We are…

We’re Screwfix and we’re proud of it. We turnover £1.5 billion per year and we have over 12,000 employees. We’re one of the fastest growing retailers in the UK, a true leader in the E-Commerce industry, and part of the 77,000 people strong Kingfisher PLC Group. Now why wouldn’t you want to be a part of that?

We haven’t got to where we are without taking risks. We work hard, but we have fun along the way. With over 600 stores and counting, we’re not slowing down. Our people love us so much that they’ve rated us as one of the UK’s best places to work for, via Glassdoor, two years in a row. As our Category Planner, you’ll help plan for our customers’ future needs, as well as react to their current ones, so that they’re confident we always have what they want, when they want it.

Let’s hammer out the detail

By getting to know our customers inside-out, we’re able to use this to our advantage and theirs (not least because they’ve come to rely on us having just what they’re looking for without asking). Working closely with the Category Manager, you’ll help to define your category strategy. You’ll then act as the ‘go-to’ Customer Champion, working across the business to achieve the desired outcome. You’ll keep on top of how the category is performing (by analysing internal and market data), measure success, and help roll-out agreed ranging, pricing and promotional tactics to keep everything on track. You’ll then keep key stakeholders up-to-speed, raising any issues, and work with broader external suppliers when needed.

You are…

·An experienced Category Planner who is able to jump straight in

·Highly analytical, able to draw insights from data and use this to help shape strategy

·Understanding of our customers and will use their performance measures (such as penetration, frequency, AOV and so on), to achieve success

·Adept at writing clear briefs, with superb project management, presentation and communication skills

·Confident with Microsoft Excel and PowerPoint

What’s in it for you?

We mentioned you’ll need to work hard…. That’s why we make every effort to thank you. So aside from all the great stuff we’ve mentioned - a competitive salary, 33 days’ holiday, an award-winning pension scheme, life cover, 20% discount with Screwfix and B&Q, discounted healthcare and company share save schemes are all on offer.

We’ll also help you #MakeMoreofYourself with our excellent in-house training and ongoing development programmes.
