsibility and don't shy away from accountability; indeed, it is what drives you to take the initiative and proactively generate new ideas to improve the store experience, motivate your team and boost sales.
*You have impeccable attention to detail; the presentation of your shop is immaculate and always on-brand.
*You have an entrepreneurial spirit and understand that this is not a 9 to 5 job - it requires genuine commitment, enthusiasm, and a can-do attitude.
*You're fluent in German and English with excellent communication skills.
*Whilst it's not compulsory that you wear glasses yourself, an interest in eye-wear, and a passion for fashion and accessories is highly valued.

About the role...
*Responsible for the day-to-day management of the store, supported by a Floor Manager, Optician(s) and team of Retail Assistants.
*Build and lead a team, supporting Head Office in finding and training expert store staff with the brand DNA
*Through regular contact with the brand's teams in Amsterdam, you'll ensure seamless integration between our online and offline activities, keeping everyone up to date with what's going on at store level
*Oversee in-store events, acting as the face of the brand and ensuring that even social occasions for our customers are executed professionally
*Oversee product selection in store and keep track of inventory.

We offer...
*The chance to be part of a young and ambitious team
*Personal development
*A broad scope of responsibilities
*Continuously update your eyewear collection!
