Are you a graduate of retail fashion, Business, or Finance with bags of talent and an interest in fashion retail?

Maybe you’re currently a Merchandising Assistant? If you’re looking for the next step in your career, opportunities don’t come much bigger than a Trainee Merchandiser at Primark Reading.

This is a great entry level role in fashion retail and Merchandising, with key responsibilities supporting our Merchandising team. You’ll also have an amazing opportunity to learn about the industry and progress in a Merchandiser role.

In a competitive industry, we’re the growing business you can’t hold back. Right now, we’re expanding across the UK, Europe, and the US. So, if you’re a computer native, pride yourself on being organised and have a passion for all things fashion then we need you on board as we continue to grow!

What we’re looking for:
Someone with an understanding of Fashion and Merchandising. Qualifications in Fashion, Merchandising, Retail Management, Business, Maths, or a similar discipline are a plus. Or, if you’re already a talented Merchandising Assistant we would be very interested in hearing from you, as we need you to have:

An eye for detail. Responsible for sales and stock monitoring, you’ll need to have your eye on many things at once. Whether it’s supporting the Merchandising team in delivering sales, stock turn, or hitting contribution budgets. You’ll also help to set up and manage line projections. All this means your time management skills will be key.

A way with numbers. This part of the role is analytical so if you’re handy with calculations, you’ll excel. You’ll be responsible for investigating and solving data inaccuracies and producing analysis
reports including strategy, sign off and store range presentations.

An organisation obsession. It’s important for you to stay on top of and be aware of the development of range and option plans and any store or style grading amendments. So, knowing what’s going on
throughout the Primark network is key.

Why work with us?

As well as giving you a competitive salary, we’ll provide you with a progressive career path. Clear advancement is what we’re all about at Primark.

We’re always open to talking about your development and we offer lots of fantastic training courses to really help you shine. You’ll also have more responsibility than at your average retailer, so you’ll be able to learn quickly.

We’re proud of our friendly culture at Primark. You’ll have the opportunity to get to know some great people in a fast-paced, exciting environment. Plus, we’re well equipped for a healthy lifestyle
with our own café, canteen, and gym, as well as a brand-new fitness studio with a variety of classes available. So, if you have the right experience and want to be part of one of the fastest growing retailers, apply now.
