Description

  • Senior role within the business.
  • Work from home for the first 12-24 months.
  • Regular International travel.

Here is an incredible and very unique opportunity to join a fine art paper manufacturer as their Senior International Product Manager based in Wells, Somerset.  Whilst the new manufacturing site is being set up in Wells you will work remotely from home (12-24 months) and visit the Berkshire office once or twice a month.  There will also be a requirement to travel to the France Head Office once a month, and occasional travel when there is an event or exhibition, home or abroad. 

What you'll be doing

This is a senior role with a lot of responsibility, you will be a key driver in the success and continued growth of this company.  With close to 2000 SKUs spanning Digital Fine Art, Print and Technical Imaging, you will need to pull SAP reports, utilise the data on product performance and make strategic decisions and recommendations on product portfolio, price and relevant inventory. 

You will provide competitor and customer insight to ensure the product and price offering is relevant.  You must profile the customer and understand the needs and demands of their business, this includes distributors and resellers, as well as the end user. 

You will manage new product introductions as well as end of life products, and provide regular reporting as you go, whilst also providing forecast information in to the supply chain. 

This is a company with a Global reach, and as such you will ensure the pricing strategy is implemented in all countries.  There will be ad hoc events and exhibitions where you will be required to attend, and this could be in the UK or as far away as Japan, so you will need a degree of flexibility, but all expenses will be covered.  You will be a confident communicator, feeling at home in front of an audience giving presentations, and supporting product launches.

What experience you'll need to apply

  • Proven experience within a similar role
  • Highly numerate and analytical
  • Strong project management skills
  • High degree of self motivation and drive
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Confident when giving presentations
  • A second language would be beneficial but not essential
  • Knowledge of digital imaging, although unlikely, would be great

What you'll get in return for your experience

This is a great opportunity to make this role your own and directly impact the success and continued growth of this brand.  No two days will be the same, you will have the flexibility of working from home for the first 12-24 months, regular travel to other sites and foreign soils; this is a highly varied role.  They're offering you a competitive salary (£35k-£40k) and all expenses paid during your travels.
