2nd Take Jobs and Careers


Bettina Berlep is the owner and founder of 2nd Take. 2nd Take is the leading up-market and exclusive, second-hand Fashion Franchise Group, with stores in Cape Town and Pretoria and a convenient online shop. Her vision sees 2nd Take expanding the brand nationwide, through its affordable and great value Franchise concept – a 2nd Take store in every town. 2nd Take stocks branded international designer labels for men, women and kids and also has a Kids Division, selling second-hand baby equipment, toys and books.

Bettina came to South Africa in 1996 and fell in love with Cape Town, especially its cosmopolitan people and beautiful landscapes. Hailing from Germany, she has travelled extensively and lived in France and England prior to making the Mother City her home. Bettina’s professional background is varied. Her career began in the Travel Industry where she gained experience in all fields from hospitality to tour operations, travel agencies, cruiseliners and airlines. From there she moved into different fields when she started a large international outsourcing business, a local recruitment agency and a transcription and translation service.

Her roles for the last 17 years involved the managing and expanding of existing businesses and the building of new ones. “I love the possibilities that come with expanding or building a business from scratch. Once one looks at a business with growth in mind, opportunities present themselves; one just has to grasp them. It’s very exciting!” says Bettina.
Loving classy clothes and being eco-conscious, she did not hesitate to make the jump to fashion retail. Her decision was spurred on, after talking to friends about the need for quality 2nd hand shops in South Africa. In Europe, exclusive second-hand shops are part and parcel of the fashion retail landscape.
She says, “It is all about identifying a niche market and delivering consistently, quality goods or services. We are still young as a company, but have been received wonderfully and created lots of excitement, since about 60% of our stock can’t be purchased in South Africa. With the opening of our first 2 Franchise stores in South Africa, I feel a major step in 2nd Take’s history has been taken. There is no doubt in my mind that interesting times lie ahead, for 2nd Take and our customers.”
