Are you looking for a new challenge in a fast-paced, diverse and rewarding team environment? 

We at CCF have a fantastic opportunity for a Commercial Assistant to join our Commercial Team. This varied role will provide a mix of administrative support and project analysis to the Category Manager, liaising with both our suppliers and operational colleagues on a daily basis. This role provides a great first step into a career in category management.

What you’ll do
As a Commercial Assistant, you will be supporting the Category Managers to help deliver the CCF and wider business strategies, whilst also providing essential daily support to our branch teams. Your day-to-day responsibilities will include:

  • Supporting branches by ensuring system accuracy, timely responses to branch requests, and providing a frontline contact for branch colleagues as required
  • Producing reports and ensuring accurate data is provided to help understand the trading performance of our categories and customers and therefore any action required

Keeping the customer at the heart of what we do is key, so a completely customer focused attitude is crucial. As part of a hard working and friendly team, you will need the confidence to build relationships, be prepared to work at pace and most of all not be afraid to get stuck in.

What’s in it for you?
You’ll be supported by some of the best training & development in the industry, our impressive internal succession programme means whatever it is you do with us, it will be easy for you to learn, grow and develop across the Travis Perkins Group.
