Training & Profiles
Getting fantastic products into our stores takes a lot of hard work, and
our Buyers are involved in the whole process - from initial design
through to overseas sourcing and negotiations. Part of our work is about
translating the latest designer products into high street trends, so as
well as being in touch with what's happening on the catwalk, you need to
be able to make disciplined, commercial decisions.
In Merchandising, we work alongside Buyers to make sure all our new
ranges prove a hit with customers. It's down to us to analyse previous
seasons and to report on the current season's lines. We also look at
space planning and generally act as a Buyer's conscience to make sure
the decisions we make together will deliver both volume and profit.
Replenishment is all about making sure every store has the right stock
levels at the right time. Working closely with Merchandising, it's down
to us to make accurate sales forecasts and to identify any opportunities
to increase our sell-through rates. Our exact responsibilities vary from
pre-season planning through to in-season stock management and
Working across both fashion and homewares, our Design teams translate
the requirements from Buying and Merchandising into smart design
solutions. We have to think about price and quality, but we also
consider coordination with other ranges throughout the store. And we
work closely with Marketing to choose products for photo-shoots and
In Finance, we look at what's going on across the business and assess
how that affects the bottom line. We like developing our people and
promoting from within, so we tend to recruit into junior levels. We also
encourage people to experience different roles within the department to
help them see the bigger picture.
