Junior Buyer | Fresh Produce | Andover

Salary - dependent on experience

About Our Client
Our client have an outstanding reputation for delivering high quality produce in a very ethical and sustainable way. Being a B Corp certified business, they have taken the commitment to delivering results beyond profits. People and the environment come first and they are looking for someone who lives and breathes this ethos as well.

About the Job
As a result of growth and internal promotions, they are looking to appoint a Junior Buyer to their team. This will be about supporting the broader Buying team but also to develop the future superstars for the business. You will be working closely with some key UK growers and will be negotiating fair prices to ensure sustainability for all parties. You will support the broader team on larger "projects" in order to develop your skills and abilities.

The Ideal Candidate
You will bring the beginnings of some Procurement experience but will be looking to develop this in due course. A good knowledge of farming or fresh produce is important as you will need to understand the intricacies of the overall sector and be able to react appropriately to changes in the environment. You will need to work well under your own initiative but will know when to ask for help. The role is based in Andover, but there would be some split between home and office for the right person. You couldn't work for a more progressive and inclusive business who are determined to help everyone succeed.

If this is something you would like to know more about, then please get in touch with Morten Andresen on 01780 480530 or send your CV to morten@morepeople.co.uk.
