We are on the look-out for a passionate team player who loves what they do, both in and out of the office. We don't insist that you are a cyclist to work here, but there's a good chance you'll be converted while you're with us!

About the Role:

As a key and leading role within the Merchandising team you need to ensure the right stock is in the right place at the right time. Working alongside the Buying team, you will analyse previous sales trends to successfully forecast what we need to buy, how much of it and when it needs to hit stores to maximise profit and minimise markdown

* Commercially aware with strong trading focus to maximise sales and profit whilst minimising markdown and cost of reduction.

* Highly numerate and analytical, proficient in excel and great attention to detail.

About Us:

We've come a long way from the local shop in Kennington Road, London in 1921. Back then we made our own bikes, and even won awards for the quality of our service. It was (and still is) all about knowledge, passion and value. These three things are still part of our DNA - we're still a local bike shop, but now with nationwide stores and a huge online store that operates on a global scale.

We love to reward our colleagues for the passion and enthusiasm they put into what they do.
