A Schmidt showroom manager is responsible for ensuring your showroom is a proud testament to the Schmidt brand. You’ll oversee sales, HR, recruitment, training and development, finance, and admin to make your showroom a success story. 

You’re a conductor. You listen, direct, manage, motivate, and guide your showroom team towards the ultimate goal: 100% happy customers and 100% happy employees (and the soaring profitability that comes with that). 

Our showroom managers are why our customers trust they’ll always get the same high-quality Schmidt experience, whichever showroom they choose. You’re why every Schmidt showroom feels like Schmidt, with a strong family spirit and values. 

You’re the reason for our customers’ success; your team’s success; our success.

  • Exciting territory opportunities with fantastic success potential
  • Massive sense of ownership over your showroom; huge job satisfaction
  • Independent leadership position with broad responsibility

What gives me the most satisfaction in my role is being able to please the people around me, whether they’re Schmidt employees or our customers. I believe I’ve enjoyed success here because I am a positive person and in difficult moments I try to keep smiling, to make sure that we all pull together and move in the right direction as a team. In the end, we always find the right solution!
ABOUT THE ROLE

What does a day at work look like?

Being a Schmidt showroom manager is a rich and rewarding role – and a broad one. You’ll drive strategy and day-to-day operations of the showroom, taking ownership over profitability and leading your showroom from strength to strength.

  • Sales: You’ll implement and drive forward the sales strategy and marketing plan, setting the showroom’s goals and individual objectives for your team and motivating performance to achieve them. You’ll design and sell your own interiors projects as well as being a brilliant sales coach.
  • Management: You’ll inspire, guide, and motivate your team to drive sales growth. You’re responsible for recruitment, employee onboarding, performance management, evaluation and implementing training programmes. You’ll lead daily, weekly, and monthly sales meetings to get the best from your team.
  • Operations: You’ll set up internal systems and processes, oversee compliance with organisational procedures, build relationships with suppliers, and ensure profitability of your showroom. You’ll ensure your showroom constantly meets the high Schmidt standards – and is a proud representative of our trusted brand.

Showroom Manager
What I like most is the organisational aspect of managing the showroom. I was a sales consultant for a long time and I wanted to try something else! I had the chance to apply for a job as a manager in another of the group’s showrooms, 20 km from my old showroom. I took some management training courses and then I was on my way! We started out as a team of five staff, and today there are nine of us. This kind of progress is very exciting.
