Welcome to the ACT Sales Associates Programme

At Cartier, we value diverse experiences. We have created the Academy of Commercial Talents (ACT) to connect with talent from different industries, as well as to offer a career path into our Maison and the world of luxury retail. You will learn all about our boutique operations in a client-facing role, creating a platform for a flourishing career with us. Working with our passionate teams, you will create the stories that spark new memories. Join the luxury industry: take ownership of your career and gain new experiences.



Consumer aspirations are evolving luxury retail, making it an exciting time to join our Maison. Working in our boutiques, every interaction in our teams or with one of our clients gives you the opportunity to develop. As an ambassador of our values, you will be responsible for building the loyalty and relationships that keep us one step ahead. Upon succesful completion of the Sales Associate Programme, you will embark on your career in one of our boutiques, growing your skills and strengthening the future of our Maison.



We have created this disruptive programme as an immersion for those entering the world of luxury with no prior experience in our industry. We are looking for people from diverse educational backgrounds to work in a collaborative environment. Prior client experience in retail, sales, hospitality, aviation, customer support or similar will be a strong added value. You understand people’s motivations and are a good communicator. You are emotionally intelligent, curious, have a strong sense of team spirit, and are driven by your development. What is key is integrity. You are passionate to maintain the loyalty that keeps our clients returning. To evolve in the future within the Maison, we are also looking for people with business acumen.


The first step is a 360° set of short, engaging, and innovative assessments. Our objective is to understand your problem solving skills, attention to detail, workplace behavioral traits and preferences, and emotional understanding.

Finally, you are invited for a final interview to receive feedback on the different assessments. We will also ask you to participate in concrete, retail based role-plays. This will allow us to deepen our understanding of your fit for the programme.

The next step in the process is an on-demand interview. This will give you the flexibility and opportunity to introduce yourself and tell us about your client-facing experience. You decide when, where and on which device to record.

If successful, you will be made an offer to join our exciting Sales Associate Programme.
