Periwinkle Group collaborates with Rustomjee Academy for careers in retail
Posted On: 31-01-2012 00:00:00 12

In a first-of-its kind initiative for the retail sector, the Periwinkle Group, comprising companies such as Planet Retail (Guess, Next, Debenhams, Accessorize & Nautica), Bagzone, Samsonite, American Tourister and Lavie, has partnered with the Rustomjee Academy for Global Careers (RAGC), to train underprivileged students. They have offered guaranteed job placements to 300 students in a span of two years across its various retail formats. The course begins from February 15th 2012 at the Don Bosco Technical Institute in Kurla, Mumbai, Maharashtra. Over three months students, with a minimum qualification of the eighth grade, will be professionally trained in both theory and practical aspects of retail. As part of their internship, they will get on-the-job-training through a self-funding program at the select stores. Students will also receive a stipend of Rs. 3000/- per month during the internship with the additional opportunity to win scholarship and sponsorship. On completion of the course, the students will be offered job opportunities as fashion consultants or sales executives within the group. The programs designed by RAGC will be conducted over regular lectures, hands on training, and project work in collaboration with Don Bosco’s Technical Institute. The institute will also organize field trips as part of the curriculum. A unique feature of this will be an internship with stipend enabling a candidate to earn his fees back while he/she learns.

The Periwinkle group operates various formats such as Shop-in-shops, Exclusive Brand Outlets and Department Stores in the international brand space. Students that wish to apply can call on the following numbers for more details: Asmita 09323232870 and Ashish 9221904624.
