Our passion for people is what drives and enables us to create a thriving, collaborative workplace for our colleagues, in our stores, head office and warehouse. 

We’re looking for you; talented people with passion and spark to help achieve our vision of being the first choice for fragrance purchases on the high street and online.

People are at the heart of everything we do. This is not a job, it’s a career.


You will be working closely with the Buying team to accurately forecast trends, plan stock levels and monitor performance for our brands, maximising stock availability to increase sales whilst keeping stock levels within company parameters.

  • Plan promotions and markdowns alongside the Buying team;
  • Accurately forecast weekly sales and stock using the planning system;
  • Produce line sales and stock forecasts for key lines to support business availability targets;
  • Take an active role in planning budgets and presenting sales forecasts for new launches;
  • Analyse every aspect of the best and worst sellers, ensuring sales opportunities for both are maximised (including slow moving stock);
  • Review sales from previous seasons to report on current seasons;
  • Provide monthly sales reports to suppliers;
  • And work collaboratively across all internal and external departments to improve stock availability and sales.

To be the successful candidate for this role, you will have recent experience working within the retail industry as a Merchandiser. You will have a passion for retail and demonstrable experience of managing stock and sales budgets within a similar role. You will have previously worked with brands and be able to show strong communication and organisation skills. 

You will also be available to start a new role immediately for 6 months.
