Your key objectives will be to drive footfall into depots, to ensure all depots are easy to shop around, to ensure all depots have the correct marketing collateral up and neatly displayed each period and to manage any marketing-related equipment required within depots.

This dynamic role will require a key mixture of creative and strategic skills, good organisation and an ability to manage multiple work streams at once, as well as understanding how the customer shops is essential.

Key responsibilities of this role will, amongst others, be to:
