KNOW THE ROLE
We want to make sure what we offer online is every bit as good as what we offer in store. So that means stocking the latest trends, the best brands and the hottest products. Join us as Assistant Digital Trading Manager for Women’s Fashion and you’ll be responsible for the trading of the categories online. This will mean working directly with the Buying teams to develop a range plans, drive products to the site and achieve sales targets. Using website analytics, you’ll feedback sales figures, conversions, new lines, order values and availability to senior online managers and directly with the brands. But above all, you’ll make sure Women’s Fashion maintains the Selfridges standard at all times.
KNOW WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR
For this role, advanced Excel skills are essential – as is experience using web analytics tools like Core metrics or Google Analytics. You’ll have worked in an online role before, preferably within merchandising, and be comfortable compiling reports and working to sales plans. Passionate about brands, you’ll be in touch with the latest trends – spotting the next big thing is something that’s always come naturally to you. Organised and professional, you’ll do more than just meet the sales targets for your area – you’ll exceed them. If you can add top notch communication skills to all that, then you could be just the person we need to take our Fashion departments offering to the next level.
Selfridges is a shop run on imagination: a place where the world’s most covetable brands combine with the most extraordinary spectacles, events and ideas for an experience like no other. The story began when Harry Gordon Selfridge first arrived in London from Chicago in 1906 with his heart set on opening his dream store. With his revolutionary understanding of publicity and the theatre of retail, Selfridges Oxford Street opened its doors for the first time in 1909. The founder’s spirit of innovation and creativity lives on through its owners today. Since 2003, W. Galen Weston and his family have owned and operated the business, which now includes two stores in Manchester, one in Birmingham, plus selfridges.com and the Selfridges App which both deliver to over 130 countries. In 2016 Selfridges was the first ever store to be awarded the title of ‘World’s Best Sustainability Campaign by a Department Store’ at the IGDS Global Department Store Summit, in-line with its focus on buying better and inspiring change. For an unprecedented three consecutive occasions in a row (2010, 2012 & 2014) Selfridges also won the coveted ‘Best Department Store in the World’ award, underlining its place at the forefront of retail.
