Job Title: Senior Demand Planning and Merchandise Manager
Location: South West England
Attractive Salary

Overview

We are looking for a commercially-astute retail/FMCG background individual with experience in demand planning, forecasting and merchandising to join a retail business that is truly on the growth trajectory.

This is a brand that has a stand-out product portfolio for the stylish customer looking for beautifully hand-crafted pieces, from journals through to high end decorative furniture and lighting. With an already strong wholesale and online proposition, this is a hugely exciting time as the brand looks to expand its multichannel offering to include increased retail stores.

This is a centrally-positioned role that will report into the heartbeat of the business (4 Directors including the founders) so it requires someone who has ``belief in self`` that replicates the ``belief in the brand``. The role will also work closely with Buying, Marketing, Finance and Supply Chain so the culture piece is as important as the skill set and the experience that the right candidate brings to the role.

The raison d`etre is to ensure right stock, right place, right time and to increase revenue and profitability of the brand through effective analysis, demand planning and stock management for B2B and B2c online and offline.

Range Building, Demand Planning, financial and purchasing planning and inventory management are pre-requisites in terms of experience.

Strong leadership credentials with demonstrable change management experience on process and systems are hugely important, this is a role where you will present your plan to the business on a monthly business so you need to be decisive in your approach and come to the business with excellent numerical and analytical skills in order to monitor and manage sales performance, forecasting and order planning.

In case you needed any more incentive then the icing on the cake is the opportunity to live and work in a beautiful part of the world in the South West of England.  You may already be based in the South West or you may be ready to re-locate for the right role. It is a challenging role where you will need to question and challenge in order to deliver. Ultimately you will be the person who ensures right stock, right place, right time.

If this all sounds like you and the location works for you for all the right reasons then please forward your CV in the first instance.
