Macildowie Marketing are working with a well known mail order company based in Leicester who have a wide product range available via catalogue and e-commerce channels. The Catalogue Production & Content Management Assistant will join a wider marketing team dedicated to producing literature ranging from catalogues to flyers and across multiple websites servicing both B2C and B2B customers. This is a maternity cover position set to commence in May 2017.
You will be working within a team responsible for all catalogue production and marketing product data for both print and web channels and take part in catalogue planning meetings and interpreting instructions so some creative understanding, especially of catalogue page layout would be an advantage.
On a daily basis you'll be collating and editing data, entering it into the CMS, linking images, checking and creating products, item groups, pages and sections based upon a supplied page brief. You will also be checking catalogue spreads against Agility, proofing and doing the daily administration required during catalogue production. This includes maintaining project tracking spreadsheets and working with staff from across the business so an ability to engage with people at all levels is vital. You will be capable of high volume proofing- online using Proof HQ and on paper - for long periods of time so attention to detail and superb concentration is a must.
There is no design experience required as all of the page design is done by an agency. Your role is to supply them with the correct data and images and check their output. You will be working closely with them so experience of dealing with agencies would be an advantage.
An ability to use Excel to an Intermediate level is vital as is a real data brain. You will be doing everything from simple manual data entry to running Agility SQL queries to writing Pentaho SQL transformations to download, manipulate and upload data.
You will have to interpret product amends from across the business, verbal or written, so will need a good commercial understanding so you can ask the right questions and make the right decisions.
You will also be working closely with the Web Content team and sharing that workload at times. An understanding of web content management systems such as Magento Enterprise would therefore be an advantage.
-Experience of catalogue production would be a huge advantage
-Attention to detail is crucial and you will be the sort of person who spots typos in magazines and newspapers
-A passion for data manipulation
-Experience using agility PIM or a similar system
-The ability to work under pressure and to tight deadlines
This is not a 'data entry' type role but rather a content creation and manipulation role which will require a logical and process-driven person, with a meticulous mind set, who is able to deliver high quality work to tight deadlines. This role is ideally suited to a perfectionist with a healthy dose of perspective!
