This vacancy has now closed.
Have you ever wondered how the discount retailers manage to stock the well known brands at a bargain price? How the online prices can differ so much to the same product available in stores?
In the lively and competitive clearance market, Pricecheck has long established relationships with many major manufacturers and brand owners, sourcing quality product which we then sell on to a range of different outlets. We are traders – we buy and sell quality product, whilst understanding the market and getting to know exactly what our customers want. This simple and driven approach has seen us develop trade in over 75 countries as we continue to explore new categories, markets and territories.
And we’re getting it right too – we were awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade, High Growth Business of the Year at the Sheffield Business Awards 2017 and Export Business of the Year in 2015 as well as being recognised in The Sunday Times International Track 200.
We buy thousands of product lines from hundreds of suppliers – we never know where the next deal will take us, making for a fast paced, ever changing and exciting place to work and we’re on the lookout for graduates to join our team.
Reporting into the IT Manager, you will be part of the team supporting a busy trading business and assisting in the development of ongoing technologies.
Whilst there is no thing as a typical day, your duties will range from supporting users and maintaining established systems, to developing new programmes and helping to build new business solutions. You will be confident in designing and updating SQL reports and work closely with the IT Manager to enhance bespoke systems using Microsoft and IOS technologies. You will learn the skills to identify where technology can enhance rather than restrict a business and work through the build, test and implementation phases of IT related projects. You will be liaising with other departments throughout the organisation to integrate IT solutions and provide varied assistance and support, gaining an appreciation that IT is much more than just computer screens and keyboards.
You will be a confident communicator and work with clarity, with the tenacity to see activity through to timely completion. You will be an organised and logical thinker, operating at pace and under pressure, whilst not sacrificing quality, accuracy and customer service. You will see the importance of attention to detail, yet awareness for the bigger picture and be keen to understand how business works in practice.
|Skills & experience||
Whilst there will be plenty of training available and scope for self-development, knowledge and experience in HTML, CSS, Java Script, SSIS/SRS/SSAS, Objective C or Swift, PHP, Active Directory and Photoshop would be desirable.
|Degree:||With so much going on, you need to be sharp, smart with an eagerness to learn – we ask for a minimum of a 2:1 classification in any Computing related degree with strong A levels (or the associated equivalent). However, we look for more than just academic achievements of our team. Show us that you have a real interest in business and a forward thinking approach to technology - we would love to hear more from you.|
