About the company:

Founded in 1969 by Bernd Freier, the s.Oliver Group has developed in just a few decades into one of the leading European fashion companies. We dress and delight people around the globe with style & class.

All brands under one roof

As a large family of companies, the s.Oliver Group unites different lifestyles that are reflected in the brands s.Oliver RED LABEL, s.Oliver BLACK LABEL, Q/S designed by, TRIANGLE, comma and LIEBESKIND BERLIN. Since 2003, the s.Oliver Group has also had its own subsidiaries in Austria, Switzerland and Benelux.

s.Oliver RED LABEL

The s.Oliver RED LABEL is a casual collection that bears the traditional red s.Oliver label. The brand is easy-going, authentic, and easy to mix and match. It is also more colourful and sporty than other brands in this segment. The s.Oliver RED LABEL is very strong in knitwear, jersey and denim, as well as in blouses and shirts. Outdoor, Bodywear, Junior, Licences and Accessories complete the portfolio.

s.Oliver BLACK LABEL

The s.Oliver BLACK LABEL is an event-oriented collection offering great value for money. Easy to understand and democratic in fit with specific focuses on modern business & occasion clothing. The looks impress with high-quality materials and set the same high standards for quality and wearability.

Q/S designed by

Q/S designed by stands for people who live, communicate and know how to make a statement. Exciting changes of direction, a desire for new sounds, and a distinctive sense of style motivate the makers of the brand every day. This creates fashion that combines urban cool with the “next big thing”. Complications are definitely not what we want, but it also shouldn’t be boring.

TRIANGLE

TRIANGLE represents discerning casual chic with an informal, feminine coolness, and therefore offers women a fashion style that suits their lives, their personalities and their bodies. TRIANGLE wants to bring the zeitgeist of current trends to fashion-conscious women.

comma

comma, feminine fashion for modern women. Paris, London, New York – comma represents looks that are inspired by the great centres of fashion. Whether it’s a business look, casual style or glamorous event – this ravishing feminine fashion suits any occasion and is always something special. With twelve collections a year it delivers non-stop inspiration for discerning women who are enthusiastic about fashion.

LIEBESKIND BERLIN

LIEBESKIND BERLIN reflects the variety of the German capital in every single part of its collection. Whether accessories or ready-to-wear – you always sense that special attitude to life that arises from a sense of cool, individuality, and a certain nonchalance. Combined with a feel for fashion and trends, that’s LIEBESKIND BERLIN.

Where the threads are woven together

Our different brands bring up to twelve collections onto the market a year, all ideally fitted, excellent quality and offering outstanding value for money. This is quite a challenge and demands a whole spectrum of activities and issues to be managed and handled by our staff.

From Rottendorf to the World

The heart of our business is located in Rottendorf, near Würzburg, Germany, and all of the various departments – from Human Resources to Marketing, to Sales & Distribution – are based here. This is the birthplace of all of our products; they are developed here by different design teams before going off to be manufactured, and after that distributed centrally via Logistics to the relevant POS (Point of Sale).

GLOBAL SOURCING
The Global Sourcing department organises the worldwide purchasing side of the business. Besides all of the various aspects classically involved in the buying process, the Global Sourcing team also works closely together with our international agency network in the production countries. The remit involves diplomatic negotiations, networking and a large degree of communication. There is an extensive need for coordination with the many internal and external interfaces.

PRODUCT
The Product department deals with the complex product development processes for the various products groups. Many different decisions have to be made along the line from initial design to sample production and commissioning a garment to be manufactured. This calls for a wide range of skills: creativity, fabric and material know-how, an aptitude for crafts and familiarity with the markets. Various steps are required along the way, and much coordinating needs to be done, given the multitude of interfaces.

MARKETING
The Marketing department creates tailor-made marketing strategies for each of our brands and manages the product portfolio. Whilst the Brand Management team plans 360° marketing mix sales strategies, the Creative Marketing team comes up with the matching visual marketing campaigns and develops innovative and creative ways to advertise our merchandise. The Trade Marketing team is responsible for adapting and realising the concepts at the stage where they are ultimately to appeal to our customers: at the retail stage. Social media help them to focus on the end consumer and allow the targeted management of the online channels. The team supports various marketing activities with innovative ideas and communicates with our end consumers. Another important mainstay of external communication is Public Relations – in contact with both end-users and the media. This team handles the definition and communication of all subjects concerning the company and its brands.

ADMINISTRATION
The Administration division is the enabler that allows other colleagues to focus on creating strong products that are successful on the market. The administration division encompasses the departments Financial Control/Accounting, Finance, Human Resources, Legal and Information Services/IT.

FINANCIAL CONTROL/ACCOUNTING
The Financial Control/Accounting department records all of the company’s business transactions in figures, which are then monitored and evaluated in order to generate information that forms the basis for business decisions and actions.

FINANCE
The Finance area is dedicated to analysing the various business activities along the value creation chain and producing financial accounts, and managing the cash flow.

HUMAN RESOURCES
The Human Resources team is subdivided into the departments HR Shared Service Centre, HR Talent Acquisition, HR Consulting, HR Controlling, HR Legal and HR Integrated Care (canteen, kindergarten, health centre and reception). The departments work together to create an environment with which our employees identify, to which they can contribute, and in which they can develop and feel good. Because satisfied employees are critical to the success of a company. Through individual mentoring and a variety of services, we help you to balance your professional and private goals.

INFORMATION SERVICES/IT
The Information Services/IT departments ensure that the company’s entire technology infrastructures, which support all business processes used by the company, are operational and up-to-date, and that the interfaces between various systems within the company are in good working order. Safe data management and virtual communication can only work with the right technology. In addition, each member of staff has to be equipped with the right hardware and software that allows them to do their job in the best possible way. The Helpdesk Team assists with minor and major everyday problems regarding the correct use of the systems, thereby ensuring that working with IT is as easy as one-two-three. In the IT area, the s.Oliver Group also relies on internal know-how and a competent, multitalented team that is able to expertly realise small local projects as well as major, company-wide ones.

SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT
Supply Chain Management oversees all the distribution and logistics processes for the s.Oliver Group, which has representatives around the globe in over 30 countries. Prompt delivery of goods, which in some cases have to cover thousands of miles, is managed via our logistics centre at our headquarters in Rottendorf. Here, stocks are managed and coordination with retail and logistics partners is part of the daily schedule. This involves mastering complexity and tests project management skills to the limit.

DIGITAL BUSINESS
Digital Business coordinates the sale of our products via our own online channels and external platforms. As this is a particularly fast-paced market, the online side of the business depends on instant responses to changes in demand and needs correspondingly flexible planning. End consumers expect immediate answers to their queries, which are dealt with by the Customer Relationship Management department. The online environment demands constant change, so creative visual and verbal communication approaches must therefore be developed and realised promptly.

Distribution and sales hand in hand

The s.Oliver Group is a vertically-integrated business and handles the entire value-creation chain from product development to distribution. All our activities are focused on the needs of end consumers. The Sales department manages the various distribution channels on a strategic and an international level, as well as the cooperation with different trading partners.

Multifaceted sales channels for our brands

The collections of our attractive brands, s.Oliver RED LABEL, s.Oliver BLACK LABEL, Q/S designed by, TRIANGLE, comma, comma CI and LIEBESKIND BERLIN, are sold in our own retail stores, in partner stores, indirectly shop-in-shop and also in wholesale areas and by mail order. In addition, our online shops www.soliver.de, www.comma-store.de and www.liebeskind-berlin.com deliver new styles to our customers every day.

Ideal advice in professionally designed retail areas

In our stores and outlets as well as our shop-in-shops we advise customers and help them to find the style that suits them best in an attractively designed shop environment. The store display has to be changed frequently to match the latest collections, and adapted to match the store or retail space size. In order to guarantee our customers an unforgettable sales experience, we require a large number of qualified staff throughout Germany and abroad:

  • Store Manager / Filialleiter
  • Assistant Store Manager / Stellvertretender Filialleiter
  • Floor Manager / Flächenverantwortlicher
  • Visual Store Merchandiser / Gestalter für visuelles Marketing
  • Outfit Consultant / Verkäufer
  • Temporary help for Sales
