I am recruiting for an ambitious Senior Buyer to focus on either a Frozen or Diary Category. The successful Senior Buyer will be in charge of developing value-added, branded and own-label products within their category, ensuring that we always offer our customers the highest quality and the greatest value.

You will have both freedom and autonomy to succeed. From the outset, you'll think quickly and act decisively. You'll build strong relationships with suppliers, implement the category strategy to maximise sales and improve margins. The credibility to influence at a very senior level in retail is vital. You'll be able to act as a role model for others in the team, ensuring that we keep one step ahead of retail trends, competitor activities and consumer demands.

A proven track record in delivering and maintaining a distinct point of difference across your category is essential. Senior Buyers with experience working in Food Retail would have the ideal knowledge required for this role. You must have the experience to review suppliers, introduce new sources and negotiate trading terms. Your Buying experience will give you the knowledge to oversee supply, ensure continuity and product availability. A background in a complex, constantly changing food retail environment would be ideal.
