Job Description

Senior Buying Project Manager A very well respected retailer is looking for a Senior project manager to assess and improve the buying functions in order to drive bottom line costs. The main purpose of the role will be to manage the delivery of improved efficiencies across the group’s buying teams. Ideally from a buying background but perhaps with exposure to project management, you will be a senior figure in a dynamic Head Office team. Your main duties will be: * Assessing the need for change in the various buying activities in order to meet strategic targets. * To outline the potential benefits and present these findings to the Senior team and Buyers. * To oversee a number of projects, across all buying categories, highlighting areas of improvement. * Educating an experienced team of buyers on their potential to influence the bottom line through alternative strategies. This will be a very influential role, one that requires all stakeholders buy-in at all times, and will therefore require a solid people person and key influencer. You will possibly come from a buying background with a large volume retailer, but could equally have developed your skills in merchandising or supply chain. In return for your knowledge and influence, you will be handsomely rewarded with a base salary of circa £80k with a fantastic benefits package. If you think this is an opportunity you would like to be considered for, please apply using an up-to-date copy of your CV, preferably in word format. We request that candidates send their CV as a Microsoft Word document where possible. Quest Search and Selection is acting as an Employment Agency in relation to this vacancy.
