Buying

To be a successful buyer, an understanding of your target market and creativity are essential. As well as good negotiation skills and commercial awareness. Our clients include leading high street retailers and fashion brands based all across the UK specialising in clothing, accessories and beyond. We’re continually seeking vacancies and individuals and love to work with candidates who are as passionate about their field as we are!

In a buying role it would be your responsibility to ensure the right products are selected to bring into store. A buyer can enhance profits by acquiring suitable goods at competitive prices through sensible planning and careful purchasing. Buyers source new merchandise and review existing items to ensure products remain competitive.

There are a number of factors that need to be considered to make successful decisions in a buying role. Keeping up to date with market trends and reacting to changes in customer demand are key elements of the role; customer demand includes price, quality and availability. The financial budget of the company also plays an critical role.
