The Support functions form the backbone of Groupe SEB: they provide to those who create, manufacture and sell Group products, the resources and tools to fulfill their role under optimum conditions. Legal experts, information systems experts, controllers, human resources teams, to name but a few, keep the cogs of Group operations well oiled so that the implemented strategy results in profitable growth.
There are many professions within the Group’s Finance and Contolling teams and they are found at every level of the organization, in the head office and in the different entities or subsidiaries. From controlling to financial management, from reporting to audits, there are real opportunities for development.
Controlling is a leading profession in this sector. Whether in the commercial or industrial field, the aim is the same: to improve performance by giving operational staff the tools and information required for the optimal management of their remit and highlight the points to be monitored to avoid deviation. This unique role requires sound knowledge of the activity in the entity in question and involves a healthy dose of advice. Very often, controllers are required to take part in decision-making.

In all Group entities, legal experts ensure that legislation is taken into account in the development and implementation of projects by lending the necessary legal expertise to the various stakeholders involved. They work in every field of commercial law: contract management, brand management, promotional operations, etc.
To avoid disputes and be in a position to settle them where necessary, they keep their finger permanently on the pulse of legal developments and regularly solicit external advice.
The mission of Industrial Property teams is to protect Groupe SEB’s innovations – they have a portfolio of 1,000 active patents – and to defend them in the event of infringement. Patent engineers assist R&D and Marketing teams in order to file patents. To protect them, they conduct systematic monitoring in sensitive areas, carry out investigations in trade shows and, if necessary, enforce seizures or instigate legal action. Read more Close
