Buying Controller – Fresh Produce
Our client is a leading light in the wholesale and convenience channel with several hundred of their own symbol group independently owned shops on the street corners of towns and cities throughout the country. A recent injection of capital from the parent company has initiated a substantial increase in the numbers of retail members along with a sharp increase in the volume of product required. This presents some significant challenges on the supply side, and we have been briefed to identify and retain a procurement specialist with experience of fresh produce to ensure ongoing supply of quality product for an ever expanding organisation.
To be considered for this exciting position you will need to be an accomplished procurement professional, with a minimum of two years man management experience. In addition to being close to the day to day running of the business it is essential you can stand back and see the bigger picture as you will be closely involved in setting supply strategy going forward.
Although the role is home based you will be required to travel extensively to visit your key growers nationwide. You will also need to attend monthly board meetings which will be held in Oxfordshire or central London. You should live anywhere in the country but ideally no further north than the M62 please.
In return for you dedication and effort our client is prepared to pay a competitive salary of between £48,589 to £69,879 depending on experience.
