As an Assistant Merchandiser for Boohoo, you’ll have an eye for detail and being analytical is at the forefront of everything you do. Within the role at Boohoo, you’ll be responsible for using relevant data to ensure the sales are optimised for your department. You’ll support the planning of budgets and work closely with our Senior Merchandisers to make impactful decisions across our global platform.

We live and breathe data, trends and fashion. Our vision is clear: we want to be the global market leader, always first to market. We push boundaries and never get stuck in old habits. Without us, the Group wouldn’t be able to keep up with stock levels and demand. Our customers want their wardrobe to be on-trend, and they want it now, so we work with Buying to analyse performance, predict what customers want and what will sell and then make it happen.
