I am a visual Merchandiser at M&S. I work as part of a team to create eye catching displays that meet the M&S’s high standards; I also communicate with management on the shop floor. I have work in women’s wear, windows, men’s wear and kids departments of this store. I can confidently work in any department of the store and do work to a high standard.

I am responsible for the allocation of stock for 100-120 Apricot concessions across the U.K and I style products for the allocators look book. This is a job with a tight deadlines every week and demands a knowledge of trends, being able to make commercial decisions, communicate with many different store managers and staff at all levels and being able to problem solve any queries my concessions may have.
