Battersea Dogs & Cats Home | Aug 2020 - Jun 2021

Retail Operations Coordinator

Created a thorough Risk Assessment for our Christmas fulfillment teams and ways of working permitting volunteers to return to site in September. This allowed me to build a successful and expansive seasonal retail volunteer team, nearly 10 times larger than any retail volunteer team before. As a part of this effort, I assembled and presented virtual training, maintained weekly schedules and briefings, and was/am the primary contact for our volunteers. As the primary buyer for our pet supplies, I work with our Canine Behavior and Feline Welfare teams to ensure that we are offering products that meet their high standards and ensure that we maintain the position of expertise that we have fostered for 160 years. As a part of this effort, we have created a "Loved by Battersea" designation for products that are most enthusiastically backed by our expert staff. In addition, this role requires me to monitor and manage supplier relationships, react to recent fluctuations in pricing, product availability and tariffs. This team was then able to put into motion a Christmas order fulfillment system triaging over 9500 orders from 2 channels, fulfilled from stockrooms in 3 locations. This allowed for orders to be uploaded and prepared by employees WFH minimising workload for staff and volunteers on site. It also allowed for optimal Social Distancing for our Volunteers and staff.

Battersea Dogs & Cats Home | Aug 2019 - Aug 2020

Retail & Licensing Coordinator

Since becoming the Retail & Licensing Coordinator, Batteresea's shops and stockrooms have seen their busiest period on record. Last October, we rolled out "Loved by Battersea", a campaign that aligns the product we sell in our shops and online with the expertise of our incredible staff. This project, which is ongoing, ensures that our dogs and cats are outfitted with the best gear to succeed in their new homes. We brought back the Christmas catalogue which was conceived, designed, and fulfilled in-house and exceeded all expectations. I'm pleased to say that I styled all of the product shots in this beautiful catalog and designed the fulfillment procedure as well as oversaw (and assisted) the tiny team of staff and volunteers who assembled and shipped over 800 orders in a short two and a half months. I distributed the Christmas product to all three of our branches and traveled to each to merchandise their shops and readied them for the festive period. I have edited and refined our product database as well as instituted many new stock keeping measures which have resulted in a much more accurate stock count and more precise ordering procedures. I have assisted in the management of off-site events including large scale events such as Crufts and smaller fundraising events. By analyzing the sales results from previous years, I selected targeted product assortments for each event. With this precision and planning, we were able to significantly improve upon previous results. I have created and implemented training plans for incoming volunteers and agency workers and taken on the Brand Licensing new product approvals process acting as a liaison between agencies, designers, and our own Marketing and Brand team.
