Category Manager – Slough

Want to work in Group Commercial?

Do you have experience of developing category plans? Great – you’ll need to develop, own and deliver the category strategy. To create these plans you will need to be confident analysing and interpreting data to produce insight based plans. Be able to incorporate our commercial strategy, supporting both our Own Brand and Branded business.

You will be responsibility for working in conjunction with the buyers to deliver profitability for the category whilst maintain supplier relationships and therefore income. You will have ownership for the day to day management of core own brand product to ensure consistent quality of products, and all packaging has the correct identity and is compliant with current legislation.
We work in a deadline driven, creative environment so you need to be used to working to tight timelines, have good problem solving skills and a good eye for detail.

Care – We take pride in what we do, no matter what we do, and you should too. We listen to what our customers and sales teams are telling us because it’s our business to find solutions to their problems and adapt to the changing market quickly. If you want to take real ownership and are looking for your opportunity to shine in an exciting and challenging commercial team, then get in touch with us, we’d love to hear from you.

Share – Work well as part of a team? Super – you’ll need to work cross functionally with buying, sales teams and suppliers so your communication, influencing skills and passion to deliver will be key in making sure you meet your deadlines.

Dare – Do you like to challenge the way things are done? We do! So you’ll need to too! Make your mark. You’ll need to come up with new ideas and ‘think outside the box’, demonstrating that you are a champion of innovation on a daily basis to inspire colleagues and customers to adopt new ways of working
