Buyer | Food and Indirects

We are working with a well established and highly respected group who are looking for an experienced Buyer to join their team. They have a very exciting period coming up with challenges and opportunities alike and they need an experienced Buyer to help them realise this. They are open minded on the background, but they are looking for people with food buying experience as this would translate really well for them. This role is also responsible for buying Packaging and Indirects so it is really broad.

The Job:

You will be working closely with the Head of Buying to really delve into the sourcing of a number of core lines and to ensure that they are bought as effectively as possible.

A majority of the suppliers are based in the UK, so you will need to be visiting them regularly. There are some suppliers based abroad so there is also a strong chance of travel.

The Procurement team work closely with the Planning team, but there is a chance to strengthen internal communications as well.

The Candidate:

A good "professional" procurement background would be an advantage. They are really keen to build some structure to the methods utilised. CIPS would be a distinct advantage.

They are using an ERP system so experience of using some sort of system is useful. They aren't worried about which one as specific training will be given.

This is a hands on role and you will have good levels of autonomy to make quick decisions which will have a real impact on the business.

If this role sounds of interest, please apply below.
