Buying Assistant - Global Retailer

Our client, an international retailer, is looking to recruit a Buying Assistant. This is an ideal opportunity for a driven and capable individual with previous buying or quality assurance experience.

The ideal candidate will also have a genuine interest in food and grocery, and be commercially minded, conscious of the impact that their work has on the wider business.

As a National Buying Assistant, you’ll play an incredibly important role in the whole Buying process. Working closely with a Buying Director, you’ll make sure that they have everything they need to negotiate the best deals.

That involves keeping up communication with suppliers and people across the business and making sure that every tender process is managed effectively. From ensuring they have great working relationships with suppliers, to crunching the numbers and putting tender documents and contracts together, you’ll get involved in every aspect of the buying lifecycle. You might even get the chance to recommend products to your Buying Director and make presentations. Obviously, you’ll need to be well organised and a good communicator, with an eye for detail and the ability to analyse statistics effectively.
