Digital Merchandising Assistant - Edinburgh (EH12)- 9261

Our client is based in the South of Edinburgh at the Gyle and has achieved strong growth over recent years, supplying premium snow, surf and outdoor products to our global customer base. This is a fast paced energetic forward thinking organisation and to support the next stage of expansion they are looking to bring on board an Inventory Administrator Apprentice. A young, fun and vibrant organization who are passionate about skiing, snowboarding and outdoor sports.Freeze was born during this radical skiing revival. Selling his first set of skis from his Edinburgh garage in the winter of 1999, Neil Mitchel founded what was to become the first shop in the world to exclusively cater to the free ski culture. No racing, no moguls, no Nordic and certainly no lycra, just Freeski. The first shop opened its doors a few months later in 2000. Freeze soon became the go-to shop for a thriving community of local skiers and snowboarders.

All across the UK, we sponsored riders, events, clubs and even had a big branded pick-up truck, all in a bid to share our stoke for the skiing and snowboarding culture with as many like-minded people as possible. Over the next 20 years, Freeze has grown from strength to strength. Four shops and three warehouses later. Our product offering has expanded to include surf, outdoor and wake. Freeze was founded around a principle that with the right gear, paired with the right knowledge we can empower a community and share our passion and culture. A local shop for the whole world.
