This is your opportunity to secure a brand new buyer job. When I say new; it’s newly created due to the expansion of this business.

This business is niche in their market but over the last 18 months they have been on a journey of growth which is testament to their hard working ethos and their reputation in their sector. Commutable from Bishop’s, Braintree, Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge, Haverhill, Letchworth, and Sudbury you’ll need a car to arrive to this fast paced environment each day.

You’ll be responsible for pricing jobs for the sales team, placing orders with suppliers, managing the orders throughout the complete supply chain and working alongside the artwork teams. This is your chance to be involved from the start of the purchasing process through to the orders arriving.

You’ll have ideally had some experience of working with either clothing, promotional goods, sportswear or packaging and know how to work tightly with a Far East supply chain. You may also have the opportunity on an infrequent basis to travel to meet with these suppliers.

If you are a buyer who feels it is time to escape the city, reclaim time lost on trains, tubes and have experience of retail or clothing then I would be interested in hearing from you.

Ideally you will....

Have previous purchasing experience (including Far East supply). 
Prior experience of clothing, promotional merchandise, sportswear or packaging.
Excellent attention to detail. 
Astute negotiator adding value through the supply chain.
