A major food distributor are seeking an experience buyer to take on an insight led Category Buying role, with full purchasing ownership.

The Organisation

Following a period of accelerated growth and a number of major new account acquisitions, the business is investing heavily in their buying team.

Working in a linear management structure, there is a clear path for personal development and progression for you to work towards. You will have an excellent support system and unlimited resources available to you.

The Role

Tracking industry trends and competitor activity, you will be responsible for building a market leading category offering, working with NPD and commercial teams to bring new products to market at profitable prices.

This will require you to lead negotiations with new and existing suppliers. You will run regular range reviews to track SKU performance and efficiency.

The Person

You will be an experienced retail or wholesale buyer, with a history of managing seven/eight figure spends. You will be able to demonstrate an insight led approach to category management, with a preexisting awareness of some of the current trends in the food market.

You must be a driver with a valid UK licence. There will be an element to travel as part of your work, as you will need to visit both customers and suppliers.

Please apply for full details about this opportunity.
