I’m Federica, one of the second generation ITP trainees. I got in touch with H&M during a career day in my school: I remember all other companies looked so similar to each other while H&M was showcasing the latest Conscious Collection. It immediately looked like a fun company to work with and it was!
I joined the company in 2013 and since then it has been a fantastic journey. I first had my introduction in Sweden where I had the chance to get some insights in the three ITP functions and then I started my adventure in Hong Kong where I did both my placements in Leasing and Merchandising. After the program I was offered to stay in Hong Kong as a Menswear Merchandise Manager, and after one year in this position I moved to the China team where I’m currently responsible for Kidswear.
Why would you recommend ITP to someone else?
Because, if you work hard and you get results, the ITP program can open infinite doors in H&M and you will get to know so many different sides of the business! You can among many different roles end up being a Merchandise Manager in Hong Kong, a Leasing Manager in Chile or an Expansion Controller in Italy!
