The KLiNGEL Group

Everyone has to start small – even Robert Klingel when he began a small trading business with only a few articles back in 1900. One of the largest mail-order companies in Germany has developed over the years out of this small textile business, . Headquartered in Pforzheim, the KLiNGEL Group is represented world-wide with different catalogue brands. We offer our discerning clients an extensive range of fashion, jewelry and decorative accessories in a multi-channel distance trade. Equally challenging are the business challenges that face our approximately 2,000 employees on a daily basis.


Career opportunities in creative purchasing for students of LDT Nagold

The KLiNGEL Group consistently promotes the career development of their employees. Our success does not thrive only due to our entrepreneurial skills, but above all, from our good, motivated and performance-oriented team. The consistent development of young talent is particularly important to us.


We have therefore worked successfully with LDT Nagold for many years with their Dual Degree Program Business Administration Textiles (m/f) and their trainee programmes. We would like to continue to work together in shaping the future of the KLiNGEL Group. In addition to a direct entry, we offer the possibility as a part of our 18-month trainee programmes, to become familiar with the structure and processes of a brand-oriented, internationally active mail-order company in the area of creative purchasing. The main task of creative purchasing is the development of the ideal collections for our customers. In purchasing, you need to have a passion for fashion, a nose for trends and an affinity for numbers and mobility. In purchasing, you are at home all over the world. In addition to the creative design of collections, evaluating important key figures is a part of our daily business. This exciting combination leads to our lasting corporate success.

As a part of our trainee programmes, you will be individually supervised, encouraged and involved in daily business activities. You will learn to take on more responsibility step by step and how to successfully complete project-based tasks. Seminars, workshops, mentoring, and interesting assignments here or abroad, round out your qualifications – the best conditions for your further success with us!
