We welcome our new team member in Content Management at F&P Stock Solution GmbH! The tasks of a Content Manager are quite diverse. It ranges from the creation of new online content and its implementation, to the support of existing platforms and finally their constant optimization. She, or rather in the case of F&P, "Joy" takes care of the creation of content, but above all plans and manages the image, text and multimedia content that should appeare on the website and keeps it up to date. In case of F&P Stock Solution, this means dealing with topics such as wholesale clothing, wholesale shoes, wholesale overstock, overstock clearance, fashion outlet events (designer outlet, Fashion Flash) and everything that has to do with fashion. The main focus is on brand name wholesale. F&P is one of the world's leading suppliers (wholesale clothing, wholesale shoes) in the topics of overstocks and leftover sale. Due to our wide network of suppliers and customers, we can rely on a large number of brand manufacturers, retailers and online platforms in the B2B leftover market . The domestic and foreign customers of F&P appreciate the discretion, reliability and professionalism with which we work. Some traits which are sometimes hard to find in the overstock market, as our two CEO’s Julius Göllner and Ole Schneikart learned in their past professional history.   F&P offers individual solutions for both, buyers and vendors of overstocks, such as clarifying questions such as: Where can I buy returned goods and overstocks? How do I get to brand name returns and overstocks? What do I do with my liquidations, overstock shoes and/or overstock clothing? How can I protect my brand, despite the sale of my overstocks and returns? How can I quickly get rid of my customer returns, liquidation goods or overstocks? For all questions F&P Stock Solution is finding fast answers. In the password protected online B2B-Shop of F&P, overstock buyers can find a good overview of our currently available goods. Of course with all the resprective restictions. Again, the Content Managers of F&P, such as Joy, are busy maintaining the page. They create product descriptions for the goods in the warehouse, maintain photos of textile (remnants: women's clothing, designer clothing, children's clothing and many more), shoes (remnants: cheap name brand shoes, women's shoes, sneakers, etc.) and pay attention to up-to-dateness and quality.   A few facts about Joy!   Joy, our new back up in Content Management, is 22 years old, a "real Berlin ladie" and has been working at F&P since the beginning of August.   "I'm Joy, 22, born in Berlin and recently finished my apprenticeship as an Industrial Clerk this summer. I had the dream of becoming a Fashion Designer when I was young, but after having graduated from high school, I discarded it. But fashion, beauty and social media have always been a huge passion of mine, so I am super happy to be able to turn my hobby into a career. At F&P Stock Solution I have the ideal conditions for this, I am encouraged individually and from the start I was able to contribute a lot myself. Working as a Content Manager is never boring here. Every day there are new tasks and challenges to master. The mix at F&P from wholesale and overstock for textiles and shoes of great designer brands is perfect for fashionistas like me. I have daily contact with well-known brands, write detailed product descriptions and can directly look in the warehouse at the brands goods that I want to visualize potential customers in the online shop for remaining stock directly. This way, I not only get to know our brand clearance items in detail, but also the quality behind the products.   The team at F&P supported and welcomed me from the beginning. I am looking forward to the upcoming time!"   The entire F&P team, especially Julius and Ole, wish Joy an exciting and happy time with a lot of great experiences. ...

Project Management at F&P Stock Solution - Have a look behind the scenes at Fashion Flash (Designer Outlet) by F&P! F&P Stock Solution GmbH is one of the world's leading suppliers (wholesale clothing, wholesale shoes) for overstock and remaining stock sales. We take care of overstock clearance, liquidation, customer returns and remaining inventory from top level brands. We work fast, professional, sustainable, holistic and silent. We sell our products via two sales channels: B2B (wholesale pallets) and B2C (end customers) via our event series "Fashion Flash". Our Fashion Flash is a big popup outlet event (Designer Outlet), where we turn top level locations all over Germany into an extraordinary fashion outlet (cheap name brand shoes, textiles and accessories) for women in just two days. Champagne at the reception, something sweet for in between, partners for beauty and lifestyle, in the background some music, all of this makes shopping at Fashion Flash an experience for the ladies. We combine the advantages of Outlet Online Shopping with those of "real" shopping, making the event unique. It’s not only a closeout, it’s a Designer Outlet Store for fashionistas. We need a lot of know-how as well as motivated and dedicated project managers to implement all the Fashion Flash events that F&P Stock Solution holds out each year. Viktoria, a project manager at F&P Stock Solution and responsible for Fashion Flash (Designer Outlet), tells us exclusively something about her job. Learn something about Viktoria, Project Manager at our Outlet Event: "I am Viktoria and since February 2017 I am the project manager at F&P Stock Solution for the event series "Fashion Flash" (Designer Outlet). I was born in Russia and came to Germany with my parents when I was a teen. Before I started at F&P Stock Solution and Fashion Flash, I worked as a project manager in Berlin." What does a Project Manager for Fashion Flash at F&P Stock Solution do? "I take care of the entire planning and implementation of the outlet events at Fashion Flash. For this I search for suitable and interesting locations, which fits to the unique brand outlet event of F&P. Once the right location has been found, room planning continues, because Fashion Flash isn’t just a "closeout market", but lives on the atmosphere and the huge selection of brands, models and styles. This makes the Fashion Flash from F&P Stock Solution a special brand outlet. In order to draw as many potential customers as possible to the outlet event, we need as many marketing channels as possible. This means that I contact the local media, such as daily newspapers, radio stations and/or special websites for events throughout Germany (websites for brand outlet, fashion outlet, designer outlet, trade fairs, etc.) or fashion blogs for introducing our fashion flash personally. In most cases, the people are thrilled by the concept of fashion flash. Of course, official permits, planning of personnel deployment and the entire logistics are also part of the implementation of fashion flash (Designer Outlets). The team of F&P Stock Solution, which made out the event on the day of the event, is local staff and takes care of a thousand TODo’s, such as the constant filling of cheap name brand shoes, textiles and accessories; the pouring of the champagne and the well-being of the customers. On the day of the Fashion Flash itself, I coordinate the team and even introduce myself to the cashier or the reception. At the end of an exhausting, but usually also successful Fashion Flash weekend, everything has to be "rebuild", which means that I keep everything in mind, so that we not only leave the customers of our Outlet Event satisfied, but also the manager from the locations. Back at the headquarters of F&P Stock Solution in Falkensee, the remaining shoes and textiles have to be unloaded, checked and repackaged. Once again, I contact the press to encourage coverage of the Fashion Flash that has taken place. We want to stay in mind! The organization and implementation of such an outlet event, like our Fashion Flash, requires a lot of structured work, good planning and a good team behind it. There are always a lot of challenges to master. F&P Stock Solution runs more than 40 fashion flashes every year, and every outlet event is different." Working at F&P Stock Solution is ...: "I love the overall package that Fashion Flash brings with it: the paperwork, traveling around, the team spirit and the little adrenalin rush before a Fashion Flash starts - when the gates are opened and the ladies swarm into our halls. I like to come to the office and enjoy the casual, but also professional working atmosphere. Everyone at F&P Stock Solution helps everyone and has fun at work. Fashion Flash is not just a closeout market, but a special outlet event that makes women happy. The concept of F&P Stock Solution is unique and leading this project is a lot of fun. The short and uncomplicated communication channels at F&P allow us to master almost all challenges."   (written by Viktoria Eder, Project Manager) ...

What do we do the whole day? Have a look behind the scene! Today - Logistics (Head of Logistics) "It's 7:30, switch on the lights in the and have my first stroll around the warehouse."   As a warehouse manager I have the complete F&P warehouse in my mind. In the wake of an arrival of new goods, I plan and prioritze the order with the responsible employees and distribute tasks.   "In addition, I work closely with the merchandisers. After the new goods arrive in the warehouse, we plan together how the goods will be distributed into the individual business units."   The inventory of the complete product, which is available at F&P, is also part of my job as well as the support of the labeling team in planning and organization. In addition, I'm monitoring the goods output and coordinate the cdeliveries every week.   "It's never boring. In most cases, I don't know what to expect in the morning and what challenges await me! But I have a great team with me, with whom I can master everything. That's exactly what I like about my job!" (Written by Mauro Galluccio, Head of Logistics) ...

What do we do the whole day? Have a look behind the scene! Today - Head of Event (Fashion Flash)   Morning respectively forenoon: Planning the day, coordination in the team & processing time-critical ToDo's:   Every day is different and there are always new challenges that have to be tackled together with the team - accordingly every week or in a shorter version every day begins with a get-together of the Fashion Flash Team in which each employee updates the areas / topics supervised by him / her are checked, the planning status of the upcoming event is checked, upcoming ToDo's are recorded, prioritized and distributed and all further topics are discussed together.   The rest of the morning I usually block myself to process the most important mails and ToDo's. I am happy to answer questions from the team. As a final act before lunch, around noon, I visit our colleagues from the labeling and quality team to have a real-time look at the latest collections and merchandise and speak directly with people and get information for future decision-making because they have - together with our buyers - the best view of goods and quality.   Lunch or afternoon: Lunch & consultation with stakeholders and interface functions:   Lunch is eaten together in the team - in good weather on the sunny terrace of the E-Com building. Then it's time for a collective exercise therapy and fresh cell feed: the legendary F & P after-lunch table tennis rounds!   In the afternoon, the weekly meetings will be held for discussions with the departments, project managers and external service providers involved in running the event business. One of these rolling meetings is, for example, the weekly Jour Fixe with the purchasing team, where the current inventory is checked, the purchasing planning for the upcoming events is discussed and current trends and seasonal highlights are discussed.   Evening: recap of the day, planning for tomorrow and after-work activities   Before I leave work, I recapitulate the day, preparing for the upcoming meetings or business trips of the next day and memorably note the fresh ideas and solutions that have been shot in the head over the day on Post-It's.   "At the end of the working day, friends, cooks or, to be honest, far too rarely, a round of sports. Such a day as a head of event is quite diverse and tightly timed - one has to deal with an incredible number of people, makes many decisions and deals with various topics and stakeholders. But it‘s guaranteed never boring!"   (written by Georgious (Jorgo) Kotsougianis, Head of Event) ...
