  • Regularly audit the website to challenge merchandising assumptions and measure any changes made
  • Use data to better understand our customers, and take action to improve their on-site experience
  • Communicate data findings to our content teams, signposting where copy, imagery or video could be altered to improve online sales

What are your ideal personality and qualifications? 

  • Highly numerate, with good spreadsheet abilities. You’ll be a data superhero who can make sense of all manner of information
  • Tech-savvy and willing to embrace new and emerging technologies
  • Keen interest in ecommerce, with strong opinions on what makes a good website experience
  • Good attention to detail
  • Pro-active, can-do approach
