Although this is an entry-level position it bears extensive responsibilities, focussing on the provision of detailed sales and stock performance data analysis to inform key inventory decisions / strategy. So it's important not to get too hung up on the 'admin' part of the merchandise administration assistant job title - this is not an office junior's role, you'll be putting your specialist numerical skills to the test every single day. Other key responsibilities of the role include:
* Providing key administrative support to the merchandising team;
* Working closely with stores and other head office teams on the timely allocation of stock and the identification of high-performing merchandise as well as potential markdowns;
* Acting as a key point of contact within the merchandising function for colleagues and suppliers alike;
* Undertaking ad hoc project and reporting work as required.

Thankfully for you this retail favourite recognises the contribution made to its profitability by the merchandising function. Consequently it works hard to provide a positive, engaging environment in which to work. It will also look to build on your existing skill-set, paving the way for future progression within the merchandising team. In order to be considered for the merchandise administration assistant's role however you will need to possess:
* A business-related/financial/analytical degree;
* Excellent numerical skills;
* Previous retail experience - be it from a head office placement or from working in stores;
* Resilience, determination and the ability to work under pressure;
* The ability to listen well and learn fast.

There's nothing quite like a career that taps into your real strengths, that enables you to do the things you love. And that's precisely what this retailer wants to provide hard-working, numerate professionals. In response to your positive commercial impact upon the department, you will enjoy an excellent salary and benefits package along with real bonus potential.
