Behind the impressive store fit-outs and clever digital spaces, retail is about one thing – people finding things they want.
As part of the Merchandising Team, you’re at the heart of the business. Your role might be about products, but it starts with truly understanding people. You’ll get to know what your customers want now, and more importantly, what they’ll need and want in the future, so it’s in-store waiting at the right time and the right price. That means you’ll be an exceptional trend spotter, fast-thinking and comfortable with change. You’ll also become an expert in your product line – and have heaps of fun trialling new additions.
As part the Merchandising Team, you’ll find no two days are the same. You’ll spend time sourcing products here and overseas, negotiating with suppliers, trend-forecasting, pricing, stock holding and ranging.
The Warehouse Group’s brands sell almost everything imaginable, and our Merchandising Teams are often working in areas they’re passionate about. We have avid adventure sports people trialling the latest snow gear, fashion enthusiasts sourcing the latest ethical, affordable clothing, and technophiles who get a first look at the coolest new gadgets.
You’ll work at the centre of our business, talking to all departments, from finance to shipping and logistics to marketing and operations. This gives you the opportunity to experience every part of our organisation. You’re also a critical part of how we’ll deliver on our promise to help NZ flourish. The products you find will be sourced with sustainability and with ethical production standards in mind.
