Application for E-commerce Operations Manager

Dear Hiring Manager,

It is with great enthusiasm that I submit my application for the position of E-commerce Operations Manager with IKEA Denmark. I am a Commercial Operations professional with over 5 years’ experience, I know my diverse skill set and qualifications will make me an asset to IKEA.

As you will see from the attached CV, I’ve built my career in a variety of roles and industries, mostly in international companies such as PANDORA, IKEA, JABRA & VELUX, where I'm used to wearing many hats, and I sincerely enjoy it; I thrive in an environment where no two work days are exactly the same.

In addition to having a commercial and analytical mindset, I have strong IT solutions knowhow, and am a super user in Excel, Powerpoint, various BI/sales systems (Qlikview, Cognos) as well as ERP systems like Navision & AX Dynamics. I like nothing better than diving into data to uncover results, or finding solutions to difficult challenges to improve the business.

On a personal level, I am Australian born, soon to be Danish citizen. I lived in the Australia the first 20 years of my life, before moving to UK to work for a Danish Company, then moved to Denmark 17 years ago when I settled down to married my husband, Together we have two children (11 & 14 years old). I am a native English speaker, fluent in Danish.

In closing, I am thrilled at the possibility of being Operations Manager with IKEA - a company to which which I see is not only an innovative & ambitious company, but one with a social conscience. I would love the opportunity to meet with you and discuss the value that I can bring to IKEA and I appreciate your consideration and look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,

Mary Parker

Position Overview:

E-commerce Operations Manager

As the job title advises, these professionals spend most of their time on the management of various E-commerce functions and activities. Besides that, they are also often in charge of the development and implementation of new E-commerce processes and procedures in order to increase the company's sales. Their other duties include recruitment of new personnel, support of the company's executives, creation of original advertising campaigns, etc. Therefore, previous leadership experience is usually required of them. On top of that, they should also have extensive knowledge of not only eCommerce but other fields like marketing, sales, and business development as well. The university degree is, in most cases, not mandatory but might be a big plus.

Company Overview:

Often described as a "heaven for stylish and affordable home goods" IKEA belongs to the small group of the biggest retail companies in the world. With a revenue of more than €37.05 billion and over 211,000 employees, it has been producing ready-to-assemble furniture since 1943. Speaking of what's really like to work there, IKEA has been ranked as one of the top 20 employees, not only in Scandinavia but internationally as well. They offer great benefits and fair pay and you'll also have a chance to experience work in other departments. On the other hand, as it's such a huge company, there is a lot of politics involved and making any change or innovation in the workplace might take a lot of time and effort. The eCommerce Operations Managers at IKEA earn $76,971 in the United States on average.
