Where would we be without our Merchandisers? Their commercial vision and tight reins on budgetary control are crucial in helping their buying team achieve its profit targets.
Operating in partnership with our extensive supply base, they keep us one step ahead of the competition. Negotiating the best prices, production planning, monitoring management reports and keeping a close eye on margins all come with the territory here. Spotting opportunities and trends in the figures also make them a valuable resource for planning promotions, price negotiations and markdowns.
Along with the buyer, our merchandisers ensure supplier KPIs are monitored and achieved. Production planning, either by conference calling or video conference calling, or more frequently in person and on site, means you could end up anywhere in the world.
Who we look for
Focused team players who thrive on the pace and challenge of retail will do well here. A head for figures, attention to detail and insightful analytical thinking are all essential attributes too.
