Job description

Active Cosmetics Division has enjoyed double digit growth for 10 years
and now contributes 12% of L'Oréal UKI numbers, consistently delivering 50%+
contribution to growth over the last 3 years. In 2020 we are currently the only
division in the UK and in Europe who can boast performance of +24% to budget
year to date and +39% year on year. All this has not happened by luck alone, we
were already tracking considerably ahead on our e-commerce participation (was
28% in 2019) which gave us the springboard to rocket this channel way beyond
our target when COVID hit (currently tracking at 50% year to date). The good
news doesn't stop there, we were the only brands to keep promotional activity
on sun in Boots and our Superdrug store distribution has continued to expand
even during lockdown enabling positive performance despite very challenging
circumstances We are obsessed about the integrity of our brands which are co-developed, recommended and prescribed by health
professionals, including dermatologists, paediatricians, cosmetic doctors and
pharmacists around the world. There is plenty of further opportunity to grow
through unlocking new consumers and new distribution, but the long-term success
of our brands will come from doing this carefully, maintaining our category
