These guys are already a brand leader and have a multimillion £ T/O business. On line traffic and presence is significant.

We would point out that this role is not a marketing role, they already have a digital marketing manager, and therefore the digital side is less important.

We need someone who is very driven, plans well, drives the team, analysis P&L, reacts quickly, manage merchandising staff, needs to make sure the many site are on brand, fully functioning.

Success will be measure through your ability to drive sales.

They have circa 250 staff in the MK office and own several very recognisable sports / lifestyle?s brands ? the bulk of their business is done online (70%) and they have a vast distribution network (B2B) as well as a direct customer based (B2C).

Currently the company have around 20 different web sites and a vast social media presence.

Desirably we are looking for someone with experience in either Magento Enterprise or Demandware which is the direction we are moving into ? early work has already started but only part of the ecommerce estate is using this technology and we still have some way to go before all sites are committed- the new platforms will enable us to effectively showcase, market and sell our merchandise.

Ultimately, you will be responsible for E-Commerce Content, E-Commerce Merchandising, E-Commerce Data Analysis.
