Job details:
How would we sum it up?
Are you an organised graduate with a flair for design? This is a sales-based role that will encompass elements of social media marketing, e-commerce sales and even logistics, so it’s fantastic for a creative and personable graduate who is looking to experience multiple elements of working in a small business. Working directly alongside the MD in a small team, you will have tonnes of responsibility and the opportunity to work on your own varied projects. The business already has a strong online presence and it will be your job to keep developing this further.

What’s the business all about?
The business is Landscaping Supplies Direct (LSD for short!), a Sheffield-based business that is rapidly becoming one of the UKs leading online suppliers for garden and landscaping supplies. The business caters to a wide range of customers, from independent garden designers to local authorities and the general public. They pride themselves on their high-quality products, their many years of industry experience and their fantastic customer service. The business has embraced the world of online sales/E-commerce, so they already have a strong web presence and strategy, which you will help develop further. The business owners are very well-connected in the Sheffield business community, so as an extra bonus, all employees get staff discount at Bamboo Door – a Hawaiian inspired bar in Sheffield City Centre.
