Australian Hard Goods Supplier
Supplier to a large UK Retailer
About Our Client
My client is an Australian Hard Goods Supplier that are recruiting their first UK role to work with a large UK retailer.
This is an excellent opportunity for a self starter that is energetic and able to use their own initiative. Though the role is the first UK placement, my client will be looking for a candidate with management experience that can later build a Merchandising team. The role requirement would be to work with the UK retailer and the Australian product team to co-ordinate a merchandising strategy for the UK stores.
Given the nature of the business, they currently do not have a UK office but plan to have one in the next 3 months which is likely to be based in Milton Keynes or the surrounding areas. Therefore, the first 2/3 months the ideal candidate will be required to work from home.
The Successful Applicant
My client is looking for someone that:
Understands the UK retailer network
Executor - gets in and does it
Detailed - from a reporting sense
Ability to Interpret information
High personal presentation skills (meeting with Buyers etc)
What's on Offer
My client is offering a very competitive salary with many benefits. Though given the business is based in Australia the ideal candidate may need to work flexibly to allow weekly video links (e.g 11am-8pm)
