In this role, you’ll support the Digital Merchandising Manager in modernising and shaping the future of the way our customers and members shop at the Co-op. We’ve come a long way from where we were, but there’s more work to be done. We’re focusing on technology and how we can improve and automate operations, and what it means for our business.

  • support the Digital Merchandising Manager with day to day admin tasks
  • analyse and input data around product information and pricing
  • use a range of internal and external market data to support the build and development of online pricing and promotional strategies
  • spot trends and look for opportunities to reduce costs and improve processes
  • support with website content management

This role will suit people who have:

  • a passion for digital and online strategy, and merchandising
  • experience with using and analysing data
  • a basic understanding of SEO and CMS (content management systems)
  • good organisational and prioritisation skills; if you have project management experience, this’d be beneficial
  • great relationship building and management skills
  • the ability and confidence to work cross functionally
  • a good understanding of food retail – this is essential
