Position Description

In our Product and Supply team, we are recruiting for a Category Executive to support with the management of our product categories. In this role you’ll be responsible for providing data and insight on current range performance and making recommendations for future ranges using commercial insight and competitor analysis. You will make decisions relating to sales forecasts and product availability, ensuring all plans are communicated effectively to internal and external stakeholders.

This is a key role within the Product and Supply team that will also support the management of supplier availability versus demand and versus the commercial targets we have in both brands. This role is critical to providing reports on sales performance of our product ranges and services, so will suit someone that loves data and loves looking for trends in data as well as enjoying sharing the insight they’ve found within that data.

You will also oversee other product data activities such as tracking wholesale costs, margin reporting and analysis, and ensuring all product data is loaded into our systems in line with business requirements.

This is a fantastic opportunity to work across multiple brands with varied supply chains, objectives and processes that might appeal to someone looking to take the next step in their career by taking on more responsibility or someone that wants to take their transferable skills in a different direction.

Required Experience

In order to perform well in the role, we would expect you to have;

• Experience in a Category or Product Development role, preferably in a retail trading or ecommerce environment
• Skills in report production or producing sales forecasts and working with data
• Experience and skills in using systems such as a CMS, Business Objects, Google Analytics etc
• Excellent communication, stakeholder management and relationship skills
• Accuracy and attention to detail
• Good analytical skills.

An understanding of the floral industry as well as some experience of line management would be beneficial but not essential.

Salary and Benefits

Our colleagues benefit from the attractive benefits you'd expect to see in a professional and successful organisation, such as; competitive market-rate salaries, generous holiday allowances, a company pension scheme, health insurance, bonus schemes and staff discounts - but they also benefit hugely from working in a friendly, supportive and flexible environment, where not only are they treated as a professional but also as a member of the Interflora 'family'.

We have a very flexible approach to hybrid working, where our colleagues are trusted to choose how they manage their time and to decide where and how they work – just as long as they come to the office in Sleaford to collaborate and connect with each other at least twice per month (although many colleagues choose to be in the office much more often than that).

We love to spoil our staff as well and make them feel loved on their special days - each new starter gets a beautiful Interflora bouquet to say “hello and welcome” on their first day and every colleague is treated to another bouquet on their birthday!

Employer Description

We are proud to be the world’s largest and most experienced flower delivery network. Every day, people trust us to deliver their best wishes and sentiments on their behalf. But it’s not just about being the largest - we pride ourselves on being the most personable too. Everyone involved - from our florists, to our delivery drivers, to our Customer Advisors all take care to add that little personal touch.

We’re also proud that so many award-winning florists choose to be part of the Interflora family. Each of our expert florists has a unique blend of skills, creativity and attention to detail that is needed to create every handmade Interflora bouquet.

Our colleagues tell us that they love working here and that we have a real ‘family feel’ that makes us a unique and great place to work.
