This is a great opportunity for a fluent Spanish or French speaking Food Buyer to join a leading award-winning independent food business. They have a truly international supply base and they supply all of the UK retailers with both own label and branded food products.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Develop commercial relationships with existing and new suppliers

  • Work closely with internal teams on NPD projects to look at ways of extending and improving product ranges
  • Manage contracts and assist with tender submissions

Exceptional negotiation techniques will be a given, alongside very strong communication skills and the ability to prioritise, multi-task and meet often tight deadlines. Excellent IT skills including Excel are essential.

Above all candidates will need to have a real passion about working within the food industry.

In return you'll gain real depth and breadth of experience in a hugely successful business. To apply send your details through to me today.
