Melbicks Garden Centre, Birmingham

40 Hours per week, Full Time/Permanent Position

We are actively looking to recruit an experienced and energetic Stock Control Manager at our newly acquired Melbicks Garden Centre.

As Stock Control Manager you are the centre’s first point of contact for all queries relating to stock control. You will continually monitor all stock control processes in store including goods-in, till operations, stock takes, wastage, stock ordering and stock level accuracy, and take any necessary action to resolve any issues.

You will work closely with department heads and the centre manager to ensure that all these processes are adhered to correctly, timely and accurately. With over 50,000 SKUs you will clearly not be able to manage all stock processes yourself so training and coaching is a key element of this role as you would need to ensure that all relevant centre staff and managers are fully conversant with all systems and process relating to stock management.

To be successful as Stock Control Manager you will need to have experience of working in a stock management role ideally from within a large retail environment. Working with numbers will be second nature to you and you will have great problem solving and investigative skills. You will have excellent IT skills especially in Excel. You will have an energetic personality with a positive can-do attitude and a natural ability to engage, inspire and coach your colleagues around you.

Melbicks joined the Blue Diamond Group in August 2018 and we have ambitious plans for this centre with planned investment to develop and improve the retail offering to our customers, so this is a unique opportunity to join this centre at the start of an exciting journey!
