In a team of buyers, planners and analysts, you are at your best.

Beyond a competitive salary, working at G-Star brings many other perks and exciting opportunities: an awesome and diverse team that collaborates to change the game; a work environment that offers room for fun, inspiration and innovation; a clothing budget; a healthy, fresh and delicious lunch and even discounts in various fitness clubs and last but not least, a discount on a new bicycle.
What will happen next:
We will thoroughly review your CV.
We have a large expat community at G-Star, so please apply in English.
When we hopefully find what we are looking for, we will call you for a chat and if it’s a good fit, we’ll plan our first interview.
Because we’re very curious how you’d survive a mission impossible, we ask you to prepare a real-life business case in a follow-up interview.
Having an agile mindset is very important at G-Star, therefore we ask you to participate in an (online) Learning Agility Assessment.
When we’re ready to commit to each other, we’ll finalize the terms we’ve discussed and we’ll explain to you how to order your first pair of jeans from the G-Star employee store. Good luck.
