Hermès employees share their voices
Build bespoke career paths
“Hermès gave me a chance, even though I didn’t tick all the boxes. From leather-worker to workshop manager, I have had various roles within the house, in France and overseas. This bespoke career path has helped me forge very strong bonds of trust with the teams.”
Manuela, director of the Hermès workshops in Paris
Join a responsible house
“The leather workshops we build are first and foremost designed for the artisans: they must be as beautiful and durable as the objects that are made there. Establishing new sites has a positive impact on artisan mobility and regional vitality.”
Claudine, head of sustainable construction at Hermès
Be part of a collective adventure
"As a sales associate in the Boston store, then assistant to the director of the new Orlando store, I am experiencing the Hermès adventure in my home city. I’ve found the perfect balance between my personal life, my coworkers and the community of Hermès customers that I love guiding as they discover the house.”
Cordell, director’s assistant at the Hermès store in Orlando, United States
“I like a challenge. From Guangzhou to Shenzhen via Changsha, from accounting to store management, I have always been mindful of building a special relationship with the teams, and I take extra care to listen carefully to everyone, sales associates and customers alike. Hermès has given me the chance to play my own part in a real odyssey.”
