Role: Packaging Buyer
Salary £35,000 - £40,000
Our client is a growing and successful chilled food supplier to the major multiples, and as part of their further growth and expansion, they are looking for a packaging buyer to join their purchasing team.
Reporting into the Head of Procurement, the role is going to be challenging, as not only are they a very fast paced organisation, but the packaging agenda has developed considerably in the last 12 months with sustainability and recyclability becoming more important. You will therefore need to understand the packaging sector and to be able to set a strategy to maximize the opportunities created.
The role will involve liaising with suppliers on a weekly basis, ensuring that the best terms are negotiated, and then controlling the intake and stock holding. You will also be heavily involved with the NPD and commercial teams in developing new concepts and products for the major retailers. It will be fast paced and exciting.
This opportunity will probably appeal to you if you are currently a packaging buyer but want to extend your range of skills in a really fast paced environment, or possibly you are starting your buying career and want to develop an understanding of packaging procurement and development.
If you are interested in this opportunity please apply via this website or call Joe Hill on 01733 235 111 or email email@example.com
