I am delighted to be partnering with a key client of Switch Consulting in supporting them in their recruitment for a Merchandiser within a growing team.
The business is going through a period of positive transition so the incoming candidate must be happy to work in an involving environment where positive change is on the agenda.
The role has all the requirements of a traditional Merchandiser role. You will be updating and re-forecasting WSSI. You will be working in line with the Buying/Category team in terms of best sellers and overstock sell through. You will be liaising with the allocators to ensure that there are no in-store stock issues. OTB falls under your remit so you will have worked in an environment where Merchandising has an influence on the OTB.
The ideal candidate will be operating within either a Merchandiser or Senior Merchandiser role. Retail is key although candidates from a Pure-play background will be considered. You will be a strong influencer with the ability to peer manage in addition to upward manage. As with most Merchandiser roles, product experience is key although somebody with either a Home or Furniture background would have an advantage.
