Exciting opportunities in a dynamic industry
Saga Furs wants to recruit talented people who can work in a challenging international environment.
Saga Furs has approximately 140 permanent employees located in various spots around the globe. More than half of them work at our headquarters in Vantaa, Finland. Others are located in the countries where we source pelts, important manufacturing countries, key markets and the fashion capitals of the world.
Along with management and administration positions, the staff at Vantaa work in fur sorting and grading, warehousing and security.
During the fur-sorting season, from November through May, Saga Furs employs more than 200 additional people.
We train new staff members to develop their skills in every phase of the sorting process. Many of them return to our team year after year.
At each auction, Saga Furs hires 100-200 auction assistants. Their task is to assist international fur buyers when they inspect pelts prior to the actual selling, and possibly some duties during the auction itself.
Auction assistants are employed for up to one week at a time during the 4-5 auction periods each year.
Saga Furs has more than 600 permanent or seasonal employees during peak periods.
