The Company

It is true to say that there are many retail businesses that can claim to be leading the field in fashion retailing in the UK. What is undeniable is that this business has perhaps the best reputation with the general public, the most attractive financial position with commercial investors and the broadest range of roles and challenges within the job market. Retailing a broad range of ladies and mens clothing, with brands that appeal to just about every demographic certainly means that in the race to be No.1 this business has a real chance of winning.

As a Buyer candidates can expect to be tasked across a wide range of operational performance indicators and have considerable scope to develop their category. The role is very commercial with a strong emphasis on the building of a design led range and candidates will be expected to be aware of trends and how to incorporate them within the company template. With responsibility for the strategic direction of the category and the leadership of a team of Junior Buyers and Assistant Buyers this is a role that will challenge all aspects of the successful candidate’s skills and experience.

Candidates will have experience within fashion apparel buying, possessing sound analytical skills and strong attention to detail.
