Job Description

As a Store Estate Planner, you play a critical role in supporting the delivery of the new store development roadmap which is a key part of the Food Group Transformation Programme. You will be responsible for managing the sales forecasts for our year 1, renewal and closure stores at category and line level ensuring sales and availability are maximised and waste minimised through detailed probing and analysing trends and opportunities.

An integral part of the role requires you to gather and interpret data to influence future allocations in stores which have no previous sales history with the aim to identify clone/base stores or products to mirror your allocations. You will also spend part of your week in our new and renewal stores to identify opportunity once opened.

In addition, you will work alongside your colleagues in the team to manage all peak events for our Year 1 stores and in doing so, develop cross-functional relationships across the business.

Whilst supporting our new and renewal stores in store, you will play a key role in ensuring store teams adhere to all stock accuracy processes and deliver impeccable standards.

In essence the team support main chain and renewal stores during their first year and this role is around forecasting and allocation. The role will require travel to stores (with overnight stays) and also some weekend working on a rotational basis (typically one day per weekend, remote, but over Peak they may be required in the office). We have renewal stores opening in both the UK and Ireland. It should be noted that whilst we have the renewal programme in flight, successful candidates may go into other areas eg New Stores as opposed to Renewal.

We’re looking for individuals with great excel skills and who can interpret data, analyse trends (it is not a data inputting role) and make informed decisions. They also need to have good stakeholder management skills working with colleagues in the support office and also in stores.

Ideally we are looking for individuals who’re available to start immediately or are on a short notice period. The role is a RLC. The salary band opens at £24,000 and we’re happy to look up to £40,000.

If you think this is you, please apply today.

Whilst we would like to respond to all our on-line applicants, regrettably we are unable to do so due to the high volumes we receive. If you’ve not heard from us within two weeks, unfortunately on this occasion your application has been unsuccessful.
