I studied business administration in Berlin, initially focusing on product management. After completing my studies, a vacancy at THOMAS SABO was an opportunity to become practically familiar with this interface job within the company. What I find particularly interesting in my work is the correlation between the rational and creative tasks.
I am a Junior Product Manager at the THOMAS SABO headquarters in Lauf an der Pegnitz, working in the Jewellery division. My team is – in collaboration with the Management – responsible for planning and developing the new collections. Once our design department has finalised the designs, we steer the manufacturing process for each individual design – all the way through to market roll-out. For me, this means that I work very closely with my superiors and all departments involved on a daily basis.
THOMAS SABO is a medium-sized, owner-run company with flat decision-making hierarchies. Many processes and procedures here are flexible and creative in structure, so that we always collaborate closely with the Management and launch products swiftly. The decision-making processes at THOMAS SABO are short and characterised by a personal and humorous approach. I find it fascinating how we are again and again able to successfully launch our collections together with our colleagues, partners and vendors and wow our customers each season – despite extremely tight scheduling.
I love team spirit! Whether this is in my leisure time on the tennis court with my team or at work with my colleagues.
I have always loved being creative in my thought processes, working as a member of a team and showing my stamina when it comes to complex topics. It is not least due to my personal interests and my colleagues with whom I quite literally ‘productively’ collaborate that I am today fulfilling my ambitions within a young, modern company!
I accompany the creation of a jewellery collection from the very start. Here, my job demands that I work swiftly and precisely, while deploying economical thought processes with regards to my tasks. In addition to coordinating information from the various departments such as Design, Scheduling, Graphic Design, Marketing and PR, we are in touch with our vendors regarding product data and specifications, product samples, prototypes and delivery dates on a daily basis, checking the information and providing feedback.
Those wearing an item of THOMAS SABO jewellery are making a personal statement. And so are those working for us. Around 1,800 colleagues (status: 2018) have made the THOMAS SABO Group what it is today: one of the most innovative international lifestyle brands. We create, market and distribute our jewellery and watches collections ourselves and therefore offer a broad range of professions and career paths.
