We create the DNA of the products
HSE – That means 17,000 articles a year and an incredible variety of products. Whether beauty, home & living, household, wellness, jewelry or fashion, exclusive designer collections, popular private brands or product innovations that offer something completely new: With your instinct for the right product, you create the customer experiences that make us so successful. Through any end device. Because as an omnichannel retailer, we inspire, inform, and entertain our customers not only via TV, but also in our online store and on our social media platforms.
The Purchasing department – or Brand & Product Development and Sourcing, as we call it in-house – is one of the largest in our company for good reason: more than 120 employees ensure that we offer a wide product range. It is a constant challenge to meet the needs of our customers and to continue to inspire. Because what might be in vogue today may be out tomorrow.
Purchasing: Find future trends and develop existing ones
You have full responsibility for the product range. It is your job to find the trends of tomorrow and to develop existing ones. You select suppliers and producers and create new theme worlds and show formats for your product innovations.
The development of in-house brands and products is also on your agenda. In addition to corresponding market knowledge, you have a knack for which product, which formula, or which concept will inspire our customers and drive sales.
In professional cooperation with the teams from Planning, Quality Management, Logistics and our specialists from TV Production, you make special buying experiences possible.
You work not only across departments, but also across national borders. With clear purpose, good analysis, and the right strategy, you look for products and suppliers in international procurement markets. You are inspired at trade fairs worldwide and always introduce new ideas to the company. As you see: Your influence on the success of HSE is immense, because here in the Purchasing team we create the DNA of the products. How good are we at this? You will find out in real time. When our products go on sale live.
Product development: Always the right fit
In close exchange with the product managers from the Purchasing department, you ensure early on in the product cycle that new items meet all requirements.
For initial samples in the Fashion department, you check the fit, for example, so that size 38 ultimately fits like a size 38. With home and decorative items, you also make sure that the materials, sizes, shapes, and functions work right from the start.
In our fast-paced business, we need people who are just like us. Up for something new and for change. Because we are also constantly reinventing ourselves.
Of course, you will have plenty of creative freedom in your job. Ample space for efficient teamwork and a special corporate culture are only one part of it. What other benefits do we offer? Find out here.
