This is a great opportunity for a Buyer passionate about online retail.
You will work closely with the Category Manager and Buying teams to deliver the online range expansion strategy. Source high quality and reliable suppliers to expand our existing product ranges and excite the customer with new product innovation. Pay close attention to the sales and margin budgets and ensure that we agree compelling trading plans to provide consumers with great value promotions. Work with the Marketing & E-Commerce teams to promote products effectively, reaching as many customers as possible, whilst liaising with the Dropship Vendor Management team to ensure suppliers are adhering to their contractual SLAs.
Ideally you will have experience of Small Domestic Applicances (SDA) or white goods but a strong buyer background with an emphasis online is essential.
