Are You Ready to Make It Happen at Mondelēz International?

How you will contribute

As the Space Management Expert, you will translate shopper research/insights into best-in-class shelving & merchandising principles with different lenses:

  • At a Holistic level followed by key classes of trade – value, grocery, club, drug, mass, & C-store
  • In-Store locations: Main Shelf, Displays, Category End Caps, Front End, and Alternate Locations
  • Omnichannel: How does the above translate to flex fulfilment & pure online shopping?

As the Space Management Expert, you should be able to provide tactical guidelines to Category Advisors and Shelf Management Specialists who are operating as part of a Field Customer Team. Having been in their shoes previously, you should be able to empathize with their short-term needs while wearing a long-term hat as you consult with Field Customer Teams.

Since you’re leading this Space Management Team, you should be able to proactively build case studies based on what you’re seeing happening within key Field Customer accounts. The goal is embrace a “lift and re-apply” COE learn to teach mindset so you can codify on-the-ground learnings based on providing Field Customer Team support, build case studies, and broadcast broadly so other Field Customer Accounts can listen, learn, and re-apply in their own spheres of influence.

This Space Management Leader will also have the responsibility of leading MDLZ’s Proprietary Perfect Town initiative (details during interview) where the Shelving Principles can be implemented in a real-time basis to understand true impact and leverage real time behaviors to inform unknown insight gaps. As such, it’s critical to have an individual with design thinking background, a passion toward creative problem solving, and someone who thrives in ambiguity.

  • Has worked within at least 2, ideally 3, Customer/Retailer Teams and have contributed to and shares responsibility for meeting the Team’s volume targets.
  • Managed all activities relating to optimizing assortment and shelf management with Retail Customers. Examples would include: store clustering/segmentation, participation in advanced plan-o-gram technologies (i.e. Galleria), Red Dot and Test & Learn. 
  • Have provided category management support to sophisticated Retail Customers, i.e., you must have gone beyond simply executing assortment and shelf management guidelines. You should have clear context of category management, shelf productivity and effectiveness, space allocation based on KPS (revenue/days of supply/ROI), & analysis cum resolution of out of stocks, assortment analysis leading to optimal share of shelf, improved positioning, and best variety.
  • Seasoned expert on all field sales space management technology, its applications, & have established shelving principles and standards in previous work experience.
