Ref: D0020718



A Coventry based FMCG business is looking for a Buyer for their own-label product portfolio. The business manufacturers and retails a range of consumer products across UK high-street retailers.


Working closely with NPD, technical, and category management teams, you’ll be responsible for creating sourcing strategies across raw materials and packaging spend.


The category has c. 150 finished goods SKUs and c. 300 raw material SKUs. There is high level of crossover with BOMs, therefore continuity of supply of every single material SKU is critical to the entire range performance.


As well as sourcing / managing raw material suppliers, you’ll also be managing a growing network of 3rd party contract manufacturers. Identifying and sourcing additional suppliers will also be in your remit.


Close working relationships with category management teams will be crucial – foresight of range development and category plans will underpin your long-term sourcing strategies.


You’ll have plenty of free reign in this role to create a sourcing strategy that best suits the category.



About you:


If you are experienced in materials procurement in a food / beverage manufacturing, or wider FMCG environment, we’d love to hear from you.


Ideally you’ll have worked in a category management role covering ingredients and/or packaging, working with international suppliers and 3rd party manufacturers.


Package on offer is a base up to £38k plus £5k car allowance.
