The successful candidate will also provide product training and support to sales personnel to facilitate the effective promotion of products.

Wow is looking for someone with strong analytical skills, who can take onboard complex information, process it quickly and present it back clearly and simply.

WOW believes that the best pre-school toys do not need batteries. Its products are distributed across the UK and in 35 countries via its strategic distribution partners. The aim is to reach 60 countries by 2012.
