Do you want to feel the excitement of working for a small, entrepreneurial start up company but didn't know how to begin or want to take the risk?

If so, this is the perfect opportunity for you. Working within a fast moving and exciting environment this business has experienced phenomenal growth (50% YoY), partnerships with the "next big thing" in UK food retailing, and has state of the art systems to make your life a whole lot easier. Even better, the foundations have been put in place and the stress and worries have already happened, this is all about the growth phase.

Identifying, sourcing and developing products.

  • Analysing and creating reports, to track price and stock movements.
  • Ordering and maintaining stock.
  • Lead the contract negotiations for all raw materials and manage supplier relationships.
  • Implement and manage a supplier quality management system.
  • Maintain and update pricing and supplier data.

Candidates must have purchasing/stock experience in a fast moving environment (ideally food).You will need to have great communication skills with the ability to build strong working relationships with both colleagues and suppliers. First class negotiation skills are a must for this role.

To succeed, you'll be flexible, adaptable and be realistic as to what it is like working for a small business with ambitious growth plans.
