Full-Time On Shelf Availability Analyst

Co – Op – Posted by AdminManchester, England, United Kingdom

Job Description

Over the next 5 years we’re going to grow the Co-op and make the communities we serve great places to live. We’re planning to invest in the businesses we have now, and explore new opportunities to make a difference. Right now, we’re improving the availability of the products our customers love most. We need to recruit a talented on-shelf availability analyst to support our stores across the UK, and make sure our shelves are stocked with all that our customers need. It’s an opportunity which requires the highest attention to detail making sure we’ve got the right products, in the right place and at the right time. If you can bring us that, we can offer you the chance to build a career with a business which puts people right at the heart of its strategy.

As an on-shelf availability analyst with us you’ll support up to 2500 stores across the UK, making sure that they’re always fully stocked in what is a heavily data focused role. You’ll be aligned to a set of product lines, which is yet to be determined, analysing trends and data to make sure that there’s a plan in place for stock replenishment, particularly around seasonal periods and promotions. You’ll work collaboratively with suppliers to make sure the products are always where they need to be and help improve the process with them where possible.

What you’ll do

  • use data and trend analysis to make sure products are always stocked in store
  • work with suppliers to resolve any issues and drive improvements
  • help with the seasonal planning and availability of products going to store
  • carry out range events, shifting old stock and bringing new stock in
  • run and develop key reports using information from depots, stores and suppliers, especially for daily gap and supplier forecast reports

To get going quickly in this role, we’ll need you to be used to collaborating closely with colleagues. As you’ll be using and manipulating data every single day, you’ll need to be confident in and have previous data analysis experience. We’ll also look for you to be exceptionally organised, with previous experience of meeting demanding deadlines.

We’d love to talk to you if:

  • you’ve got experience working with data ideally where there’s a complex variety of data sources
  • you’ve got great communication skills
  • you’re able to collaborate and work effectively as part of a close knit team
  • you can prioritise and plan your time effectively
  • you’re confident influencing and challenging internal colleagues and external partners
  • you’re a competent user of IT and can pick up new systems easily
  • you preferably have good knowledge of retail and how store operations work

Why Co-op?

When you join the Co-op you’ll become part of an organisation where principles are just as important as profits. You’ll also get a competitive salary, 28 days holiday, an annual incentive scheme, discounts on all kinds of products and services, and a pension with up to 10% employer contributions.

We’re actively building diverse teams and welcome applications from everyone. But we know that simply having a diverse workforce is not enough. We want to create an inclusive environment, where everyone can contribute their best work and develop to their full potential. We celebrate our differences, and recognise the importance of teams reflecting the communities they serve.

We can make reasonable adjustments to our interview process according to your needs. And we offer a flexible working environment, enabling our colleagues to adjust their hours to accommodate personal circumstances.
