Job Description

  • Leading Sports Brand Online.
  • Funded Training & Development courses.
  • Fast-paced eCommerce team. 
This is great opportunity to join a highly recognised sports specialist brand who takes pride in offering fantastic career progression and development. They have a really well resourced team in terms of copywriting, product uploads and design that fall outside of your day to day responsibilities, making this a more analytical and strategic role.

What you’ll be doing

Reporting into the Merchandising Manager as part of a team of 5, your role will cover a mix of day to day site effectiveness, and wider projects around driving the performance of the site. It’s great to have these strategic elements to a role that can often be overlooked with the daily copywriting/uploads of product information (which, as mentioned above, falls into another division).

You’ll use analytical tools to summarise daily/weekly reports on how stock is performing, and discuss recommendations with senior stakeholders. Working closely with buying and merchandising, you can use this insight to ensure stock remains available, and anticipate changes with promotions.

Being in regular contact with the content team will help to ensure all categories remain up to date, and new products are showcased on the site in a quick and effective manner. Being immersed in the daily functioning of the site will allow you to draw your own insights and add real value on what changes should be made to improve the customer journey, and drive overall business growth.

What experience you’ll need

Good understanding of online merchandising tools, ideally Fredhopper.
Excellent MS Excel knowledge.
Experience using Google Analytics or similar.
Ideally you will have online merchandising experience or retail analysis within eCommerce.
Awareness of online acquisition channels.
Outdoor or sports interest/passion will be a big advantage.

What you’ll get in return for your talents

This company provides excellent internal training and a great culture, alongside a salary of up to £28k. Please enquire for information on further benefits
