Job Description

What’s in this for you?
  • Be part of a family-owned business that looks after their performers incredibly well. Well over half of their total workforce belongs to the ‘Five Year Club.’
  • A rare organisational atmosphere hallmarked by kindness, professionalism, generosity and high expectations.
  • Opportunity to develop and implement ‘game-changing’ inventory practices.
Your prospective employer:

This is a ‘gem’ of a retail brand that Victorians associate with quality, a beautiful shopping experience and top-end service.  Proudly family-owned with a cohesive leadership team at the helm, they can be nimble to market demands and innovative in all aspects of their operation so that every touch point with suppliers and customers is exceptional.  An opportunity now presents for an eager Inventory Analyst to play an integral role in driving excellence through inventory operations and practices.
What’s involved:
  • You will have responsibility for managing the company’s total inventory to ensure accuracy of inventory records and maximise cash flow for the business.
  • This will entail mining and analysing existing inventory data where you will identify old, obsolete, damaged or surplus stock and managing this out of the business in an orderly and timely fashion, using existing and new channels. In this process, you will naturally rally the support of internal stakeholders and external suppliers to ensure that objectives are being met.
  • You will then develop, recommend and implement the operational policies, practices and initiatives to improve future inventory performance.
 Here’s what it will take:
  • Experience within a Merchandise Analyst or Inventory Analyst role where you have managed an inventory holding, ensuring optimal stock performance.
  • Your experience may come from Retail/B2C or B2B. Importantly, you have ‘runs on the board’ liquidating old, obsolete, damaged or surplus stock through different channels including retail, clearance, supplier support and others such as auction houses etc.
  • Your data-mining and analysis skills are second-to-none, and you are highly conversant with MS Excel.
  • You are known for your influencing skills and negotiation prowess.
  • You have developed and implemented ‘best practice’ operational systems and processes.
If this sounds like the opportunity that would bring out the best in you, your experience and your potential…I’m keen to talk.  Please call Nicola Crocco on:  0420 990 602 for a confidential chat.
