This Hired Guns client, a renowned lifestyle brand best known for its stylish and well-designed writing products, is looking for a Visual Merchandiser to join their New York office and take their in-store retailer programs to the next level.
A creative at heart, you are the bridge between an idea and the action that makes it happen. Above all else, you can bring the vision of the brand to a concrete, in-store representation. You don’t just understand the market, you let it inspire you. Operationally focused and analytically driven, with your honed graphics skills at the ready, you’ve got the ability to process information quickly, multi-task, and take on tight deadlines. You know how to maximize sales through merchandising and brand implementation — like a breathtaking display — and you can create an effective dialogue with external vendors to ensure the integrity of your company’s message.
As the Visual Merchandiser for this brand, you will be the bridge between the international design team and the American market. This a position for a self-managed soul who will be able to adapt and interpret without losing the original vision. Be prepared to carry a lot of responsibility as the face and contact between Europe and US vendors. To really bring those displays to life, you will need to write a clear design instruction guidebook for each merchandising solution, trade show event, and creative installation.
Day-to-day duties include the management and oversight of materials shipments, arrivals, and in-store organization, working with external vendors within a specified budget for each initiative, and translating quantifiable success via best-sellers reports, turns, and space productivity. Ultimately, you are tasked with maximizing sales opportunities through creative merchandising and product allocation.
Italian language skills are a major plus. And dust off that stylish carry-on bag, because some US travel is going to be an exciting and fun part of this on-the-go job.
This is an exciting, growing, international company. Come work with a team of people every bit as elegant as the product line they create.
