Merchandise Planners - It's a fantastic time to join our business.  Kmart are growing and with plans to double the growth of this category (Luggage), we need an amazing Planner to deliver on this strategy.

Based at our Head Office in Mulgrave and reporting into an extremely talented Planning Manager who demonstrates outstanding leadership qualities, you will be responsible for the following:

  • deliver key profit objectives through innovation, customer orientation, inventory management and analysis
  • work in partnership with your buyer and the broader team
  • be a significant contributor in executing the strategy
  • trade your business to maximise every opportunity and minimise risks
  • control a significant Open to Buy
  • forecast stock requirements to maximise revenue, margin and stock turn performance

As an experienced Merchandise Planner, you will have a solid knowledge base, an inquisitive and commercial mind and enjoy knowledge sharing. Working collaboratively is your preferred style but you are comfortable owning and being accountable for your business and decision making.

Driven to succeed, you have demonstrated business acumen and can demonstrate exceptional commercial results; excel in forecasting, interpreting market trends and executing strategic trading plans to exceed targets and deliver growth. 

You are a well-regarded trader, strong communicator and influencer, with a proactive approach. Strong computer literacy, including proficiency in Excel is essential.

Our Merchandise team are instrumental to our continued success and delighting our customers every day. We are a huge volume retailer and we do things a little differently around here- we'll support you in learning the Kmart way but we will give you the accountability and ownership you crave. Kmart is a company that will give you the opportunity to gain experience outside of your comfort zone, where you can develop professionally and truly own your career!

We pride ourselves on being a values led organisation and believe that integrity,  team work & customer service drives our success. Our culture is fun, positive, honest and professional. We treat each other equally, with respect and we like to keep things simple.

We operate at a fast pace, are highly results focussed and work collaboratively to drive the continued success of our business ensuring we delight our customers every day!

You will be afforded autonomy and accountability in your role and have access to development opportunities across both Kmart and the Wesfarmers Group, excellent remuneration, an uncapped bonus scheme & access to Wesfarmers share plan (both for eligible team members), free parking and benefits program including a discount card for many of the Wesfarmers businesses.

So if this sounds like the perfect role for you – apply now!

At Kmart we aim to ensure our teams reflect the diversity of the communities in which we operate.
