Job Description

Your prospective employer:

…is one to watch. In the highly contested Hardware/Tools category, they are tackling their market opponents “head-on” with exceptional breadth and quality of range and advice. Their results are phenomenal: tracking well above the market norm with strong organic sales growth and a continuing, national store rollout strategy. Momentum like this can only be driven and sustained by talented individuals working at every level of the business. An outstanding opportunity now presents for a dynamic Category Manager to join one of the biggest engine rooms in the business, steering a high profile category:  Power Tools.

What’s in this for you?
  • Finesse your reputation as you drive the performance of a category that is going from 'great' to 'greater'
  • Enjoy going to work each day to a modern, bright work space and a high-performing team
  • Report to a dynamic and well respected business leader who wants their team to fulfil their potential
What will be expected of you?
  • You will set the category strategy and then ensure it is flawlessly executed across the store network
  • You will work closely with suppliers to astutely manage the trading terms and ensure that the range architecture is delivering to customer needs
  • With one eye on competitors, you will develop pricing and promotional programs that are expertly timed and actioned
Here’s what it will take:
  • You are a successful Category Manager or Buyer from the retail side, or you might be a Product Manager from the supplier side looking to move a step closer to your customer
  • Your product experience is relevant; most likely Hardware or Tools-related, with a strong technical component
  • You work with pace, enthusiasm and urgency to stay on top of market trends and ensure that customers can be offered the best possible range at all times
If this sounds like the career kick-start to 2020 you’ve been thinking about, please call Nicola Crocco on: 0420 990 602 for a confidential chat.
