Robert Dyas - Graduate Merchandising Assistant

Salary: £20,000 plus benefits
Location: South East, Leatherhead, Oxshott

Sectors: Distribution & Logistics, Retail, Buying & Merchandising

Ultimately, you’re not only looking to start your career. You’re looking for an unforgettable adventure. You want to be part of something constantly evolving, challenging and exciting. This opportunity for graduates to join us is where it all begins. 


At Robert Dyas, we are modern retailers who are curious and interested in new things. We scour the world for the latest products and smart solutions that make homemaking easier.


We are not interested in the flimsy or throwaway. For us, new products must be enduring as well as innovative. Modern homes can be pretty demanding. There are always a million and one things that need adding, doing or fixing. We run our business as shopkeepers, not just shops, offering the new, the rare and the necessary with the helpful advice and guidance our customers need.


Robert Dyas was bought in July 2012 by Theo Paphitis, one of the UK’s most high profile and successful investors and shop keepers. Since then, the company has shown improved year-on-year results and driven a programme of significant investments. This means you would be joining an incredibly fast-paced business that’s every bit as exciting for us as it is for our customers. 


Our Merchandising teams have the challenge of making sure we have the right stock, in the right place, at the right time, meaning this role can make a real impact on our results.


We have 95 stores in the UK and a rapidly growing online presence, and as a Merchandising Assistant you would be helping to drive the growth of the business, working with teams across the business and beyond including merchandisers, buyers and suppliers to ensure the success of your category.


You will soon be putting your newfound knowledge and skills into practice as you support stock ordering and deliveries of products from our suppliers to our warehouse, and the successful introduction and trading of products in our stores and online.


If you have great attention to detail, are pretty savvy on spreadsheets, a desire to work hard and succeed in the exciting and challenging world of retail then we would love to hear from you.


You don’t need to have a particular degree, or experience in retail, but a head for numbers, an eye for detail, and strong analytical skills are crucial. You’ll thrive in a constantly changing working environment where decisions happen quickly and everyone works together to make the incredible possible.
