  • Autonomy to establish, drive and lead the product positioning for the entire product portfolio and ‘all the tools and support’ to get it done

Cutting through the crowd with a collection of performance driven products, consumers worldwide love this brands’ haircare honesty and reliability reinforced with highly effective results. The secret to their success and growth since inception has been the investment in getting the right people who form part of their ‘family culture’ along with the real partnership and ability to provide innovation and value to their clients. With their three core pillars being colour, retail and electrical, they are well positioned as the perfect partner to make further noise in both the trade and consumer markets.

What will you do in an average week?

Working to your strengths you will continually enhance the value proposition for their products that ultimately drives excellence in service and delivers strong sales and profit results. More specifically this will see you:
  • Develop the ‘go to market’ strategy and create the product positioning, marketing and commercial plans for the  product range across e-commerce, the national client network and international partners
  • Implement the discipline of range planning to maximise profitability
  • Analyse data and market opportunities and constantly be making recommendations, pivoting where necessary and plotting courses of action

  • And more…  
Here’s what it will take:
  • A strong interest in Haircare products as well as product/category management experience within Haircare and/or Beauty.
  • A thirst for analysing data and sharing your commercial insights. You love the numbers!
  • Flexible and adaptable: You embrace change and are not precious; you roll with the punches with your sleeves rolled up
  • Lateral in your thinking; you can work outside processes and think quickly on your feet
  • Have an incredible work ethos; you are highly driven and self-motivated
  • Have a willingness to take some risks and learn from others as well as learn from your experiences
  • Brilliant communication: you have an ability to translate and operationalise the ‘vision’ into day to day sales and product performance
