about the role

Raymond Cloosterman, CEO:

“Rituals is about helping you slow down the pace of your busy life, about creating meaningful moments and to remind you to experience these moments with joy. Our ambition is to become the number one global luxury brand in cosmetics. And for that we need passionate, energetic, ambitious and driven people to help us achieve our goals. This might feel like a paradox, but within our company meaningfulness and performance complement each other like yin and yang. People are the ultimate ambassadors of our brand.

In our company and in particular in our team the ambiance is dynamic. The 30 to 40% growth of Rituals attracts young people with and entrepreneurial mindset. E-commerce will keep growing even faster. Many things are not found out yet, you will have to take a lot of responsibility and think like a startup. The speedy growth will sometimes give pressure and more than in a corporate company you will have to solve problems and pick up smaller tasks. What I like about our company is that it stays very personal, I feel a close connection with my colleagues.

The employees are seen as the ultimate ambassadors of the brand. However, we believe that the most suitable people are those who share our values and with whom the brand’s philosophy resonates. After all, understanding the values helps to translate them into action and practical behaviour. The ultimate Rituals employee radiates enthusiasm and energy. He or she reaches for the impossible, truly cares, isn’t fazed by challenges, and enjoys working with others. These behaviours have shaped us into the successful company we are today.”
