By recommending where to open stores and analysing catchment data to make informed recommendations, you will play a key part in our ambitious growth plans.

Working closely with the Property Acquisitions and Feasibility teams you will own a regional area and develop and maintain an achievable location strategy for every town in the UK, visiting areas across the country (you could be in the heart of Birmingham city centre one day and the Peak District the next)! 

You will be responsible for

  • Analysing location data to make recommendations to Property and Business, collaborating with all of our amazing colleagues in Customer Insight, SRM and Channels.

You will have an inquisitive and curious mind to analyse location data and whilst all experience will be considered (not just Geography, Economics, Maths degrees) we ask that you have a willingness to learn and a keen interest in numbers and maps.

The successful candidate will hold a driving licence and whilst the role can be regionally based, we are particularly interested in candidates based in the North-West, Midlands or Scotland
