Nike Factory Store Allocation Manager

Being a part of the Nike Factory Store Allocation team is about more than just shipping product to stores. It's about being a part of how Nike shows up at retail to our consumers. It's about getting product to the consumer when they want it, where they want it and in the right quantity. As an Allocations Manager, you'll be responsible for developing and executing allocation strategies for your category as well as coaching your team to develop strategies for their own categories. You'll be called upon to be an allocation expert, but also responsible in managing a team of Allocation Analysts. As our Allocation Manager, you will coach the team on different methods and approaches to allocation - how to maximize opportunity in a high volume, low capacity door; how to minimize risk while protecting sales in low volume doors; understanding the differences in allocating footwear, apparel and equipment - all in the name of achieving revenue, sell thru and inventory turn goals. This is a role that will require tactical execution, but also challenge you to think strategically, especially in our approach to sizing, high volume styles and high visibility stores. You will be an ambassador for Allocation, working with cross-functional teammates in areas like Supply Chain, Marketplace Operations & Field Leadership to improve our processes and system capabilities. You will partner with Merchandising, Planning and Visual Presentation managers to ensure buying strategies support our allocation and visual merchandising strategies. You'll lead and maintain a motivating work environment as well as take responsibility for Human Resource Planning (HRP), hiring processes, Coaching for Excellence (CFE) and training. You will be tasked with leading and inspiring your team to drive efficiencies and success within the Nike Factory Store business in a team-focused organization. You will be a critical member of the Allocation Leadership team.
