LoveCrafts is hiring a

Planning & Insights Analyst

London, United Kingdom

About us

Our vision at LoveCrafts is to create an entirely new platform for the global maker community - one craft at a time. We launched our first site, four years ago - early success led to funding from one of Europe's leading venture investors, and we haven't looked back since.

As we set out to converge traditional crafts with the digital age we are looking for exceptional talent to help us disrupt and innovate in this large, fragmented and fast-growing sector. We're playing with the very best in web, mobile, social, commerce and media technology in our quest to build a unique social network and e-commerce platform across multiple craft verticals.

Our team is smart, kind and slightly kooky with talent that is insatiably curious and supremely ambitious. We hire and nurture inquisitive, creative minds looking to flourish in a supportive and collaborative environment that includes social and e-commerce stalwarts hailing from the likes of Yahoo!, Amazon, eBay, Pinterest and Rocket Internet.

The opportunity

We want to provide the best possible experience for makers around the world, and you would be the champion in charge of making that happen for our UK, Ireland and Rest of World customers. As part of our Planning & Insights Team, you would help us understand exactly what our UK, Ireland and ROW customers need and tailor our onsite experience to make sure that we delight them every time they visit us. You will keep a close eye on sales and trading performance to make sure that we are getting it right. This is a very collaborative role, requiring lots of coordination across the Marketing and Retail teams.


If you have a passion for strategy and detailed execution, know how to read a P&L to tell a compelling story and make an action plan, and love working with a lot of teams to get a job done… then we can’t wait to meet you!

Trading performance

  • Monitor and analyse trading performance every day, and use that analysis to develop actual, real-world changes to address any issues.

Marketing planning

  • Plan the marketing calendar for the UK, Ireland and ROW markets, covering all promotional and seasonal activity.
  • Constantly monitor and analyse the performance of our promotions so that we can continue to perfect our offering and make real-time changes to the calendar to meet targets.

  • Serve as the UK, Ireland and ROW consultant for all other areas of the business


Experience and skills
