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 Trading Manager and you’ll be responsible for the trading of these categories online. Day-to-day, you’ll use your knowledge of the latest trends to make sure that categories are merchandised appropriately. 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 everything 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 a similar role before (with at least one year’s experience), preferably within digital or merchandising, and be comfortable compiling reports and working to sales plans. Passionate about luxury 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 offering to the next level.
