Product Manager, Bedford -
A global-leading consumer electronics manufacturer is looking to recruit a Product Manager to join their Bedford team. They're known for a wide range of innovative products, and this is an excellent opportunity to join a worldwide brand with a renowned reputation.
A key element of your role will be management, as you'll manage UK products to optimise company budget objectives while maximising available sales opportunities. You'll also need to consider the stock planning process and retailer forecasting, ensuring that you're always hitting targets, maximising business opportunities.
The role comes with a great deal of responsibility, as you'll take full ownership of range creation and the management of products, and will oversee the complete product cycle, from cost negotiation, to administration, to delivery and invoice.
Good communication skills will be vital, as liaising with local markets for feedback will be a regular activity, alongside reporting on monthly sales, margin overall, and sales by market. Importantly, you'll also ensure that the product range reflects the needs of the market in pricing and availability, devising new ideas of how to increase and maintain sales.
Your responsibilities will cover both the UK and Europe, and so a background in electronics in a B2B or B2C industry will ensure that you have the necessary experience to succeed.
Looking for a step-up from your current role? This could be perfect for you, as they're looking for someone with drive and motivation to not only develop the business product ranges, but to also develop their own skills and ability. Therefore, personality is a crucial element to the role, as you'll need to demonstrate an enthusiastic and positive attitude and aptitude.
Strong commercial and analytical skills will also come in useful, alongside a keen eye for detail and a good knowledge of marketing, product, and industry.
There will be the opportunity for occasional travel to Europe, and an exciting bonus and benefits package. This world-leading electronics expert are successful in all that they do, and they'll demonstrate the same dedication to helping you succeed!
This role would be most applicable to candidates travelling from areas of Bedford and the wider region, including Clapham, Shuttleworth, Biggleswade, Bromham, Lower Shelton, St Neots, Wyboston, Little Barford, and Milton Keynes.
