After France, the LVMH Métiers d’Excellence “You and ME” tour continues in Italy, presenting the unique skills practiced in the Group’s many craft, creative and customer experience métiers, along with over 1,000 job and training opportunities. The traveling jobs and vocational training fair will reach out to future talents from April to September, visiting Florence, Novare and Padua.
First stop: Florence, Palazzo Pucci – April 14-15, 2023
The Italian leg of the tour was opened by Toni Belloni, LVMH Group Managing Director, Chantal Gaemperle, LVMH Executive Vice President, Human Resources & Synergies, Serge Brunschwig, Chairman and CEO of Fendi, and Alexandre Boquel, Director of LVMH Métiers d’Excellence. Joined by Florence mayor Dario Nardella, they presented the LVMH Group’s commitment to employment for young generations and people seeking retraining opportunities in creative, craft and customer experience professions.
“In Italy, our métiers centered on unique savoir-faire are also seeking fresh talents! From leather goods, jewelry, or the shoe industry to retail, hospitality and restaurants… It is essential to ensure the transmission of these métiers that make the “Made in Italy” shine throughout the world. It is precisely for these reasons that we wanted to promote the You and ME tour beyond the French borders and begin an extension of it in neighboring Italy, starting on April 14 in Florence”said Chantal Gaemperle, LVMH Executive Vice President, Human Resources & Synergies.
Palazzo Pucci welcomed some visitors, who had a chance to discover many of the 280 exceptional métiers practiced across the LVMH Group, and apply for more than 1,000 openings – internships, work/study programs, fixed-term and permanent jobs – available at LVMH Maisons in Italy. Their face-to-face meetings with artisans and representatives of the Maisons – including many members of human resources teams – gave them a better understanding of these métiers and a chance to benefit from personalized career guidance.
