Love watches? So do we. If you’ve ever dreamed of working with luxury timepieces on a daily basis, read on. Chrono24, the world’s leading online marketplace for luxury watches, is hiring!
Every day, Chrono24 brings together more than 500,000 watch lovers from all over the world. The site offers around 475,000 watches for sale from over 3,000 dealers and numerous collectors worldwide. A new era in buying watches has begun. Chrono24 is not only part of the change, but it is also leading the line.
What can you expect?
As Head of VIP-Service, you will have the opportunity to assemble your own team, which will support our top customers in buying and selling high-priced luxury watches. Together with your team, you will offer these special customers an exclusive experience by providing them with individual support through a variety of communication channels when trading watches and building up their collections.
You should expect to work with a multi-lingual team that possesses a deep affinity for luxury products and services. Providing an enjoyable and memorable luxury experience for all customers is paramount. This includes supporting customers over the phone, by email, messenger services, and even in person.
Your colleagues will support you with their know-how in many areas such as HR, IT, or marketing, giving you access to well-running processes. At the same time, you also have the freedom to create something new and bring in your own ideas.
Chrono24 intends for its attractive Frankfurt offices to become the hub of our VIP service. However, if you see the potential for suitable personnel at another location, alternative suggestions are welcome.
