Senior Merchandiser
About

I’ve always had a passion for Retail which came naturally as a calling, from working on the shop floor to securing my 1st role in Merchandising at M&Co I have focused firmly on this career path. At Mango I became fascinated by the machine behind the scenes, wondering why we had too much or not enough of something, watching the customers react to new lines and tracking best sellers. We worked on commission I might add so I was very invested in learning more! I just had to get behind the scenes so after graduation I headed straight for a position in Merchandising starting as an MAA. Since the start of my career in I have made it my mission to try gain as much experience as I can across a broad section of the industry and always move into a role different to the last. As a result, I have established myself as a Core Merchandiser but have followed this with positions in Ecommerce, International, Franchising and Partnerships. I’m experienced in working in companies of all sizes from the Global scale of Disney and Burberry to the smaller start up environments such as Surfdome.com. I have experience from working across a wide section of departments and in addition further insight from working with international markets. I’m ready for the next chapter of my journey now and with my background I can offer a unique perspective. I’m a candidate who will add value to your business with an exceptional strategic outlook, but I’m also someone who gets stuck in. I enjoy meeting new people and hearing new perspectives so please reach out to me if you’d like to talk shop.
