Careers | Business Development Assistant

Have you ever wondered how the discount retailers manage to stock the well known brands at a bargain price? How the online prices can differ so much to the same product available in stores?

Pricecheck Reception | Old Colliery Way


In the lively and competitive FMCG arena, Pricecheck has long established relationships with many brand owners and major suppliers, sourcing key branded lines which we then sell on to a range of different outlets. We understand business – we buy and sell quality product, whilst understanding the market and getting to know exactly what our customers want. This simple and driven approach has seen us develop trade in over 80 countries as we continue to explore new categories, markets and territories.

And we’re getting it right too – we were awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade, High Growth Business of the Year at the Sheffield Business Awards 2017 and Export Business of the Year in 2015 as well as being recognised in The Sunday Times International Track 200.

We buy and sell thousands of product lines across all FMCG categories – we never know where our next partnership will take us, making for a fast paced, diverse and exciting place to work. As Pricecheck continues to grow, so do our employees and we’re on the lookout for ambitious graduates to join our team.

What you’ll be doing

Working as part of the wider Trading team, you will be helping to identify new opportunities, customers and suppliers to take the business further through thorough research, business feedback and applying your inquisitive approach. Seeing this research through to fruition, you will share your findings with the team to then monitor, accurately record and chase feedback, all managed through our CRM and bespoke account systems.

You will be providing support to the Business Development and Sales teams, especially in activities relating to account management and coordinating relevant updates to the CRM system - producing the resulting management information and reports as required. As your understanding of Pricecheck and our internal systems grows, you will be central in reviewing processes and developing the reporting available, enabling you to see first hand how your efforts are helping to shape the future growth of the company.

You will be a confident networker, attending industry events to gain market insight and in turn, develop into new leads and avenues to explore. As you will be managing your own projects, you will be disciplined, organised and methodical in your approach, which will also be required when coordinating our trade show activity in making travel arrangements, attending show set up and preparing the necessary sales tools for the event.

The role is varied and becomes what you make it – you will be in prime position to learn all about the business and our trading functions, enabling you to be involved in a wide range of activity and in time, focusing on the areas that encourage you to work to your strengths.

How you’ll do it

Following an in depth induction where you will spend time with all areas of the business, you will be working with the fellow Business Development Assistants, Business Development Manager and wider trading team in getting to know our systems, processes, products and industry as part of your on the job training.

Given how varied the role is, you will thrive in a dynamic and ever changing environment, be a natural multi-tasker and be motivated by seeing all the pieces of the puzzle coming together. Your communications will demonstrate confidence and professionalism, all underpinned by an understanding of Pricecheck and an organised, logical and thorough approach.

Initially taking ideas and direction from the Business Development Manager and the Trading Director, you will be responsible for your own projects and manage your time well to ensure timely progress, using your strong computer skills to update progress documentation for submission.

What’s in it for you

Along with a competitive starting salary, you will be enrolled into our pension scheme and also the Westfield health cash plan, with the option to benefit from our childcare voucher and Cycle to Work scheme if that is something that interests you. Given you will learn the product list inside and out, it’s only fair that you can benefit from the staff discount too!

Whilst long established, Pricecheck are continuing to grow and we want a certain kind of person to grow with us too. If you join us with a solid work ethic and clear ambition, you are willing to work hard, push yourself and show enthusiasm, progression opportunities at Pricecheck are a plenty.

The Business Development role is an ideal springboard to other business areas within Pricecheck and we will work with your strengths, talents and interests to offer a fully flexible route to your preferred career.

What we’re looking for

With so much going on, you need to be sharp, smart with an eagerness to learn – we ask for a minimum of a 2:1 degree in any discipline with strong A levels (or the associated equivalent). However, we look for more than just academic achievements of our team. Show us that you have entrepreneurial spirit, an interest in trading and an inquisitive mind - we would love to hear more from you.

You will be a confident communicator and work with clarity, with the tenacity to see ideas through to fruition. You will be an organised and logical thinker, questioning how your findings will benefit the business and making sure that your efforts are well focussed. You will see the importance of attention to detail, yet awareness for the bigger picture.

As we trade internationally, we’re keen to hear from people who have language skills or experience of living and working overseas but these are not essential.
