Please note that this is a 12 month Maternity Cover role.
It's a big job, but an incredible exciting, varied and challenging one. You will support the Merchandiser in analysing and evaluating commercial data including sales and margin, identifying trends, ensuring the right shoes appear in the right places at the right times. Working closely with the Merchandising and Sales Teams you will have the opportunity to build a variety of relationships across the region and wider business.
We'll give you that all-important introduction to merchandising, plus a solid grounding in our business. From there, you'll have every chance to develop your skills and your career, helping you to work through the ranks from Assistant Merchandiser to Merchandiser to, one day, Senior Merchandiser.
So, what do you need to bring? You’ll need to be adaptable, approachable, not to mention quick to pick things up and understand how we work. With a keen eye for detail, it’s important that you have a head for figures so you are able to identify numeric trends and have advanced MS Excel skills. You’ll also demonstrate good analytical skills, a flair for commercial acumen and an unwavering customer focus. Previous assistant Merchandising experience would be desirable. You will be comfortable working independently and across lots of other functions in the business. 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.
Clarks, based in Somerset, England, has been at the forefront of innovative shoemaking since its foundation in 1825, when brothers James and Cyrus Clark made a slipper from sheepskin off-cuts. At the time it was ground-breaking; a combination of invention and craftsmanship that’s remained at the heart of what the brand does now.
In the Clarks archive of more than 22,000 pairs are shoes that have sparked revolutions and defined generations. From the original Clarks Desert Boot, first designed by Nathan Clark and launched in 1950 to the iconic Wallabee, each design has an instantly recognisable signature - a unique combination of craftsmanship and innovation that make it unmistakably Clarks.
Clarks is a global business operating retail, wholesale, franchise and online channels in over 100 markets worldwide supported by nearly 10,000 employees across the world.
As well as development opportunities, pension and a competitive salary, you’ll also enjoy a variety of benefits. And, as everyone loves new shoes, you’ll also get a very healthy discount on our products.
We love hearing from great people
