I am looking to recruit an experienced Import Merchandiser to join a well-established giftware / party products manufacturer.
Most of the product range is imported from the Far East – they supply a wide range of retail customers from the independent to the national.
Fundamentally you are responsible for ensuring orders are placed and the critical path from that point to the point of delivery in to the UK is managed effectively. Specifically this will encompass responsibility for:
• Driving through cost reduction programmes both via liaison with the supplier base and coordination with the UK product development team.
• Ensuring shipping and delivery accuracy, foreseeing and effectively managing any problems that arise.
• Ensuring that the sampling process is adhered to to minimise errors and delays
• Liaise with the supply chain team to ensure efficiencies in cost and process are maximised and the relevant standards and processes are followed.
The ideal candidate will have experience in a Merchandising / Buying / Supply Chain / Stock Management type function within the consumer goods industry. You will have supplied the retail sector – preferably the High Street.
Another key requirement is to possess first class analytical skills. They form the backbone of the role (and the business) and will help in key decision making areas such as understanding trading patterns, product performance and order planning.
If you meet these criteria and are looking for an opportunity to work autonomously whilst being an integral part of a successful business then I would encourage you to apply.
Please follow the instructions to send your CV on line to me – confidentiality is assured.
This role may be suitable for you if you have a background in any of the following: Merchandiser, Buyer, Buying Administrator, Merchandise Administrator, Import Merchandiser, Junior Import Merchandiser, Demand Planner, Forecaster or Sales Administrator.
This job could be suitable for commuters from: Huddersfield, Wakefield, Halifax, Bradford, Leeds, Wetherby, York, Rochdale, Oldham, Dewsbury, Keighley, Harrogate, Burnley
