A bit about you
You know what’s important in ecommerce. You’ve seen what healthy, profitable ecommerce partner relationships look like and how they’re maintained. And you understand how the footwear retail industry works in UK and (or) EMEA markets. You know that it’s about working seasonally. You understand all the work that goes into meeting important on-sale dates. And you have an eye for detail when it comes to product images, identifying SLA risk factors and monitoring stock data levels. It’s about being on top of everything so that our retail plans can proceed unimpeded in all markets. Because you know that, when things go right, it’s better for the customer and the business.
As you’ll have learned in previous roles, each ecommerce role comes with its own ecommerce systems and tools (with Microsoft Office as standard) so it’s important you can learn the ropes quickly and are comfortable managing direct commerce sites. You’ll be entering a fast-paced environment working closely with multiple partners. Always ready to communicate effectively and immediately – looking to develop great relationships with internal and external collaborators. And you’re always looking beyond the horizon for new ecommerce frontiers to conquer. That sense of adventure, is what attracted you to ecommerce in the first place. This is your chance to do what you do best for one of the very best names in retail.
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.
We’ve already told you about the degree of flexibility you’ll enjoy as a valued addition to our business – but that’s just the start. As well as development opportunities, pension and a competitive salary, you’ll also enjoy a variety of other 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.
We love hearing from great people
