We are looking for a part-time Merchandiser to work on the Welwyn Hatfield Times. Merchandising plays an important role in the development, growth and success of our copy sales and promotions.
The role will involve building strong relationships with key retailers in your territory, from supermarkets to independent retailers. It will require an organised approach, maximising your daily call plans and from time to time being involved in delivering promotional and marketing campaigns that will generate response, product sales and, where appropriate, other revenue for Archant.
The successful candidate will work closely with the Circulation Sales Manager and other members of the Circulation team to fulfil their role and continually evolve campaigns such as Win Cash and Schools Supplements, whilst maintaining and increasing sales for our paid-for products. You will have an enthusiastic can-do attitude, great rapport with people and the ability to think on your feet.
Candidates must be able to demonstrate a customer relationship/account management background and excellent communication skills. The ability to be persuasive and to build strong healthy relationships with the people they deal with will be key. Educated to GCSE level or equivalent, the role requires candidates to be reliable, self-motivated and able to use their own initiative. The ideal candidate will have a friendly, persuasive personality, be a problem-solver, and have a good knowledge of the local area. A full valid driving licence and vehicle is essential.
The successful candidate may be required to work some promotions or events, so a flexible attitude towards working outside normal office hours will be necessary. There also may be the requirement to deliver promotional equipment such as display stands from time to time.
