Visual Merchandiser (Homeware)
A retailer in the West Midlands seeking a Visual Merchandiser to work in store and head office
Your new company
A retailer with stores across the West Midlands are looking for a Visual Merchandiser / Stylist to focus on their Homeware department to create inspirational room sets and create show stopping window displays. You will have full creative freedom as there are no set styling guides to follow - your creative ideas will be yours to explore. The company is also offering a rare opportunity for you to work with the Buying and Marketing teams in head office - attending UK trade shows and working on photo-shoots.
Your new role
Your main responsibility will be to create and maintain the visual standards of the homeware departments in each store in your area. You will create inspirational room sets, show stopping window displays and create an enjoyable shopping experience in store. You will spend most of your time in store, but you will also have the opportunity to spend time in head office and work with the Buying and Marketing teams. You will accompany the Buyers to UK trade shows and be on hand to advise them on seasonal trends and what would look great in store. You will also be on hand at key points in the year to work alongside marketing and style room sets for photo-shoots. You will basically be the key point of contact for all things trend related for homeware. This is an opportunity to really develop your skills in other areas.
What you'll need to succeed
You will need to have demonstrable experience in an in-store Visual Merchandiser role and have experience working with homeware product. An obsession with homeware trends would be fantastic - a qualification in interior design would be preferred but is not essential. You must have a full clean driving licence.
What you'll get in return
You will have full creative freedom, you will not be working to pre-defined guidelines so will have the opportunity to express yourself creatively. You will have the rare opportunity to work closely with a Buying team. You will have the opportunity to travel across the west midlands and work in other stores, spend time in head office and visit UK trade shows.
