At Selfridges, we want our products to fly off the shelves. Working as part of our Merchandising team, you’ll use your knowledge of stock management and replenishment to make sure that’s exactly what happens.
Providing support for everything from stock level reviews through to weekly, seasonal and adhoc reporting, you’ll know exactly what’s selling and how to maximise profitability. We’ll expect you to be able reforecast sales, stock and margin - identifying opportunities and risks - and to have a clear understanding of OTB. You will work alongside the Designer Womenswear team to identify opportunities for stock transfer and make recommendations on commitment, and will ensure that we always have the right stock, in the right place, at the right time.
The Ideal Candidate
You are likely to already be an Assistant Merchandiser looking for a new challenge, or have experience working as a Senior Allocator and looking for the next step. You should be a key team player with strong numerical and analytical skills. You’ll also have excellent Excel skills, experienced using WSSI and will be a fantastic problem solver who can work with data to quickly identify solutions. You’ll know the market inside out and will help to bring all the best Designer Womenswear products to Selfridges.
