Merchandise Administration Assistant
£18,500 starting salary plus competitive benefits
Are you fashion aware and business focused?
Would you like to be involved in minimising risk and maximising profits on key lines for each season?
If so, then you’ll love working in our fun, fast paced head office as a Merchandise Administration Assistant. Working with the Buyers, the Merchandisers look at the history of department sales and predict trends for the coming season. This enables them to decide how much money to spend across different areas of the whole department in order to maximise sales.
A Merchandise Administration Assistant provides crucial support to the Merchandising team, taking an active role by analysing sales trends, monitoring deliveries and maintaining stock levels. As an MAA you will predict how many of each item will sell, in what colour and size. Having enough stock to satisfy demand, but not having too many left at the end of the season is a critical element of the role.
To be successful in this role you’ll need strong analytical and numerical skills, commercial knowledge and the ability to thrive in a fast moving environment, combined with great communication and organisational skills. A fashion, business or numerical related degree is preferred but not essential, and 5 GCSE’s or equivalent including Maths and English (Grades A-C).
In return we can offer you a competitive salary, 22 days paid holiday, 25% discount on Group merchandise, exclusive external seasonal discount offers, participation in the company bonus scheme and an excellent pension scheme. You’ll also benefit from the support to develop a long term career with us.
Join our exciting head office merchandising team and you’ll be the one making key product decisions!
