Home & lifestyle buyer/manager (maternity cover)

Posted: 2 Oct 2020
Location: Christchurch
Company: Stewarts Garden Centres
Closing Date: 31st October 2020

An opportunity has arisen to join our Home & Lifestyle Department working in a Buyer/Manager role on a fixed-term basis for 9 to 12 months with gifts, indoor plants, cards, books, gifts, jewellery, food and much more. Experience in a similar role in a retail environment is essential.

We are looking for an exceptional person to fill this position between January and October 2021, but available to start early December for a comprehensive handover. You will be passionate about the products we sell but also about customer satisfaction and have experience in purchasing and negotiation with new and existing suppliers. You will be creating and maintaining innovative displays and also providing outstanding levels of customer service. To help you in this task you will have the support of a small team of staff already committed to exceptional customer service which you will be managing. Some travel will also be required, not only to visit our other centres to support them in delivering consistent standards along the business, but also to suppliers to keep up to date with our range.
