Our client is quite possibly the most diverse independently-owned and successful Watch and Jewellery business in the market place today. Not only engaged in Jewellery manufacture and the operation of their own distinctive regional retail stores, the acquisition of an e-commerce operation has now given them national and indeed international consumer reach.
Our client’s enduring trade passion is uniqueness, a sentiment that encompasses not just their own jewellery brands but also like-minded manufacturers from other specialities including fine jewellery and luxury watchmakers. For new market entrants who engineer beauty and luxury that is different from the more commonly-available brands, our client provides a distribution platform that celebrates uniqueness and individuality, affording consumers a genuine breadth of manufacturing brilliance.
The search is now in full throttle to locate a Business Manager able to move this unique company trading post to a level significantly above and beyond its proven early success.
First and foremost you need to be a strong, proven Retail Management Professional, who already commands an ultra-organised store and provides reliable, clear direction and leadership to your supporting team. In your book, customer service has no half measures, and you ensure that both existing and future team members completely buy into your unshakeable service standards. Empowering your sales team to be best equipped to serve is your constant focus.
Good existing knowledge of the recognised luxury brands in the watch and jewellery arena will be tremendously helpful, but equally important is your keenness to learn from emerging marques whose future may one day eclipse the established order.
A natural communicator both internally and externally, you are au fait with every appropriate marketing tool, including social media channels. You will be encouraged to build a close direct rapport with company suppliers, ensuring the ultimate brand service experience accompanies the sale of every precious item.
You exude gravitas and a diplomatic personal presence, able to secure ever-increasing local credibility and reputation to your store, without disrespect to the many other market participants within the vicinity.
You may count on every assistance from the senior levels of the company, and your pioneering ability will ensure that further areas of additional responsibility and influence will quickly follow.
If you are looking to make a difference as part of a multi-award winning business where results are matched with ever greater challenge and reward, this is an opportunity not to be missed. Don’t delay, apply today!
