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, Posao.ba.

Posao.ba 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.

Elsewhere in Southeast Europe, H&M runs stores in Bosnia's neighbours Croatia and Serbia, as well as in Slovenia, Romania and Bulgaria.
