Denholm Associates have a fantastic opportunity for you, if you are a detail-orientated, analytical, yet creative and numerical administrator. We pride ourselves on working with both established names, as well as with more creative and unusual companies, looking for exceptional talent to add value to the team.
The role of Assistant Merchandiser is an intriguing and challenging mix of creativity, administration and supply chain support and will be an amazing opportunity for a numerical, detail-orientated, analytically-inclined candidate, ideally with stock-based experience, but, more importantly, with the right attention to detail, willingness to learn and enthusiasm to commit to an exciting, creative and imaginative company.
This company was established 15 years ago as a small-scale costume business, but has grown, exponentially, into a world leader in retail, fancy dress and costume-merchandising. Based near the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, the company offers more than 4000 lines, has been granted licenses by such entertainment giants as Disney and sells their goods via well-known e-commerce sites, such as Amazon and EBay. They also supply retail outlets across the UK, EU and US, from warehouses based in each location, as well as via the afore-mentioned e-commerce brands.
Initially working remotely, the Assistant Merchandiser will work 2/3 days per week from the office in Edinburgh’s beautiful Old Town, working alongside an experienced, inspirational Merchandiser, supporting her in growing the fancy dress and golf section of the business. As most of the manufacturing is carried out in China and, with the business being cyclical, based around major party seasons synonymous with costumes (for example, Halloween and Carnivals), you would be fully-involved with stock investment and buying, based on anticipated sales.
If you have an affinity with Excel and other stock-taking records, AND/OR have a desire to use your analytical, detail-orientated, numerical, creativity to learn such skills, with a love of all things costume and fancy-dress, this is absolutely the role for you.
