WHAT WE NEED IN A NUTSHELL

We are looking for an experienced Merchandiser with strong site optimisation knowledge to help shape the future of the notonthehighstreet.com website. In this newly created role, you’ll be working with our Merchandisers, Category Managers and Technical/Product Development teams, acting as the lynchpin that brings together all site improvement requests from a merchandising perspective and driving changes forward, helping our customers to live a life less ordinary along the way. 

WHAT THE ROLE ENTAILS

Sitting within the Commercial team, and reporting into the Cross Site Manager you will be responsible for optimising the navigation and the merchandised areas of our site. You will work closely with the Product/Technical teams to build a schedule of ongoing optimisation and testing.

  • Insightful competitor analysis
  • Collaborative working with Product & Tech teams
  • Setting KPIs for recommended changes and tracking performance against them

THE TYPE OF PERSON WE ARE LOOKING FOR

You have a blended approach to decision making – you value the power of data but are also comfortable testing ideas based on your instincts. Understanding customer interaction with a website drives you and you relish using that knowledge to improve key metrics for the business. You have an ability to step back and look at the bigger picture to predict future requirements but are also comfortable looking at detail and the impact small changes can have on performance. You are able to assess the pros and cons of proposed changes quickly and efficiently, and your great communication and relationship skills allow you to easily and constructively feedback priorities to stakeholders in the business.

THE KEY SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE WE NEED

  • A strong track record in merchandising and ecommerce site optimisation
  • Previous experience testing, learning and improving site performance
  • A love and natural aptitude for numbers and google analytics
  • Highly organised and unflappable in a fast paced environment
  • A naturally collaborative style and able to build relationships effectively across the business
