You’re a recent graduate keen to jump into a role that will challenge you and help you to develop your skillset. You’re excited at the opportunity to organise and coordinate multiple projects.

What you’ll be doing as Graduate Project Coordinator:

  • Researching major competitors and brands to keep track of trends and see new product opportunities
  • Working with the product and account management team, creating exciting new product rage plan lists that match the seasons.
  • Checking the documented pathway to see where you are in the project, and speak to relevant internal team members to update them on the progress of the project
  • Gaining a clear understanding of how products will be shown in stores, and then create the merchandised layouts for customers.
  • Testing and evaluating the products you create in terms of suitability of packaging, and ensuring products fit the brief
  • Managing all samples for each project.
  • Some reporting, benchmarking value, gap reviews, and customer performance
  • A little bit of admin along the way, creating job sheets with all the project details, and tracking the costing sheets.
  • Throughout all of this, you’ll be helping out some fantastic and well-known customers with any queries they have

What’s in it for you?

You’ll get to work with some wonderful products, with licenced brands such as Disney, Harry Potter, Joules and many more. You’ll have a clear career trajectory in front of you and be learning from professionals in the industry.

Minimum requirements:

  • Recently graduated in a relevant subject area such as Business Management, Marketing or Product Design.
  • Driving licence as this is a tricky place to get to on public transport

  • Medicash plan to support health and well-being
  • Free parking
