My client are a leading global Distributor, established in 1985 and have since grown to hundreds of employees worldwide.
As trusted partners for many of the UK’s largest and most respected National Automotive Companies, they have built a culture on the foundation of collaboration, trust, transparency, and accountability.
They are dedicated to creating an environment where their team, partners, and customers can grow and thrive through product and distribution excellence. They currently hold 13 strategically located distribution centres worldwide: nine in the United States, three in Canada, and two in the United Kingdom, one of them being in Norwich where this exciting new role is available.
As a business that is passionate about servicing their customer and supplier partners to help them achieve rapid growth in their markets, they are now expanding into the world of ecommerce and need an eCommerce specialist to come aboard and be part of this exciting chapter.   With a customer base that has grown significantly over the past few years, it can only continue its success by improving its online platform.
As an eCommerce Specialist, you will get to do more than just monitor sales of a product. You will work cross-departmentally, reporting to the head of sales and digital solutions, to optimize eCommerce strategies and analyse where there is room for improvement.
Who are you?
You’ll possess a strong knowledge of the eCommerce space including competitive strategies, digital marketing strategies, product development, consumer research, usability best practices and industry trends to drive profitable sales growth. 
A minimum of 2 years ecommerce experience is required, coupled with a strong commercial mindset and customer first approach.  Its goes without saying that you’ll have excellent data and analytics skills, with confident use of Excel to manipulate data into meaningful insight. Experience in using Google Analytics is essential and experience in organising digital marketing campaigns ( google ad words, external 3rd party websites, email marketing etc.) is desirable.
As a business that is determined to retain that culture, especially as they continue to grow, it would be expected that you feel as passionate about living those values as they do.
The role will be 90% office based for the first 6 months, with flexibility after that period is finished.
If you want to work for a business that still retains the feel, style & culture of a small pragmatic business and where everyone at all levels realises the importance in going the extra mile and doing “whatever it takes” then this could be the role for you.
