Savoir Pour Faire publishes a guide to hiring in fashion and luxury #641


Faced with the difficulty of recruiting technically qualified workers in the luxury and fashion sector, the Comité Stratégique de Filière Mode & Luxe (CSF) has published an interactive online guide, including videos and podcasts, on career opportunities as part of its “Savoir Pour Faire” campaign.

80 technical professions, i.e. more than 10,000 positions per year, are available in the jewellery, jewellery, watchmaking, tableware, textile, sewing, clothing, tannery, leather goods and footwear sectors. This sector is characterised by a great diversity of players: luxury groups that are struggling to find qualified personnel (Chanel, Hermès, Kering, LVMH, etc.), designer and ready-to-wear brands, workshops and manufacturing companies, mainly SMEs and VSEs.

For each sector of activity, the guide gives a numerical reminder, a map of the regions where training is available, the type of employers and professions concerned and the jobs in short supply. It also includes testimonials from qualified staff. It also points out that many training courses are accessible to all. There are many public schools and therefore free or almost free. It is also possible to obtain a grant or a financed work-study programme.
