Being self-employed without investing yourself
Would you like to open your own shop but feel put off by the major investment required? Then you have come to the right place because we partially take on the financial risks. Thus we take care of initial costs (rental of premises, repairs, fitting out the shop and warehouse, utility bills and so forth) and we also take out the necessary insurance policies (fire, public liability etc.).
You will receive a trendy collection on sale or return. That is to say you do not have to buy these items. The collection remains our property and you receive commission on the sales. Of course you are responsible for their safe keeping and presentation of the merchandise.
Training and guidance
Right from the start you well receive full support and training. During the first few weeks of being a self-employed shop manager you will be assisted by one of our trainers who will provide practical and administrative guidance in the shop. In addition we will offer a continuous course of sales training and product knowledge. Twice a year you will be invited to our collection presentation where you can catch a glimpse of the forthcoming collections and be brought up to date about the latest trends by our buyers.
In addition to our in depth training we also offer excellent advice and guidance. The Visual Merchandising team makes sure there is a uniform layout in the shop and provides tips for a trendy presentation of the collection. Your District Manager is your direct contact and link with head office. He/she will discuss commercial objectives and will guide you in the management of your own branch.
You will be supported by a financially robust group. We take care of national marketing campaigns (publicity in media, brochures, displays etc.). We will advise you with regard to the laws on self-employment and support you in your search for motivated staff to get the shop up and running.
