Looking for your next step up the Buying and Merchandising ladder?

Do you have a passion for menswear?

Reporting to the Buying and Merchandising Manager, we are looking for an Assistant Merchandiser to join fast growing startup. This newly created role will give you great exposure to all areas of the business offering the opportunity to make a significant contribution to the successful running of a fast growing company.

You will be involved in all aspects of Buying and Merchandising from range strategy and planning through visually merchandising our online store.

We are looking for someone as comfortable in the creative world as they are in the technical. If you are equally happy stalking menswear bloggers as buried deep in an excel spreadsheet this could be the role for you.

This is an unusual opportunity to be part of an exciting growth story. We're in that sweet spot - gaining huge traction, but still small enough that you can make a difference. We aren't bogged down by antiquated systems or bureaucratic organizational structure. We're lean and we're nimble and we're growing fast. So don't go join a big brand, come build one.

Specific responsibilities include the following:

Deputise for Buying and Merchandising Manager.
Weekly sales and stock reporting.
Online Merchandising.
Updating the OTB.
Provide seasonal size breaks to production team.
Partner with Production to place PO’s.
Ad hoc B&M admin.
Regular comp shops.

REQUIREMENTS

A Thinker: creative, adaptable and considered.
A Doer: full of initiative with epic levels of hustle.
An Artist: Excited by great design and trends.
A Scientist: comfortable managing numbers to drive out insights
Authentically passionate about building a menswear brand
An instinctive understanding of our customer.
Excel Rockstar

BENEFITS

SPOKE is a menswear brand built for the Internet.

Men are moving their clothes shopping online. The offline shopping experience is miserable and loathed. We’re building something better.

But we’re more than slick a website. The Internet is more than just a channel. It’s an opportunity to make a better product - and we deliver that product:

For now we make trousers. Great trousers. But we have bigger dreams.

Join us to be part of the adventure.

We'll also give you the IT equipment you need to get the job done, enough caffeinated drinks to keep you going for days, and as many team high-fives as you'd like. And we promise to surround you with bright all-stars who want to be at work as much as you do.

Quarterly social events (which have included the Crystal Maze and Trampoline Dodgeball to date), regular Friday drinks (in the summer - no one wants to drink in January), and we make a fuss of everyone on their birthday. What’s not to like?
