Senior Buyer

Posted 21 September by Distinct Recruitment

OVERVIEW

This business continues to grow and boasts an exciting future. With sites across the UK, the company is well known in the East Midlands. Due to progression within one of their purchasing teams, we are looking to recruit a Senior Buyer to work in this fast paced and challenging environment.

THE ROLE & RESPONSIBILITIES

Not every role allows an individual to take complete control of their area and make their own decisions which can often be a frustration. Working for this business, although you will have guidance and support, you will manage your own areas of spend that could include food, non-food, ingredients and packaging. Sourcing and negotiating with suppliers, working with NPD and managing cost will be an integral part of the position. No two days will be the same. You will need to have a good sense of humour to deal with any challenges but will work as part of a close knit team.

REQUIREMENTS

You will have a broad background in purchasing in as much as you will have been involved with "end to end" purchasing. Ideally that experience will have been gained working for a business who supply in Retail but this is not essential. Moreover, you will have the ability to manage your own workload, be able to work with initiative and be ready for a challenge. Please apply now to hear more about this excellent opportunity.

Required skills

  • Food Manufacturing
  • Purchasing
