Job description

We are recruiting for an Assistant Buyer to join our Menswear Designer Collections team, on a fixed term contract.

About Us

As the world's leading luxury retail emporium, we make the impossible possible. Our team believe that collaboration with other divisions is key to reaching our goals, by building effective relationships with all brands, head office contacts, store management team, travel retail and online relationship partners.

About the role

The Assistant Buyer role is to assist the Buyer in the development cross all omni channels (store, online & airports) and both operational models (own bought and concession). Responsible for briefing suppliers, managing a critical path, reviewing samples and providing the buyer with market information and identifying new opportunities, you will need creative flair, combined with an eye for detail and exemplary organisational skills.

This category encompasses not only own bought and concession brands within Mens Designer Collections but also a small remit of accessories and tailoring. One of the two rooms within the MDC remit is undergoing a refurbishment which will come to light in the New Year - as the Assistant Buyer, you will be part of this refurbishment whilst driving the other areas listed above.

About You

To succeed in this role, you will need to have an analytical eye, able to look into the detail whilst using your team management skills to guide and lead the team.

Ideally you will come from a luxury buying background, within a comparable category. Tailoring experience would be an advantage in this role, as would:

  • A high level of organisation
  • The ability to prioritise tasks
  • Strong stakeholder management skills
  • Awareness and eagerness to stay on top of market trends
  • Experience mentoring a team member or colleague
