Firstly, Buying and Design teams to ensure the products bought will be relevant to the sales plan, and that you will get in touch with the right suppliers to reorder. Store and Web teams will help you display products instore and online correctly, and Marketing will offer guidelines to maintain the voice of the brand across store plans and eCommerce. 
 
The day to day responsibilities will include planning products ranges, checking stock availability, working closely with stores and eCommerce, using relevant software to deliver sales statistics and present reports and maintaining an awareness of competitor performance.
