The SIS group, which specialises in the luxury sector, has announced the recruitment of 450 employees over the coming three years, or an average of 150 new recruitments per year, for leather goods assembly positions. For this purpose, the company has also established its own in-house training school. The training lasts three months and allows new employees to learn the practical and specific gestures of the leather goods trade.

The SIS group currently employs around a thousand people at the Etalans, Avoudrey and Valdahon sites (Doubs) in the manufacture of leather goods (handbags), small leather goods (wallets, purses, phone cases, and so on) and various accessories (key rings, leather jewellery, home decor, office sets and other everyday items).
