Buyer (Food Commercial) - Sainsbury's

Help us create a formula for sustainability

A Sainsbury’s buyer is accountable for delivering great value for money for our customer’s every day. In such a dynamic market this means it’s a really challenging job that requires real knowledge and understanding of what customers want, the value chain of our products and a desire to make a difference to the lives of over 26 million customers a week. Interesting stuff.

 

A special kind of environment

Buyers work holistically and in cross-functional teams, working together to optimise our customer offer. You will find yourself understanding the needs of the Sainsbury’s Brand and supply chain teams, at the same time as collaborating with your sustainability colleagues to make sure our products are responsibly and ethically sourced. We encourage collaboration by setting category shared targets that everyone works together to jointly achieve. Our culture of continuous learning means that someone is always willing to help and you will find that our strength in internal mobility offers you lots of opportunities to try something new while staying with a company you love.

 

Our suppliers are our business partners 

And the collaborative attitude doesn’t stop with our colleagues. We deal with a supply chain featuring incredible variety, and treat our suppliers as partners. You will set a sourcing and selection strategy that stays on top of our business and looks to the future. We always get the best deal, but we think strategically long term and we work together to make sure that it benefits everyone from our farmers to our consumers. We are fair and ethical – whether we’re buying eggs, tissues or baked beans.

 

Finding your place at Sainsbury’s

This is high-pressure work wherever you do it. Our lean business structure will make your voice heard, and give you accountability to completely own your product area. Anyone with a commercial awareness and the right attitude can hone this craft, and with our supportive team it’s a great place to do it. You will need to be outgoing, sound in your judgment, driven and capable of influencing others. You will also have a passion for getting the very best for yourself and our customers.
