    HR Transformation Retail Manager

    We are ASICS. And our five letters have meaning. ‘Anima Sana in Corpore Sano’ or a Sound Mind in a Sound Body.

    We’ve always believed in the positive benefits of movement. And this year, we’ve recommitted to this founding purpose, supporting more people to experience the transformative power of movement, on the body and the mind.

    So, this is your chance to join a truly purpose-driven brand.

    As HR Transformation Retail Manager, you’ll strive to give the retail department the tools and training they need to deliver a best-in-class customer experience. Your natural caregiver qualities will help you stay in tune with your colleagues’ professional needs, while your problem-solving skills will ensure that they’re always met. Within ASICS EMEA you are the go-to person for the optimization of retail-related HR processes and systems.

    You’ll call upon your impeccable people, change management skills and ability to see the bigger picture. To build strong relationships with your co-workers and several internal departments and prioritise tasks according to business cases.

    You could be the right person for this role regardless of your age, nationality, religious beliefs or gender identification. ASICS welcomes diversity in our people, their backgrounds and life experiences.

    Can you move minds?
    This is a critical people and culture role, particularly in light of the ever-changing retail landscape and the impact on the way that we do business and how we need to develop creative solutions for our store teams to continue to deliver profitable results. We need an exceptional candidate to advise, partner and support our retail teams to fulfil their potential and make a lasting difference in our customer experience. Someone who speaks the retail language and has the personality to get things done internally.

    Based at our EMEA headquarters in Randstad, Netherlands and reporting to Lisa, Director of HR, as part of the role you’ll:
    • Partner with Area and Store Managers to advise on their operational and strategical HR needs.
    • Review and align Retail HR needs across different markets within EMEA.
    • Equip our frontline retail staff with the tools they need to perform at the highest level.
    • Ensure a smooth process for personnel budgeting, annual merit increases and performance management.
    • Draw up Health and Safety guidelines to protect our retail staff.

    Does this sound like you?
    • You’re people-focused. You always ask and listen.
    • You’re solutions-driven. There’s no such thing as a problem that can’t be solved.
    • You’re unflappable. You’re able to remain calm in pressurised situations.
    • You’re always proactive. You identify and make opportunities out of nothing.
    • You’re emotionally intelligent. You’re naturally empathetic.

    What we’re looking for
    • A university or bachelor’s degree in any discipline.
    • Fluency in English, both written and spoken.
    • At least five years’ experience in a retail role with a talent for people and culture.
    • A track record of working across Europe in a pre.
    • Good Microsoft Excel skills.
    • Proven background in retail strategy and execution.

    Join our team
    When you join ASICS, you join a family and become part of something special. We know that sport means so much more than physical activity alone. It’s about coming together, sharing experiences and enhancing our all-round wellbeing.

    That’s why we practice what we preach. You’ll join a company focused on creating an inclusive environment that fosters diversity and individualism, healthy bodies and healthy minds. As an employer, we offer a range of benefits and services to our people to experience the positive impact of movement, every day.
