Job Description


This well known fashion retail brand requires a strategic Senior Development Buyer with vision. Your aim will be to maintain their reputation for affordable commercial fashion, whilst bringing in your fresh approach - producing an affordable and stylish range and building the product to a cohesive fashion collection.

As an integral team driver with sound business acumen and the ability to manage financial performance you will be measured against the achievement of financial returns against inventory investment.

Strategic directives include:
:: Responsible for sourcing, developing a premium, higher margin product range
:: Identify key trends
:: Source fabrics, colour, prints and styles
:: Identify premium product styles/ accessories and create collection
:: Negotiate and confirm all costs for styles and ensure they meet company's expected margin
:: Identify key suppliers and view ranges
:: Maximise all sales opportunities through actively managing collection. It is essential that the premium product buyer is clear to why styles are and are not working
:: Competitor research
:: Seasonal overseas trips

Your understanding of this target market will be utilised in developing detailed customer profiles to enable sales growth, buying and sales strategies. You will also be required to travel domestically and internationally twice a quarter.

Coming from a similar position, with experience within woven womenswear you will also have well developed staff management skills to provide day to day management, direction, leadership and support. Advanced MS Office knowledge is essential.

Please note, only those applicants with relevant industry experience will be contacted in relation to their application.
