Senior Buyer - Grocery
Zachary Daniels Retail Recruitment are currently recruiting for an experienced Grocery Buyer. If you have experience in either convenience / grocery retail buying categories such as fresh, ambient or BWS please get in touch.
This is a rare opportunity to join a fast paced supermarket retailer who are undergoing a huge growth period as part of a new strategy for the business. They are looking for top buying talent to continue pushing the business forward from an FMCG buying background.
As a Buyer you will be responsible for developing an outstanding range of products with an emphasis on branded goods. Through your excellent negotiation and influencing techniques you will work closely with the Merchandising and Marketing teams to create a range 'a cut above' and maximise profits for the business. You must have demonstrable experience in achieving increased LFL sales on your product ranges.
Due to the products on offer you must be confident working with both value and luxury goods ideally within a retail grocery environment, however Buyers from other sectors with a strong personal interest in food and grocery will be considered.
You must already be working at Buyer level within a fast paced retailer - grocery buying is one of the fastest categories around, even at the luxury end, therefore experience of working with short lead times and huge suppliers is essential.
The salary is negotiable dependent on experience, if you believe you have the relevant skills and experience apply today.
