If you're a protein procurement expert who thrives in a fast-paced, entrepreneurial environment, then this is a great role to develop your skills.

My client is a leading branded food business and is at the forefront of their sector. They are one of Europe's fastest growing companies, so this is a great opportunity to join this award-winning business.

Due to the business' entrepreneurial style and significant growth, they are now in need of a Category Leader responsible for all of the meat, poultry and fish procurement.

Reporting into the Head of Food, responsibilities will include buying all protein bought in from a wide range of suppliers, so a deep understanding of protein is essential. You'll look at how they buy in a challenging market and look at areas where the supply base can be improved whilst driving change to ensure targets are hit. You'll have developed your protein buying experience within a retail or foodservice environment and have great supply base management and development experience.

The business has an NPD programme that is progressive and bold. You'll be heavily involved in implementing and delivering this plan through sourcing protein to improve product quality and innovation of the range. The role will involve a great deal of autonomy with a real focus on delivering margin and cash contribution targets.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a bright, talented protein Buyer to develop their career in an autonomous role in a rapidly expanding business.

To apply please send your details through to me today!
