DISCOVER VACANCIES

A few months ago, we outgrew Vivian's old nursery and moved into our new 450sqm space in Hochspeyer. From here we produce, finish and pack our beautiful DIY boxes every day and send them all over the world. Not only to Germany, but also to France, Austria, Switzerland, and every now and then to Thailand, Australia or Canada.

And we are far from finished!

Currently there is only one direction for us: high up!

Be part of it and shape the next growth steps with us, such as setting up our new premises, using new production machines, developing and implementing new designs and much more!

What you can definitely expect in the process:

About BAGS & PIECES 

At BAGS & PIECES we offer DIY boxes for the production of accessories made of genuine leather - without any previous knowledge, but still with a professional result. In our production we cut out the leather with our machine and our tools so that it can then be refined and packed in the DIY box according to the customer's individual order and sent to the customer.

With the Do It Yourself Box, our video tutorials and the illustrated step by step instructions, the customer can make her own high-quality leather handbag at home and then hold a unique piece in her hands that no one else has. 

Since our go-live in October 2020, we have had a great response to our concept and have already fulfilled more than 1,500 orders and wishes. But there's still more to come! If you want to be part of this rapid growth and support us in making even more people aware of BAGS & PIECES and our concept with cool and targeted marketing, then apply now! 

What to expect: 

With this internship, we offer you the opportunity to develop and contribute your own ideas in a flat hierarchy, to manage and supervise projects on your own responsibility, and to continuously develop yourself together with us. You can help decide how you structure your daily work and your tasks, and you can put your theoretical knowledge into practice in everyday start-up life in direct collaboration with the founder Vivian.

The cool thing about short lines of communication and flexible structures is that your ideas and the results of your work quickly become visible and the impact measurable. If you are looking forward to this responsibility in a job where you can get involved instead of just watching, and if you really want to achieve results with your work, then you have come to the right place. By the way, they don't look bad on your CV for future challenges ☺️ 

Unless, of course, you want to continue gaining experience at BAGS & PIECES! We are looking for both working students and online marketing managers in permanent positions.
