My client is one of the fastest growing gardening companies in the UK with an award-winning website and catalogue, and a passion for product and service. An exciting new role has arisen for an experienced Merchandiser with strong horticultural knowledge to join the growing close-knit team on a full-time permanent basis.

The full-time Merchandiser will work within the established horticulture team, based at the office in Wiltshire. The role would be ideal for someone who has a strong horticultural background, is highly numerate with an analytical skillset, has demonstrable problem solving and creative thinking abilities as well as strong communication skills. The role may suit someone who is currently at an intermediate level and ready to step up, though the above skills must be demonstrated via previous work experience within the sector.

The successful applicant will be responsible for:

  • Liaising with the nursery and the office team to ensure a smooth dispatch season
  • Managing stock levels through accurate forecasting and promotional activity for the current season
  • Working with buyers to suggest, source and confirm additional stock to maintain availability
  • Ensuring data integrity in both the planning spreadsheets and stock-keeping systems
  • Building strong and productive relationships with suppliers

Applicants will need to have several years of merchandising experience within a horticulture setting, good communication and presentation skills, be highly analytical with advanced knowledge of Excel, be commercially aware and proactive, and be able to produce high quality work independently. This vacancy is not open to those wishing to live outside the area and work remotely on a permanent basis, therefore applicants must either already live in the south west of England or be able and willing to relocate.
