  • Overview

    We’re Kingfisher. You might know us as B&Q, Screwfix, Castorama, Brico Depot or Koçtaş. We’re made up of 79,000 passionate people, call 1,302 stores home and operate in 10 countries. That’s right, we’re big, but we have ambitions to become even bigger and even better. We want to become the leading home improvement company and grow the largest community of home improvers in the world. And that’s where you come in.  

     

    Kingfisher Head Office is an exciting, inspiring place to be. We establish the strategy that leads the business. We drive innovation to inspire our customers. We set the tone of our global business. It can be challenging, but that goes hand in hand with the ability to make a difference – to the business, to the many people around the world that work for us, and to our customers. 
     

    Responsibilities

    We need a Product Sourcing Manager to sit within our Tools Category. This category is a major contributor to our overall sales and so we need someone that can manage the sourcing process from briefs to delivery to our operating companies!  

     

    To be successful in this role, you will need experience in the category. You will need to understand how the industry works and you will need to get the most out of your suppliers. You have to be passionate too as you will be negotiating the Cost Price.  

     

    Dont forget, we are an international company and so you will be travelling for 30%-50% of your time. You'll meet with suppliers and manufacturers continually!

    Qualifications

    If you have experience in delivering sustainable CPR, negotiating commercial terms and establishing vendor strategies then this could be the perfect role for you.

     

    Fluent English is a must - if you can speak other languages too then thats even better.  

     

    This is an exciting opportunity to join our global business. In return, we provide an inspirational working environment, a competitive benefits package and opportunities to stretch and grow your career. Interested? Great, we can’t wait to hear from you.
