LVMH wants more people to join its Métiers d’Excellence programme

LVMH, the luxury beauty owner behind Christian Dior and Acqua di Parma, has said it wants to invest in its Italian workforce by on-boarding 2,000 employees over the next three years.

With the peak of the pandemic now behind many beauty conglomerates, the cosmetics international is now reaffirming the goals of its Métiers d’Excellence programme – particularly in Italy.

The vocational training scheme, with a work and study format helps workers gain creative, craft and retail skills, developing employability for members.

“As in all countries where we exercise our unique savoir-faire, there is a pressing need in Italy to attract people to our Métiers d’Excellence, which span exceptional creative, craft and retail skills,” said LVMH’s EVP Human Resources and Synergies, Chantal Gaemperle.

“LVMH expects to recruit over 2,000 people in Italy in these professions over the next three years.

“This is why it is essential for LVMH to take resolute actions to heighten the appeal of these métiers and ensure that this exceptional savoir-faire is passed onto new generations.”

The news comes off the back of the luxury French company’s recruitment drive for younger team members.

Back in September it said that it would aim to hire 25,000 people under the age of 30 by the end of 2022.

To support this, LVMH is prioritising training and access to employment through its ‘craft the future’ action plan, and has opened its educational platform to all young people across the world.
