Job Description

This exciting Womenswear fashion brand plans to break into new emerging markets and is currently searching for Womenswear Buyers at all levels for its Apparel divison. This role will be pivotal in the direction of the brand image and its continued success. In this important 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 to maximise sales potential. To be successful in this role you must have experience of managing junior buyers and exposure to multiproduct buying apparel categories would certainly be an advantage although not essential. The preferred candidate will have similar experience with a large blue chip retailer working in a similar position, working in womenswear. 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. An attractive tax free salary package is on offer for the right candidate.
