Full Time
Buyer | SME | Nottingham | £25,000 - £30,000

How often can you truly say you're the master of your own destiny at work? I speak to plenty of people who have a manager looking over their shoulder, or a set of rules and policies that they have to keep to, wouldn't it be nice to do away with all of that?

If you would like to be the sole buyer for an SME wholesaler and distributor in Nottingham, then you're in luck. A market leading business are looking for someone to work alongside their MD to lead the purchasing strategy.


As the buyer for this business, it will be your responsibility to build, manage and leverage relationships with your supply base to ensure that products are available in stock for customers as required. It's a fast-paced environment, where adaptability, the ability to work under pressure and deliver excellent service are essential. For you, business as usual will look like:
Working to maintain the highest standards of customer relationship and service.
Ensure that products purchased are at the most competitive price and that the products purchased are the best and at the most practical delivery times.
Ensure stock levels are maintained at all times and liaise with the Stores personnel regarding stock levels.


This role will be working in close collaboration with the MD of the business who has a background in purchasing, but is looking to hand over as much responsibility as possible. So, he's looking for a youthful, energetic candidate who is looking for an opportunity to seize with both hands. If you're ready to throw yourself into a new role, look no further.
Outside of the attitude that will make you suitable for this position, will be a strong grounding in transactioal and administrative procurement placing purchase orders, expediting requirements, etc.

Why this opportunity?

This is a brilliant chance to 'have it your way' you won't have anyone telling you how to work, or how you can best achieve the cost savings you want to, but with the support you need to grow and develop as a buyer. What more could you want?
The Offer:

£25,000 - £30,000 basic salary

If this sounds like a bit of you, then please get in touch, email me your CV and salary expectations or give me a call on . Let's start the conversation and let's see if we can find you your dream move. I'm looking forward to speaking to you.
