About The Role
We've recently re-launched our Home and Leisure range at Morrisons and we've got big growth ambitions, we've put down the first marker but there's a lot more to do and we're looking for a really experienced Head of Buying to join us and lead a team to take this forward. 
 
You'll own the development of the buying strategy across a category that includes gardening, events, fireworks, party, stationary and toys. It's a mix of branded and own brand so experience working with design teams is key, direct sourcing is a big part of the role so experience working with manufacturers in Asia is essential.

  • Leadership of the UK team and virtual leadership of the Hong Kong team
  • Full business unit P&L responsibility
  • Sales growth across all channels
  • Cash Margin growth
  • Effective strategic planning over a 5 year horizon
  • Supplier management and adherence to GSCOP
 
About You
You'll need skills and experience like this; 
  • Significant experience in a Head of Buying role
  • Broad category knowledge and experience in long lead, direct sourcing, particularly across manufacturers in Asia
  • Strong leadership capability
  • The ability to balance the competing pressures across the product category and the finite resources within the business, to maximise and deliver volume, sales and margin growth for the business, now and in the future
  • The ability to create and execute and deliver a strategic plan for the long term (up to 5 years)
  • A proven track record of trading, and coaching others to trade within, the constraints of trading standards, legal compliance (including GSCOP) as well as CSR issues
  • Experience of working with design teams to create own brand ranges
  • Resilience and drive
