Harlow Garden Centre, Harlow
40 Hours per week, Full Time/Permanent Position

A fantastic opportunity has arisen to join our management team at Harlow Garden Centre as Stock Control Manager. Our Stock Control managers are responsible for overseeing our stock management processes across all departments within the business.

ABOUT THE CENTRE
Harlow Garden Centre joined the Blue Diamond Group in May 2016.

This new centre is due to be developed during 2017/18 and once completed it will offer our customers a truly unique retail experience, showcasing the very best in garden and home living products.

ABOUT THE ROLE
As Stock Control Manager you are the centre's first point of contact for all queries relating to stock control.

You will have an energetic personality with a positive can-do attitude and a natural ability to engage and inspire your colleagues around you.
