SARAJEVO (Bosnia and Herzegovina), July 4 (SeeNews) – Swedish fashion retailer Hennes&Mauritz (H&M) is opening a store in Bosnia's Banja Luka and is currently looking to hire staff in the city, according to several job adverts published on Wednesday.

H&M is looking for a store manager, four department managers, four visual merchandisers, one cash office employee and one payroll officer, the company announced in adverts posted with Bosnia's biggest job search site, is H&M’s empowered support agency for managing the pre-selection recruitment process, it added.

The retailer announced last week it is going to open a store in Bosnia and Herzegovina next year.

"For 2019 Bosnia-Herzegovina is planned to become a new H&M store market," the company said in its first-half financial report without providing further details.

In June, Bosnian media reported that H&M has registered a company in the country under the name H&M Hennes & Mauritz B&H, with headquarters in Sarajevo. It was speculated at the time that H&M's first store in Bosnia will open in the country's capital.
