The Role:

We are looking for someone who loves solving complex problems in an analytically rigorous way. Trading is fast-paced so we need someone who likes dynamic decision making and analysis. As a relatively new function, you’ll also need to be comfortable with ambiguity. Lastly, this role requires significant collaboration and we need a candidate that is keen to learn about other functions, empathize and influence one-on-one and in presentations to large groups. This will be a highly impactful, high visibility role within the business.

What You’ll do:

  • You will take vast amounts of data in raw formats and translate into digestible insights, helping to diagnose trade performance
  • You will attend weekly meetings with key functions – eg., Marketing, Customer, Tech – and be the key spokesperson for Trade while fully understanding the wider business
  • You will cascade the insights, actions and needs of Trade
  • You will also understand the key functions’ insights, actions and needs, and its implications for Trade
  • You will then support these functions generating recommendations for Trade
  • You will gain buy-in and understanding from product owners and business managers
  • You will track internal and consumer trends to develop various analytics dashboards/ reports to ensure other teams are making data-driven decisions to drive trade
  • You will scope and develop short-term projects, from context, hypothesis, problem-solving, all the way to recommendation to senior business leaders, on how to improve Trade going forward

Who You Are:

  • You have excellent analytical and problem-solving skills, being able to develop hypothesis-led analysis and get into the detail as it requires
  • You are interested in understanding a highly complex business model and keen to make a sizable impact
  • You thrive in fast-paced environments and believe you’ll enjoy the demanding environment of retail trade - you can pivot between short- and long-term needs, gather implications quickly and proactively follow-through
  • You are great at building effective relationships across functions, partnering with analysts and senior experts across the business
  • You are experienced using excel and SQL (BigQuery). Experience with Looker, Google Analytics or Python would also be a plus
  • You are commercially minded, expert at looking for value and implications for Customers, Partners or Financials, both short and long term
  • You are highly confident in dealing with ambiguity and scoping work
  • You are experienced in digital marketing, e-commerce or tech products
  • You have excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • An understanding of fashion and /or luxury fashion in a retail environment is a bonus
