An incredible opportunity has arisen for an experienced category manager to join our organisation and help us deliver sustainable market share growth and profit improvements to our shareholders.
Based from our Christchurch office and reporting to the Head of Category, your remit will encompass end to end category management of a portfolio of key categories, including range planning, forecasting, sourcing great products, promotional planning, pricing strategies and merchandising.
You will be engaging, motivating and have presentation and interpersonal skills that see you build instant rapport and strong, sustainable relationships with suppliers at all levels of the organisation.
Your commercial acumen will have been well honed in a role of similar scope and complexity, and you will have a track record of delivering category growth and organised strategy of innovative commercial solutions.
Ideally you will have strong knowledge of fencing and electric fencing categories and a rural industry background.
