Gucci presents to RBS student its graduate program
Rome Business School students had the opportunity to meet Gucci, learn more about the company and get insights about the Luxury Fashion sector. However it was not an ordinary introduction, as students learned more about the unique graduate placement program Gucci has designed to get to know talents and best candidates, a program involves some of the best national and international schools, among them Rome Business School.
How does it work?
Once again this year, Gucci will select the best talents, graduates of the last two years, who will have access to a 24-month training and mentoring program leading to employment. Selected candidates will work in close contact with store managers and will alternate theoretical training with practical experience in Gucci stores, experiencing a variety of roles. Gucci GRADE, the Gucci retail graduate program, is the fast track to a shining career in Fashion Retail Management towards becoming a Team Manager. From the world of visual merchandising and operations to client engagement and retail performance, participants will also have access to tailored development programs offered by the Gucci Global Retail Academy. All of this while travelling within Europe’s capitals to iconic destinations and building valuable relationships and networks.
The program will be running in EMEA (Barcelona, Dubai, Doha, Hamburg, London, Madrid, Milan, Munich, Paris) and starting February 23, young graduates from across Europe will be able to send their applications to the Gucci Grade website. Applications will remain open until March 13, 2022. The application selection process, which will run from April to May 2022, will help identify 10 candidates who will take part in the new training program from June 6, 2022.
How do you stand out?
While the program is open to all graduates, degrees in Fashion, Luxury, Sales or Business Administration all put candidates in an advantageous position, according to our guests.
Giulia Canola, EMEA Talent and Development Advisor at Gucci affirmed “We are looking for those with excellent soft skills, the ability to collaborare and be supportive is really important as well as the availability to learn and empower others. It is vital for the role to have an international and multicultural mindset.”
Giuseppe Grossi, Head of Talent Acquisition HQ at Gucci also stated:
“To me the graduation grade is not the first requirement, an experience abroad or a volunteering experience is a big plus for us. We look at the person as a whole, not just as a professional”
Students were thrilled and excited to learn more about the program and asked many questions regarding requirements and the company in general, pleased to learn about the Gucci philosophy and learn about its international and diverse environment, perfectly matching the Rome Business School spirit.
