Job description

About The Role
We are currently recruiting for a Category Design Manager based at our head office in West Yorkshire. 
 
If you have broad experience across a variety of product categories, this is an exciting opportunity to take the strategic lead with design direction across our Home and Seasonal categories.
 
Reporting directly to our Category Director for Home and Leisure, you’ll identify trends and co-ordinate the development of stylish ranges to meet the needs of millions of customers. With the flexibility to travel internationally, you’ll keep us one step ahead of the latest product and design trends by attending trend fairs and going on inspirational trips and product selection trips. Working with trend agencies, you’ll provide our buying teams with style guides, surface patterns and colour schemes for product ranges, ensuring consistency with buyers across different categories.
 
This senior management role will involve working commercially with factories and sourcing and buying teams to build innovative product ranges. Juggling range developments and quickly adapting to what does and doesn’t work, you’ll identify gaps, shape the future direction of our ranges and hit growth targets. Given the autonomy to put smarter processes in place, your design direction and insight into the latest trends will make sure our home and seasonal products fly off the shelves.
About You
Someone who has taken ownership for strategic design direction at a major retailer or supermarket, you must understand how to shape better ways of working between UK buying teams and sourcing offices in the Far East. With some Home & Leisure experience and knowledge of product design and sourcing and development in the Far East, you should also have a passion for creative styling through visual merchandising and marketing asset creation.
About The Company
Our colleagues make Morrisons. So, we offer excellent training and opportunities for career

progression. You can also look forward to all kinds of perks, including a generous bonus
scheme, great pension contribution, car allowance, flexible benefits like childcare vouchers and
discount cards for you and your family and friends.
