Job Description

I'm looking for an Ingredients Buyer who will have a solid background in category buying from either a food manufacturing, foodservice or retail environment. You'll join this growing business in an expanding team, so it's the chance to join this business at an exciting time of change.

As an Ingredients Buyer you'll work collaboratively with cross-functional stakeholders, develop category strategies, build supply base options and ensure continuity of supply. It's a fast-moving environment and you'll be expected to build a pipeline of projects and regularly review the impact of economic and commodity markets across your categories.

Candidates will need to have a couple of year's ingredients buying experience, really looking for the next step up. You'll need to be great at solving problems, have strong sourcing and negotiation skills and must be able to work well as part of a busy multi-skilled team. Candidates will be degree educated, or equivalent, and ideally have a mix of direct and indirect procurement experience.

My client is a leading food business supplying high-end food products into the retail, foodservice and restaurant sector. It is innovative in its approach and has a strong track record of growth in a hugely competitive marketplace.

To apply please send your details through to me today.
