MERCHANDISER

YEOVIL, SOMERSET

UP TO £35,000 + 33 DAYS’ HOLIDAY + PENSION (RELOCATION ALLOWANCE ON A CASE BY CASE BASIS)

We’re Screwfix. Perhaps you know us. Perhaps you don’t. Either way, we’d like to let you in on a secret. We’re growing. By putting our customers first, we’re providing quality products, at competitive prices and a convenient shopping experience. It’s a winning formula. With 570 stores around the UK, we’re also expanding into Europe. As a Supply Chain Merchandiser, you’ll make sure we’re never out-of-stock – whether that’s in the right trade counter or online.

LET’S HAMMER OUT THE DETAIL

The demand for our products goes up and down for all sorts of reasons. So, getting the right products, in the right quantities, at the right time, to the right place is a fine balancing act. Get it right and not only does it keep our customers happy, it also optimises sales and profitability – which is good for all of us. Working with our Buyers, you’ll plan product ranges and prepare sales and stock plans whilst keeping close tabs on the sales budget, catalogue launches and promotions. It’s all about effective stock, sales and merchandising planning. But it’s also about working out what to do with any residual stock and looking to clear it. Thanks to your skills, you’ll make it look easy.

YOUR SKILLS TOOLBOX

Let’s start with your impressive merchandising career. You’ll definitely come from a major retailer and ideally, you’ll have online experience, whilst any supply chain, inventory experience is a bonus. As we’ll be looking to you to contribute to maximising our margins and sales, financial modelling, data analysis, sales forecasting, stock ordering and problem-solving are also skills we’re looking for. On top of that, you’ll need to be a great communicator, both verbal and written, and be able to influence internal and external stakeholders. Finally, it’s about the type of person you are. Totally at ease working on multiple tasks and to tight deadlines, you’re proactive at every turn. It’s exactly why you’ll fit right in.

SCREWFIX – THE NUTS AND BOLTS

We haven’t got where we are today without taking risks. We own what we do. We work hard, but we make sure we balance that with fun along the way. With 570 stores across the country, we’re constantly opening new ones and there’s no sign of us slowing down. Join us, and you’ll be part of a dynamic organisation that’s investing in its people and going places.

REWARDS – WE’VE NAILED IT

We mentioned you’ll need to work hard…. That’s why we make every effort to thank you for your efforts. A competitive salary, xx days’ holiday, an award-winning company pension scheme, life cover, childcare vouchers, 20% discount with Screwfix and B&Q, discounted healthcare and company share save schemes are all on offer. We’ll also help you be the best you can be, with excellent training and ongoing development at your disposal too.

As we want to attract the best, we’re willing to move mountains… or at least help you move. Our competitive relocation package is designed to make things easier for you. Equally, we’re keen to help our people achieve a healthy work / life balance, so for certain roles we’re open to discussing flexible working (naturally this works better for some roles than others, but if we can help, we will).

Our policy is to employ the best qualified people and provide equal opportunity for the advancement of employees including promotion and training and not to discriminate against any person because of gender, race, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, religion, belief or disability.
