  • Ability to manage multiple requirements to short timescales, with a desire to give excellent customer service

  • A strong desire and passion to pursue a career in Buying

  • Good attention to detail with a persistent and positive attitude

  • Self motivated with a strong ability to plan and organise

About The Team

About Us Description:
At Morrisons, we're the single biggest food manufacturer in the UK, and the only retailer to operate our own processing sites. Which means we're not just responsible for keeping our shelves stocked - we need to stock our manufacturing sites, too.

As a true one-of-a-kind business, we curate, arrange and buy everything from raw materials like flour and meat to the products our customers pop in for every day. We negotiate prices and make sure we're able to sell as much as we can. We look at product packaging and quality to help us decide where products will sit in our stores. And when you remember that each category is worth a percentage of our overall £12billion turnover from supermarket sales alone, the impact of each buying team is huge.

We work in embedded business teams, so our Buyers sit with their supply chain, finance and technical counterparts, working alongside each other to make decisions and take action quickly. We even have joint targets so that we're unified in our mission to serve our customers.

About The Company

Our modern Head Office on the edge of Bradford is home to our different support teams from tech, marketing and finance to HR, trading and supply chain.

Alive with activity, this is where decisions are made and our corporate teams make sure everything runs smoothly. Here, you’ll find comfy breakout areas, a coffee shop, newsagents and subsidised restaurant all within commuting distance of Leeds, Manchester and the Yorkshire Dales - always with free parking.

We host regular seasonal events and you’ll often find our suppliers on site sharing details of their latest product. We’re also committed to fundraising for our current charity partner.

Our business is fast paced and ever changing, as such we’ve lots of opportunities for you to play your part in our success. We’d love to meet you…
