    Responsibilities

    Assistant Merchant

     

    Do you love everything fashion, have an eye for the latest trends, and an insatiable curiosity?

     

    If you answered yes to all of these questions, you should seriously consider a merchandising career at Express.

     

    As an Assistant, you will be part of a cross functional team that works together to bring brand right product to stores that our customers love to buy. You’ll work with other Merchants, Designers, Planners, and Production partners (to name a few) to make this happen. 

     

    Assistants get regular exposure to our most senior leaders and have the opportunity to make a direct impact on our bottom line.  After all, we are a merchant driven business. 

     

    And did we mention the career path?  Great Assistants can become Associates, who become Merchants, who become Sr. Merchants, and so on.  You’ll get leadership experience and development opportunities along the way as you build your career. 

     

    Is it 100% glamorous?  TBH, no.  You will be expected to do some data entry, manage and organize samples, help prep for meetings, etc.  But when you get to do all of that within a great team and for a great company, what’s not to love?

     

    There are a few things we need you to bring to the table:

     

    - Bachelor’s degree in Fashion Merchandising or a related degree; or the equivalent experience; previous merchandising internship(s) is a huge plus

    - Care and concern for accuracy, organization and details

    - Top notch communication skills – both written and verbal

    - Strong analytical and problem-solving skills

    - Computer savviness, especially with Microsoft Office Applications

     

    We look forward to connecting with you!  If you know friends who would be a great fit – please spread the word.
