Contract Type
This is an excellent opportunity for a self starter that is energetic and able to use their own initiative. Though the role is the first UK placement, my client will be looking for a candidate with management experience that can later build a Merchandising team. The role requirement would be to work with the UK retailer and the Australian product team to co-ordinate a merchandising strategy for the UK stores.

Client Details

My client is an Australian Hard Goods Supplier that are recruiting their first UK role to work with a large UK retailer.


Given the nature of the business, they currently do not have a UK office but plan to have one in the next 3 months which is likely to be based in Milton Keynes or the surrounding areas. Therefore, the first 2/3 months the ideal candidate will be required to work from home.


My client is looking for someone that:

Understands the UK retailer network

Executor - gets in and does it

Detailed - from a reporting sense

Excellent Communicator

Ability to Interpret information

High personal presentation skills (meeting with Buyers etc)



Job Offer

My client is offering a very competitive salary with many benefits. Though given the business is based in Australia the ideal candidate may need to work flexibly to allow weekly video links (e.g 11am-8pm)
