A new opportunity has arisen looking for an experienced interim Trading Manager to work for one of the main players within the consumer technology and telecoms market to join their trading team looking after the daily, weekly and monthly trading plans in what is a multi-channel environment (direct retail, indirect sales channel and web).
In this role you will be responsible for all trading activities within this specific category, covering both small tweaks and larger scale changes on a day-to-day, week-to-week and month-to-month basis to ensure the overall objectives of volume and value of sales is successfully achieved.
A highly commercial role with a huge opportunity to positively impact a P&L within a very fast-paced and dynamic market due to its competitive nature. Owning the tactical trading roadmap will mean roughly a 12 week rolling view, needing to balance both the immediate need to make up any potential short-falls through short run offers, balancing the offset of margin giveaways with longer term pay-back opportunities too in order to ensure both sell through rates and value is achieved overall.
The trading aspect of this role isn't just to new customers, so there will be a need to work closely with the CRM decisioning business unit to outline qualifying rules for offers to be presented to existing customers too both through on and offline channels.
Naturally any tweak or change to trading plans or customer incentives and the likes will need robust impact assessment to ensure longer term objectives remain achievable.
