It’s an exciting time to join Clarks. We are building diverse and motivated teams which will transform our business and who will focus on the brands success in the region. We need creative and inspiring leaders who will be critical in defining the future role of Merchandising at Clarks and pivotal to our success.
This role represents a unique opportunity to inform a fast-paced team in a highly dynamic industry with important insights that drive business decisions. This role will see you leading the analytics in the BU, through proactively working with stakeholders across all markets to understand market requirements to increase the business, develop a deep understanding of the BU projects and the business plan development and utilise complex analysis to provide actionable insight across all functions.
An important part of this role will be developing and maintaining relationships with key internal stakeholders to gain commercial insight and identify Cult emerging needs and business challenges.
You will be responsible for ensuring the business has an insightful and accurate reporting provision whilst driving continuous improvement and understanding of the key drivers and actions required using proven data driven solutions. This role not only offers autonomy but the opportunity to lead, develop and support all team colleagues.
You will manage the global planning directly without regional supports, working closely with the sales team, to optimize the stock intake, the stock rotation, and key KPI of the international Distribution Centres.
It's a big job, but an incredibly exciting, varied and challenging one.
So, what do you need to bring? Ideally you will have exposure to the Global retail market in your current or previous roles. You will have significant experience of delivering analytic analysis and insights to influence business decisions with a strong commercial understanding of both corporate and operational business issues and opportunities as well as qualitative and quantitative research methodologies.
Your strong analytical skills, project management and problem-solving skills coupled with a dynamic and passionate work ethic will see you excel in this role.
An excellent knowledge of strategies, planning, budgeting and strong international capabilities are essential.
Working for a global business you’ll want to build relationships across various markets and levels of stakeholder. Like everyone here at Clarks, you’re dedicated and driven, committed to be the best you can be.
Life with us
Over 46 million pairs of Clarks shoes are sold globally. That makes us a £1.5 billion business and a truly worldwide brand. We now have some 12,000 employees across 75 different countries – everywhere from Europe to the Americas. Despite being the world’s leading global casual footwear brand, we’re still majority owned by the Clark family and based in Street, Somerset – where the Clarks business began. Street is the nerve centre of our business, driving growth and the whole Clarks success story.
As well as development opportunities, pension and a competitive salary, you’ll also enjoy a variety of benefits. These range from 25 days’ holiday (plus bank holidays) to discounted healthcare. And, as everyone loves new shoes, you’ll also get a very healthy discount on our products.
