Solid experience working with continuous insight? Looking for a new, challenging role?

An excellent opportunity for a commercially-savvy Category Manager has just arisen with a leading food retail business in central London.

This is a highly commercial and diverse role, supporting the Commercial Management team in delivering commercial and customer insight, with the aim of maximising profit and minimising risk through a structured analytical approach.

Key responsibilities:

  • Ensure effective analysis of activities within Commercial plans, to both forecast and review the impact of range changes across multiple brands
  • Analysis of current category performance to shape and implement change to drive sales and profit benefit to the organisation
  • Ensuring control of product trials is managed and analysis shared with key stakeholders in relevant forums
  • Supporting Head of Commercial to ensure preparation analysis is completed to support marketing briefs
  • Working with Brand Managers to ensure consistent implementation of the agreed strategy at brand level

  • Line management responsibility for 1 direct report (Category Analyst)

The ideal candidate will be commercially numerate with a previous experience in Category Management or Analyst as a preference. You will have a proven track record in understanding and delivery of sales, profit and margin and all relevant commercial and brand marketing KPI's.

Experience in multi-brand or retail environment is desirable, but not essential.

In return, the company offers an excellent package, along with a clearly defined path for progression for strong performers and many more fantastic company benefits!
