Inplace Cosmetics Merchandiser Jenny Tomlinson talks about her job role, makeup and her love for anything that sparkles

I started working in Inplace Cosmetics in April 2012 after a career change. I started off working on reception in the office. I found this to be invaluable. Learning quickly I got to grips with all aspects of the work Inplace completes, from Tester calls, Maintenance, Parts requests, and general enquiries.

I loved the attention to detail and the wealth of information the merchandising projects were able to give the client in just over a week.

After 13 years being a Beauty Therapist, I have a severe eye for detail and I’m able to go through the merchandiser’s photographs and reports, finding missing parts and problems with the stands etc, making sure these issues are completed.
