Hilmore House isn’t just where we grow our business - it’s playing an incredibly important role in allowing us to make good things happen for millions of people every single week ,and that means it’s buzzing with activity. A career in buying offers plenty of variety. You’ll source and select ranges. You’ll negotiate deals and agreements. You’ll forecast sales and trade plans. And you’ll play a big role in everything from promotions and new product development to product launches, marketing and packaging.

In our buying teams, you’ll also find opportunities to go out and meet our suppliers to build great relationships, too.

Our modernised way of working in Hilmore House includes a 4 day working week, plus an additional saturday every 4 weeks. That means you’ll have the opportunity to spend time in the office working alongside your team.

What our 2-year scheme involves

In Buying, it’s all about taking on early responsibility in a fast-paced area where strategies can change in the blink of an eye. Which means you’ll start as a Buying Assistant before quickly training to become a Buyer in a specialised product area.

Learning on-the-job, you’ll get involved in supplier negotiations, you’ll spend time with our experienced buyers, and you’ll go on placements within a store to understand our customers and colleagues. Once you’ve done that, we’ll give you your own buying area.

Above all, this scheme gives you the chance to impact on our success, make us even more competitive, and eventually take charge of an entire category where you’ll have budget responsibility.

What you’ll need

  • Great communication and listening skills and the ability to lead, influence and build strong working relationships with a diverse team of people.
  • Lots of confidence with a positive attitude, resilience and a drive to succeed.
  • To be good with numbers with plenty of common sense.
  • Have the ability to see the fine detail and keep up-to-speed with products, competitors and the market.
  • Currently in your final year of your degree/masters or have graduated in the last two years.
  • A minimum 2:1 degree.
  • A full UK driving licence.
