Head of Retail - Duty Free and Innovation

Permanent  for Manchester Airport in Manchester

Head of Retail - Duty Free and Innovation

The Manchester Airports Group Ltd

Location – Access to Manchester 2/3 days a week plus extensive UK and overseas travel

Manchester Airports Group (MAG) is the largest UK-owned airport operator, serving 42 million passengers each year through its ownership and operation of Manchester, Stansted, East Midlands and Bournemouth airports.

MAG’s overall strategic intent is to increase long term shareholder value by generating profitable growth, developing its assets and deploying efficient and customer focused operating processes throughout the business.

A successful retail operation is fundamental to achieving this and the Head of Retail for Duty Free and Innovation will play a key role delivering these aims.

Reporting to the Retail Director this is a new role and will assume responsibility for three strands across the retail portfolio: all Duty Free activity - through managing the relationship with MAG’s largest commercial partner World Duty Free; all On-site Advertising; and finally Innovation / New Channel opportunities to drive opportunities outside the current retail offering.

This is a highly interesting and complex role. With a solid understanding of retail gained in a marketing, trading, format development or e-commerce role we are seeking an individual who will have strong commercial skills but also able to couple this with a creative and “blue sky” thinking approach.

Experience will have been gained in either a retailer or a business working hand in hand with a retail client. The successful candidate will be up to date with latest retail innovations and will be able to demonstrate ideas they have initiated that have resulted in outstanding commercial performance.

MAG is a forward thinking, rapidly developing and growing organisation and for further information about this exciting role please submit your CV and covering letter.To apply, click on the 'Apply on company website' button below.
