We are looking for an energetic and keen Retail Buying Assistant for our Retail Buying and Merchandising team. Does it sound like something for you? Then read on.
As our new Retail Buying Assistant, you will be a part of our Own Stores Retail Buying and Merchandising team, which consists of 10 colleagues who are all dedicated to the success of our new team. We come with different cultural backgrounds and different experiences from the world of fashion, and we are all focused on securing the best products delivered at the right time to our VERO MODA Own stores. We are a key department within VERO MODA where we take part in setting the direction for the whole brand, securing alignment across departments and markets.

- In-depth knowledge about womenswear
- Solid understanding of numbers
- Great business acumen
- Knowledgeable about Excel

You are characterised by having a great drive, and you thrive in a dynamic environment where results and growth are focal areas. At the same time, you are independent, take initiative and able to motivate and inspire those around you. You are determined and take pride in delivering the best possible results in collaboration with your colleagues in the Retail Buying and Merchandising team. Your winning mentality is evident in your daily behaviour and, finally, you are passionate about fashion and trends.
We look forward to hearing from you!
