Additionally, the ideal candidate will:

  • Have extensive experience of retail buying (preferably electrical)
  • Be an accomplished manager, able to lead from the front and inspire others to follow
  • Understand the true meaning of commerciality!
  • Be an outstanding relationship builder

This is a once in a lifetime role! The position has come about as a result of continued growth and is a new position within a relatively flat structure.

There is a basic salary of up to £55k on offer, with good bonus and benefits.
