Job Description

The envy of so many, our client is an instantly recognised national retailer that encourages innovation, enthusiasm, entrepreneurialism and excellence. Offering a range of high quality food products, its name is synonymous with quality in the food industry. As the team continues to expand we are looking for the very best Buyers out there to join this company in its quest to satisfy its customers, all day, every day.

Commercial, commercial, commercial. That's the attribute that you'll need to demonstrate in abundance if you're to be successful here. Our client wants to see evidence of what you've delivered and how you've done that, so be prepared to talk about how you've built supplier relationships, how you've set range strategies, how you've complied with any legal restraints, and how you've improved efficiencies. If you can impress with all of these, showing your commercial acumen on every point, then we want to hear from you!

It goes without saying that solid buying experience in the food industry is a must-have - and experience of working for a retailer would be extremely beneficial. What category you've focused on within food isn't important, this is much more about what skills you can bring, not who you know.

In return for your hard work, our client is renowned for offering industry-leading remuneration packages and an incredible working environment. If you want to be surrounded by passionate people who work together to achieve things that you can look back on with a sense of glowing pride, then this is the place for you.

Whilst we would like to respond to all our on-line applicants, regrettably we are unable to do so due to the high volumes we receive. If you've not heard from us within two weeks, unfortunately on this occasion your application has been unsuccessful.
