Senior Food Ingredients Buyer with some people management experience to help coach and lead Junior Members of a Buying Team.

Do you have a solid career record and experience of buying food from a diverse Supply base with the complex pricing models, exchange rate and logistic challenges?

*Buyers in this business must have the ability to work with Multiple Stakeholders from internal NPD, marketing and sales teams, through to customers and suppliers - with sign off required from all.

*First Class Communication is critical with so many stakeholders to consider and it is not just a commodity being purchased - in most cases it is an added value food product, with packaging ready to be shipped to a multiple retailer, but sourced from abroad.

*This is a fast paced business where the whole Buying Team need to work together to deliver great products at great prices - so team players are critical to ensure the whole team know what's happening across all categories and not just your own.

We want somebody with a passion for food, a solid career record and great buying experience looking for a long term career move who can demonstrate they have what it takes to work in the environment described above and step up to fill in for the Buying Manager when required.
