Job description / Role
Merchandisers - Retail Brands - Kuwait
Working for a specific brand, merchandisers work as part of the team that ensure the right stock is in the right stores at the right time. With stores across MENA this provides ambitious individuals the opportunity to work across multiple countries. In addition to stock planning the team recommend pricing levels and decide on sale lines and discounts.
If you already have some experience in merchandising and stock planning then a move to Alshaya could open up many opportunities to grow your career further. Many of our Senior Merchandisers and Brand Managers started as Merchandisers and there is also plenty of opportunity to move brands and be exposed to different product lines and customer profiles.
If you have no experience in this area but possess excellent Excel, numerical and analytical skills then the role of Assistant Merchandiser would be the first step on a career path in this field.
