Allocator - Food
We have an exciting opportunity for a driven individual to join our Food Merchandising team. If you have a love for numbers and analytical skills and a passion for food this may be the right role for you.
Working in our Food Merchandising team, you'll analyse reports and allocate stock to stores for our departments, ensuring that the correct stock is in the right place at the right time to maximise sales and improve the flow of stock through the business. It will be down to you to maintain our model stock levels, action stock transfers between stores, update markdowns on our pricing system and provide sales & stock information to suppliers. You'll also assist the buying & merchandising team with weekly, seasonal and ad-hoc analysis, working very closely with the retail operations teams.
The Ideal Candidate
You will be highly numerate and analytical, with a keen eye for detail and a well-organised approach. To anticipate the needs of our stores, you will need to be proactive, with plenty of initiative and enthusiasm. And if you're a good problem solver with strong IT skills such as Excel, you could soon be working in one of the most inspiring environments in retail.
