This morning the face of merchandising here at Create and Craft HQ is in the hot seat!
Chelsea Sissons our Canadian number ninja, tell us about your role?..
I manage the team that gets the right amount of stock in at the right time.
What is the most challenging part of your role?
Because we have new launches every single day, we work at an incredibly fast pace. No retailer is like us, we manage over 5000 new product launches a year!!
What piece of advice would you give someone starting a career in retail merchandising?
You need to love numbers, have an understanding and a passion for the product and think of it as fun accounting with new exciting products!
And finally, give us 3 fun facts about yourself?
1) I am a keen sewer and I love my Brother FS130
2) I tried papercrafting for the first time last month when decorating my nursery (Baby number 1 coming soon!)
3) I love visits to Cornwall with my husband and our scruffy Jack Russell Harley
