I have the pleasure of recruiting for a Global Household name who are embarking upon a period of positive transformation with the aim of aligning their business to a regional structure and a more effective way of working.
A key part of the positive period of change is implementing a specific Category team across all regions. 

Let me tell you about the business.

With an array of brands and products that would make any competitor envious, you will aiming for “Perfect Store” concept being bought to life
As this is a new way of working, you may not have all the data that you are used too.  As key part of the role will be to utilise what you have and then focus on how you can get more data and insight.

About you
You will have experience of working within a Category Manager role that is customer (Retailer) facing.
Whilst you will be data and insight driven, you will also be able to operate within a structure where you will make commercial decisions with limited data – you need to be confident in your decision making skills!
Influencing skills is a must.  The role will have several internal and external stakeholders, so an effective communication style and a power of persuasion is key
As the role is customer facing, being a German speaker is a must.
