The retail landscape is forever changing! Some of the most successful retailers are those who can react quickly, work at pace and operate with a balanced focus on being both reactive and proactive. This can mean no two days are the same and timeframes to get things done can be tight. For some, this presents itself as an exciting opportunity and a real challenge and we are currently partnered with a well known high street retailer who can offer just that.
As a Merchandiser for our retail partner, you will be joining a small and growing team, playing an absolutely pivotal role in helping to lead and motivate the team. You will thrive from working in a results driven, friendly environment where your experience and knowledge within retail Merchandising will be used to introduce processes and procedures.

You will demonstrate an ambitious and pragmatic approach in getting things done and you will enjoy managing people.
