As a Graduate Purchasing Trainee you will liaise and negotiate with suppliers whilst providing clients and customers with a great service.

To ensure your success in the role you will receive bespoke mentoring and training from a very successful manager of the company's Chesham location. If you prove yourself, you will also have the chance to progress. You will gain autonomy and have a much higher earning potential.

Many of their managers initially started their career as trainees and now run their own business within the group - earning impressive salaries and generous bonuses.

If you're a proactive and business-minded graduate with excellent communication skills we want to hear from you. Think you have what it takes? Don't miss out, apply today!
