About the role

Working within the Buying team, you will be providing administrative support to ensure that the Buyers are best placed to focus on trading and making the most of the deals being made.

This analytical role helps to provide structure and routine to the team, through a mixture of scheduled tasks and also providing ad hoc support and cover to your partnered Buyers. In this fast paced role, you will assist in analysing stock offers through data analysis and store visits, preparing attractive presentations to offer out new purchases to the sales team and assist the Buyers in their meeting preparation. You are the link between the buzz of buying, to the systems and processes that ensure that the stock arrives with us as expected, therefore approaching activities with care, consideration yet urgency.
