Brilliant opportunity for a commercially focussed Buyer with previous food industry experience.

If you're a switched-on and commercially driven Buyer this is a great opportunity to get your foot in the door of a leading multi-site FMCG business. A multinational business, they produce huge numbers of innovative products on a weekly basis for all of the major retailers. Product quality and innovation are core values and they strive for the best in each. With clearly mapped out career paths and progression, this business is seen as an employer of choice when it comes to advancing your career.

Joining the business as a Buyer, you will be responsible for managing the purchasing of ingredients and packaging for this incredibly busy site. You'll ensure that the business' supply costs and exposure to risk are minimised, whilst supplier performance is maximised. It will be important for the Buyer to provide purchasing expertise to the wider business, managing site specific costs on all ingredients and packaging, as well as taking on a group wide category for the wider business. NPD is a big area for the business so a key part of the role will be sourcing new suppliers and feeding knowledge and market data back into the business.

You will have previous Buying (ideally food) experience, have a 'hungry' attitude and a 'can do' approach. Your influencing and interpersonal skills will be excellent and you will have advanced level Excel skills and be confident creating and using macros. With an excellent professional manner you'll be confident and professional when meeting up with suppliers.

This is a great role offering loads of scope for progression within the busy family oriented business.
