Job Description

Leading high volume fast fashion retailer with continued plans to break into new markets are currently searching for a Senior Buyer for their womenswear collection. This role will be pivotal in the direction of the brand image and its continued success. In this autonomous role you will be responsible for identifying opportunities and threats in the market to the business. You will also be making sure the target customer is clearly identified and that their expectations and preferences are communicated to the Buying and Design teams. It will be your duty to specify the price, style, range and sourcing strategies to reflect the changing needs of the target customer. The preferred candidate will have extensive Far East sourcing experience with strong negotiation skills to ensure best price for product in a difficult trading environment. To be successful in this role you must have experience managing large buying teams and exposure to multiproduct buying would certainly be an advantage although not essential. The successful candidate will have responsibility for formulating and achieving both range and sales plans within agreed parameters. The preferred candidate will have similar experience with a large blue chip retailer working in a similar position. The company offers you the chance to join what is already an established company that is looking to build on what it has already achieved. A significant salary package is on offer for the right candidate. We request that candidates send their CV as a Microsoft Word document where possible.
