In terms of background, they would ideally like to hire someone that has experience with high street multiples and someone who understands design. Training will be provided on the systems and their suppliers and the products. A fashion/design background would be preferable but not essential. A willingness to learn, strong MS office skills and attention to detail is key as well as great communication skills and the ability to work as part of a team. The role is newly created so is therefore a great opportunity for someone to really make the role their own and be able to get involved. The role is available immediately!
