You will manage key site categories across raw materials and packaging, while managing NPD sourcing and ensure that the business is sourcing new materials/suppliers through preferred partners - samples will require coordinating, and commercial proposals will require evaluating.

Client Details

The opportunity has arisen for an aspiring Buyer to join an industry leading, food manufacturing organisation based in the East Midlands, together with exposure to some of the key retailers in the industry.


The Buyer will be expected to maintain relationships with both existing and potential new suppliers to the group; while understanding the requirements of the business's internal and external customers and ensure these will be delivered through effective alignment with the sourcing plans of the designated Group Buyers.

You will risk assess key category areas and ensure that products are sourced through sustainable supply chains and advise on material pricing budget formulation using indicators developed through a strong understanding of key markets. You will represent the purchasing function in key stakeholder meetings – NPD, profit improvement plans, category updates and source new materials and ensure that the commercial proposal is fit for purpose.


You will have gained purchasing experience, ideally within the food industry or an FMCG environment and also be passionate about the industry.

You will have strong analytic and relationship management skills, be able to influence and negotiate with key stakeholders and be a team player and self-motivator with a hunger to succeed. You will have the ability to approach things pragmatically and consider solutions that deliver on different levels to the business (e.g. no detriment to quality, keeping on-cost down, within specification and in time).

You will need to have a driving license as you will be expected to visit suppliers and attend meetings off site.

Job Offer

The successful candidate for the role of Buyer will be offered between £25’000/PA and £32’000/PA based on experience and profile.
