WHAT YOU’LL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR
- We’re doing far too much of everything manually, so need all our controls and processes looked at. From tightening up how we talk to our fulfillment house, to stock management, quality control processes, shelf-life analysis (to name but a few). HELP!
- Ordering the stock in a super savvy way. You’ll need to assess if we are working with the right suppliers… and whether we’re buying at the best possible prices. You’ll develop smart cost saving strategies so that the business can grow in a scalable way
- We want to work with our partner brands in a more strategic way and have some exciting plans to develop these relationships but… need someone to make them happen.
- Plus, if we were to say, ‘let’s move in to Europe’ – we’d need you to figure out how.
- …and if you’re obsessed with rubik’s cube then you’ll love getting your head around the product selection, forecast planning and metrics analysis for our weekly menus
- Oh, and did I mention we’d like as much of this automated and integrated in to our new website as possible? We’d look to you to guide us on this

- Someone who works well under pressure in a fast paced, entrepreneurial environment
