A Merchandiser ensures that products appear in the right store or website, at the right time and in the right quantities. While the buyer selects the lines, the merchandiser decides how much money should be spent, how many lines should be bought, and in what quantities.
In smaller companies, the same person may be responsible for both buying and merchandising. In this company you will have aspects of both, a role where you can develop and really get stuck in.

We are excited to be working with our client based in Gloucester who is looking for a 'doer' someone who has the motivation and drive to get involved and really deliver. The role will be progressive and you will be expected to start by delivering on a number of tasks. From here you will be able to take on more responsibility and really reap the rewards of working for a small company that is on an upward trajectory.

What will you be doing to begin with?
*Raise purchase orders on new SAP Business One systems.
*Working with the logistics side to ensure factories have target vessels and dates to handover finished goods.
*Understand the timing of intake and showing that to the business so that you are able to plan sales operations, following this you will send out weekly trackers and forecasting reports.
*You will have a close relationship with the warehouse to ensure products are booked in correctly, stock is counted and any variances identified.
*You will also be responsible for approving invoices for the finance team and ensure supplier accounts are correct & up-to-date.

The ideal candidate may be someone with limited experience but a work ethic that can be admired. Or someone with a few years of solid merchandising/sourcing experience behind them that will be able to get up and go. If this sounds like you, please don't hesitate to get in touch!
