Product Information Assistant with possible development to Assistant Product Manager

This has become a pivotal role within many businesses where the development of internet trading, Business to Consumer trading (B2C) and electronic data exchange between customers, suppliers and sellers has become an essential part of everyday activity for modern companies.

You will have total responsibility to gather data for each of our products, supplied by our parent company, or by suppliers and to pull this information together in a useable and robust format so it can be manipulated into a bespoke Product Information System that you will help to create for Lecico plc. The system that you create will then be used to feed back out into our website, our customers websites, their own databases or EPOS systems – in fact your work will probably impact on every single facet of our internal and external business operations.

As a result of your efforts, we will be able to produce data sheets, update the website, improve our brochures and our e-trading.

Reporting to the Senior Product Manager, you will need to be able to handle data via multiple sources so good computer skills across a variety of platforms is essential, although specific training on the Lecico systems will obviously be given to you. Accuracy and attention to detail is crucial, as you will be handling data from over a thousand products. In addition, you need to understand the importance of the digital platforms and the changing face of electronic trading so an interest in websites and e-tailing would be a real advantage.

Progression to Assistant Product Manager

It is likely that the creation of an effective Product Information Management system will take 9-12 months, during which time you will have gained a deep understanding of the Lecico product range and having worked for the Snr Product Manager you may have been given a growing involvement in the management of some of the new products/sourcing/development of new product areas.

Once the PIMS is in place we would hope that you would be ready to develop your career further as Assistant Product Manager. This role would be a developmental one and assuming that you are successful would lead on to full product manager status.

The likely candidate

Of graduate calibre you will probably be finishing tertiary education either from university or college. You will have a practical mindset, interested by how things work and how you can improve them. Knowledgeable with the basic computer programmes of Excel/Word/Powerpoint etc you may have had exposure to more creative systems either through study or just your own self-started interests.

Willing and wanting to be developed into a career of buying/product management/marketing we will give you the training and support to get your career off to a flying start with genuine hands-on experience and responsibilities.

The company

Lecico is one of the worlds largest producers of domestic and commercial sanitaryware for bathroom products used in our homes, hospitals, hotels and many other locations. Manufactured in factories in Egypt, we also source bathroom products from China and mainland Europe. The UK business is focussed on selling into the UK market only at present and you would be based out of the Bedford site. If progressing to Assistant Product Manager, UK travel would be expected and potentially overseas travel if required.

"We asked out team to tell us what Lecico means to them. The result is our new wall art in the office! It demonstrates who we are at Lecico and what we believe in. Of course it wouldn't be Lecico if we didn't throw in a few products for good measure! 😉🚽 "
