Country Lead Retail Vendor Recruitment, UK

Amazon

London, United Kingdom

DESCRIPTION

The Retail Vendor Recruitment (RVR) team on-boards vendors in order to drive selection growth for the EU Retail business. While we are currently focused on small to medium-sized companies within Hardlines and Consumables, we intend to expand our services and over time evolve into a centralized, scalable on-boarding function for Retail overall. In order to get there we will have to demonstrate that we raise the bar on on-boarding excellence – which will require a sustained and dedicated effort by every single RVR country team.

As a result, managing the UK team of more than 30 Vendor Managers and Team Leads requires a leader with a strong sense of ownership and sharp business acumen. He or she will demonstrate above-average skills on multiple dimensions: energizing large teams, building relationships across a highly matrixed organization, negotiating commercial terms, analyzing complex data sets and managing multiple responsibilities within a fast-paced environment. He or she acts as an owner and coach who is determined to build a team of leaders.

· Collaborate with Finance on Operational Planning processes.
· Report on selection growth and other key metrics to senior Retail stakeholders.
· Provide strategic guidance to team members and stakeholders alike.
