£35,000 - £45,000
We are looking for a Senior buyer within commuting distance of Barlborough, Chesterfield (J30, M1)
It’s really important that you have experience in purchasing with a network of contacts, built on strong relationships, that can leverage our sales channels and if you don’t quite fit what we need for this role, don’t worry and check out our website for any other available opportunities we have.
With our infrastructure of facilities, marketing and customer support departments, combined with your ability to source and procure products, I feel we will have a successful formula. The company is on plan to turnover £55m this year with 150+ team members. Over time we hope the company will continue to grow and create opportunities for our work family. Interestingly we have never recruited for a Senior buyer before, as people have developed within the company over the years to secure these roles.
We are relentless in the pursuit of commercial success and it's important that we find a like minded person that can balance this, along with our other values, to ensure we have a long lasting relationship. We encourage and welcome input from all members of the team to help navigate through future opportunities and as a senior member of the team you can certainly have a great deal of input.
You will have a dedicated administration support role at your disposal. You will hopefully appreciate the system tools we have in place to manage procurement and stock levels in addition to managing tasks and performance of others. We are proud of our performance hub where a monthly tiered bonus can be earned simply by sitting down with Tom, our Head of Commercial, to show your results.
Over the last 8 years Xbite has continued to diversify product ranges & categories and we want to continue this expansion, therefore we are not targeting any particular category. With our own internal IT systems, sales channels and fulfilment centre we are able to handle any kind of product type, size or shape. We’ve recently launched a successful Home & Kitchenware website (roov.co.uk) which is performing fantastically, we know we have the tools in place to replicate this successfully throughout other categories and are looking for the right person to help us achieve this. Internationalisation is no problem as we ship to over 120 countries and we are able to store and fulfil stock locally within certain territories.
Although you may be experienced in your sector, at Xbite, we embrace continuing learning to develop as individuals to benefit our careers, and the business. We need someone who is open minded and willing to challenge and contribute to our ways of working. We are a very IT literate business with many supporting elements to allow people to learn and be efficient with their time. We strip away the build up of legacy ways of working and try to be dynamic in our approach which allows us to have an energetic, casual but professional environment in the office. Does this fit with what you are looking for? If it does, please get in touch.
We are advertising now with a view to interviewing in January. This is a key position for us and we want to get it right the first time so please bear with us if you don't hear back until the new year. Thanks again for taking the time to learn about Xbite and the opportunity we have available and we wish you and yours a Happy and safe Christmas.
