Produce Buyer | Large Business | Lincolnshire
We are currently working on an excellent opportunity for someone to join a well-established and highly regarded food manufacturing business. They are currently looking for a Fresh Produce Buyer to join their team and help them ensure they deliver their promises to customers. This is a great opportunity for someone who is looking to progress their career as there will be opportunities in time to develop within the business.

Continually exploring and developing new sources, to ensure you have a number of options to combat yearly supply challenges.
Alongside the Senior Procurement team, you will be contributing to the overall procurement strategy for the business through your day to day knowledge of the suppliers and challenges that are often faced.
You will be liaising directly with a number of key stakeholders, ensuring everyone has the relevant information that they need going forward.
You will either be an experienced Buyer looking to make a sideways move which will allow for future progression, or you will be a Junior Buyer looking to make your next step up.
Experience in fresh produce procurement will be a distinct advantage and understanding the supply chains that come with it.
You will be in a good position to positively affect supplier relationships, so the ability to be a persuasive influencer will be a good skill to have.
