The Opportunity

We have an exciting opportunity to join the Stock Control team as a Trainee Assistant Merchandiser, based at our Head Offices in Altrincham. Joining our team is a hugely rewarding and fantastic opportunity for someone looking to start their career in Merchandising.

  • Helping to analyse sales and assist in the planning of new ranges
  • Raising orders and managing them into the business by liaising with our suppliers
  • Investigating data inaccuracies and problem solving where issues arise
  • Providing support to the Merchandiser where required
  • Working closely with the Buying, Technology, Marketing and Creative teams

  • Strong organisational skills
  • Ability to perform under pressure
  • Ability to work in a fast paced, multi-channel environment
  • Exceptional team working skills
  • Computer literate, particularly with experience of Excel
  • Strong numerical capability

Personal qualities

  • You're super-curious about pretty much everything, with an analytical mind and organised thinker
  • It should go without saying that you're happy with numbers, great with detail, and have a good, intuitive feel for the commercial world
  • You're excited about fashion, keen to learn and adapt in a fast-paced environment, with the resilience and drive to back it up when the going gets tough

Desired qualifications

  • You'll also need to have GCSEs in mathsand English (grade C/4 or better)

Future prospects

  • Depending on the performance of the candidate and company vacancies, there may be a role in our merchandising team

Things to consider

  • Our offices are based in Altrincham, Greater Manchester. The ideal candidate will have their own transport as we aren't on a direct bus or tram route. However, you can get the tram from across Manchester and from the city centre, but this would then require a 35 minute walk to Cotton Traders House
