Merchandising Forecast Analyst

Location: Banbury

Salary: £25,000 - £29,000

Industry: Miscellaneous

Job posted: 13/05/2020

Type: Full-time

You know that stock in the wrong place results in lost sales.

That’s why your role is so important.

It’s no coincidence when products are in the right place at the right time. Your commercial mindset makes sure of it.

Alongside the 2 others within the merchandising team, you’ll plan and forecast sales and stock levels appropriately.

Yes, this is a very numbers focused role, but you also understand that it takes a unique skillset to perform well in this role – you have to use your initiative to think ahead too.

Working in retail before, you’ll already know the impact that Mother’s Day, or Black Friday can have on stock. Working in the fashion, lifestyle and jewellery sector, you’ll know which events are going to do well.

You’ll get to a make a real difference in this role. You’ll participate in weekly trade meetings with other Managers and Directors (which includes the two founders of the business) and make suggestions to improve sales, such as markdowns, and also new ways of doing things.

Everyone wants a role where they feel they’re actually contributing, and being listened to.

You’ll have to be very collaborative, which is the culture throughout the entire business here. This is even more crucial in this role, as you’ll be working with Design, Marketing, E-Commerce and the Purchasing team.

Your analysis will be done through Excel, so you’ll need to be pretty good at it. If you’re used to automated processes, unfortunately you won’t find that here.

You get a salary of £25,000 – £29,000 which you may end up spending a chunk on the companies’ products thanks to their hefty staff discount. You’ll start with 25 days holiday, but with each year you’ll get an extra day up until 33.
