Buyer | Fresh Produce | £DOE
We are working with a highly regarded and very successful fresh produce business who are looking to strengthen their team with the appointment of a Fruit Buyer. They are looking for someone with a good starting background in procurement, ideally with some experience of sourcing fruit from overseas. There is a real opportunity to develop with the business as they have some ambitious plans.
The Role of Buyer:
You will be a key part of the link between the commercial and buying teams, ensuring there is a joint up approach to everything the business does.
There will be ample opportunities to visit a range of growers around the world, to ensure you have a really in depth understanding of how they work and the challenges they face.
On occasion, you will be assisting the commercial teams with their customer contacts as well, ensuring you can provide a steer on forecasts for supply.
They are open minded on the level that someone comes in at. Ideally, they are looking for someone they can develop, who has some buying experience, but still more to learn. But they are willing to consider more people with more buying experience if they can bring specific product knowledge.
Spanish language would be a distinct advantage, but isn't essential.
You will be numerate and be used to coping with a varying and constantly shifting work load.
Must be able to travel international as required.
