Stock Control Manager

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 traditional garden centre originally started life as a family-run nursery and we now have ambitious plans to transform this site from its current format, which generates £3m in sales per year, into a purpose-built Garden and Living Centre capable of generating £10m+.

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 continually monitor all stock control processes in store including goods-in, till operations, stock takes, wastage, stock ordering and stock level accuracy, and take any necessary action to resolve any issues.

You will work closely with department heads and the centre manager to ensure that all these processes are adhered to correctly, timely and accurately. With over 50,000 SKUs you will clearly not be able to manage all stock processes yourself so training and coaching is a key element of this role as you would need to ensure that all relevant centre staff and managers are fully conversant with all systems and process relating to stock management.

ABOUT YOU
To be successful as Stock Control Manager you will need to have experience of working in a stock management role ideally from within a large retail environment.

You will have excellent IT skills especially in Excel and preferably some experience of using stock control databases. You will have an energetic personality with a positive can-do attitude and a natural ability to engage and inspire your colleagues around you.

If this sounds like you, then we would love to hear from you. In return you can expect a rewarding career with a competitive salary and benefits package.
