Additional Information

FnacDarty has announced the recruitment of 500 technicians for its after-sales services (SAV) to ensure the repair of household appliances. This is an important activity alongside its sales activity, since the technicians will carry out nearly 2.5 million interventions in 2019. The activity is now accelerating with the development of the transition to a low carbon economy and the search for a better durability of the appliances. Young people with a CAP (professional certificate) in electrotechnics or electromechanics or even a technical baccalaureate are welcome.

The FnacDarty group has an internal training centre (Academie Fnac Darty in Paris) and also works with two training centres throughout France. FnacDarty recruits young people, but also people undergoing retraining, such as people over 50 years old. These are open-ended jobs for the hundred or so sites that provide home interventions for the whole of France.
