It’s a big job, but an incredible exciting, varied and challenging one. You’ll be responsible for merchandising in our Retailing division for UK & ROI.
Day to day you’ll be analysing and evaluating commercial data including sales and margin, identifying trends and proposing changes to future ranges to ensure the right shoes appear in the right places at the right times. Working closely with the Supply Chain, Product and Sales Teams within this remit, you will have the opportunity to build a variety of relationships across the region and wider business.
So, what do you need to bring? You will have previous Merchandiser or proven Assistant Merchandiser experience in either a retail, wholesale or online business, to enable you to understand how the merchandising function works within a head office environment.
With a keen eye for detail, you will have excellent analytical & forecasting skills, a flair for commercial acumen and an unwavering customer focus. You’re adaptable, approachable, not to mention quick to pick things up and understand how we work. 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. 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
