LVMH to recruit 25,000 people under 30 by the end of 2022
LVMH has announced plans to recruit 25,000 young people under the age of 30 worldwide, including nearly 5,000 through internships or apprenticeships, by the end of 2022.
The luxury fashion group, which owns brands including Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior, Celine, Givenchy and Fendi, confirmed it will achieve its plans by accelerating its HR and corporate social responsibility programmes for those age groups.
LVMH will start by strengthening its “Craft the future” action plan for young people of all backgrounds. After a successful pilot project, the Group will open up access to its educational platform for all young people around the world, regardless of their background or training, to learn more about the various luxury trades and prepare for roles in the industry.
LVMH will also focus on preserving and passing on skills and recruiting in crafts and sales professions with its “Métiers d’Excellence” program.
In keeping with its commitment to passing on skills, the Group is continuing to help young people build their careers through several initiatives carried out in partnership with schools and universities. Its “Craft the future” action plan is aimed equally at new graduates and others who have yet to find a job, as well as all everyone with a passion for trades based on excellence, expertise and craftsmanship.
Chantal Gaemperle, Director of Human Resources and Synergies, LVMH, commented: “For the past 16 years, LVMH has stood as the most attractive company for business school students in the Universum France ranking. At a time when the COVID-19 crisis has particularly affected the younger generations and impacted their employability, LVMH intends to accompany and support them in a concrete way to build their careers. This is the purpose of our “Craft the future” action plan. Beyond the recruitment figures, it is essential for the Group to commit to the employability of young people by improving the visibility and knowledge of our expert trades.”
