Job Description

A food ingredients company with an international presence and a brilliant growing reputation, our client is making waves in the food industry. Supplying a broad range of manufacturers across the food & beverage market, the company offers a diverse portfolio of ingredients, allowing itself to offer value-added bespoke solutions to its customer base. The business is seeking an experienced Ingredients Buyer.

You will:

  • Work with suppliers across Europe to obtain your requirements on the very best terms
  • Liaise with the NPD team to understand their requirements, suggesting alternatives to challenge the norm
  • Look at existing products to ensure that the company is moving with the times, never assuming that what was the best solution 12 months ago is still best now
  • Suggest to whom the company could sell surplus stock, if necessary

We need:

  • Experience of the specialised ingredients market - exposure to at least some of: preservatives, flavours, emulsifiers, stabilisers
  • Examples of having negotiated win-win deals
  • Evidence of knowing your way around European suppliers - you'll be guiding the company so you must have done something similar previously

This company is expanding, and is undergoing a major growth programme that has created a real buzz across the business. If you want to be part of something special, where you can feel the energy as soon as you walk through the doors, then we'd love to hear from 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.
