In Watchmaking circles there cannot be too many as appetising placements in which to commit your horological career .
Globally WEMPE are famous for their families independence , and are a rarity as they possess a manufacturing heritage alongside that of retail.
Here in London their reputation has seen them move from being ‘International’ to today being ‘Londoners ‘ first choice most favoured ‘Family Jeweller’ destination.
Within their luxurious store setting they have been one of the first ‘on the street ‘ to operate a dedicated Watch After -Sales service facility - which is staffed by well -trained professional Watchmakers.
It is perhaps unusual to encourage direct access to a workshop team when required - but the reassurance this gives to visiting clientele is immense and assists with localised WEMPE brand building .
The qualities that are sought are possibly no surprise - we’d encourage applications from those certified and accredited be it BHI , WOSTEP and specific training sign off from any one of the fifteen watch brands that
presently are stocked would of course be advantageous.
Your watchmaking skills will be approaching if not already the best ‘operational standard ’ and each individual will be expected to converse with customers when required together with dealing with a certain amount of required ‘job by job’ administration.
The team at WEMPE throughout the business are encouraged to absolutely think long term about their future tenure with this much envied Watch & Jewellery business.
Training & development is a respected employer area of future investment and once time is bench /counter served all parties could potentially be enriched further by additional courses run either in-house or by one of their key suppliers.
The store has also recently been visionary in moving forward with its trading hours - increasing accessibility of their stores brand & services - the watchmaking team are included in this and like the retail staff are placed on a rota accordingly.
The variety and quality of bench challenge is really exhilarating and to build long term your watchmaking professionalism within one of Bond Street’s most admired names is pretty much without UK match.
Do feel most welcome to forward your watchmaker credentials - we are interested and very respectful of your required career dedication…
