At Selfridges, we want our products to fly off the shelves – and you’ll use your analytical skills and merchandising experience to make sure that’s exactly what happens in our department.
KNOW THE ROLE
Taking responsibility for a team of three in one of our busiest areas, you’ll get the right stock to the right place at the right time and constantly monitor what’s selling and what’s not to maximise profitability. And while analysing figures and forecasting will be a big part of that, we’ll also expect you to work with visual merchandisers, buyers, retail ops and the distribution centres to make informed decisions on how to increase sales - and our bottom line.
KNOW WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR
Highly numerate and analytical, you’ll have excellent problem solving and decision making skills. Good attention to detail is important and as well as being an experienced Merchandiser, you’ll be a confident communicator, able to challenge and influence others.
KNOW WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU

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.
