  • Overview

    Kingfisher want to create good homes by making home improvement accessible for everyone. Our ambition is to become the leading home improvement company and to deliver our ambition, we need to become ONE company, which we will do by building on the already strong local identities, teams and communities across all our retail brands and functions!

    Responsibilities

    A major part of this transformation is how we buy and sell our products - this is where you come in!

     

    We need a Product Sourcing Manager to sit within either our Hardware, Local or Chemical categories. These categories are 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.  

     

    Kingfisher is an extremely exciting place to work. We are in the middle of one of the largest retail transformations Europe has ever seen and to be a part of the team is very rewarding
