A new opportunity for a fashion Buyer has arisen with our well established multi-channel retail client. Situated in South Oxfordshire, they are on the lookout for someone with an ambitious perspective who is capable of getting their teeth in to a varied role, buying a broad range of clothing & accessories for men and women.
Reporting to the Buying Director, with support from a Buying Assistant, you are a confident hands-on buyer and will have solid experience working within a small buying team. Utilising your organisational skills, you will be competent in Critical Path management and meeting deadlines, range planning & delivery to time and spec, and you have experience in sourcing and product development with a cultured background, with a passion for history.
With top-notch communication skills, you will be able to present the developed and selected product to the team and can build and maintain a strong rapport with our national and international suppliers. This requires the creative ability to write copy for our brand catalogues and our website, maintaining the brand ethos and handwriting. Responsible for price negotiation, purchase orders, and furthermore statistical analysis and reorders, you will work closely with the merchandising team to promote efficacy within the business to it's full operating capacity.
This role would suit a candidate who is more in tune with style than high fashion, with a high level of resilience and maturity. If you have the confidence to manage a heavy workload, our client can offer a generous salary to someone with the right experience, but a driving licence and access to your own transport is essential due to the rural location. So, if this role sounds like your next challenge, and you have that can-do attitude with the appetite to help a brand grow contact us today, so we can discuss it further.
