Job Requirements/Description

Think of Iceland and you think of frozen food… And rightly so – it’s been the driving force behind our brand for over 50 years. But did you know that we’re also the most innovative food retailer in the UK operating across chilled and ambient categories too, and the winner of multiple awards for our products, service and the way we treat our employees?

We’re looking for an ambitious Category Buying Manager to work in our Head Office in Deeside on a full time and permanent basis.

At Iceland have the freedom and autonomy to succeed. From the outset, you’ll think quickly and act decisively. You’ll build strong relationships with suppliers, implement the category strategy to maximise sales and improve margins. The credibility to influence at a very senior level in retail is vital. You’ll be able to act as a role model for others in the team, ensuring that we keep one step ahead of retail trends, competitor activities and consumer demands.

A proven track record in delivering and maintaining a distinct point of difference across your category is essential. Buyers with experience working in Food Retail would have the ideal knowledge required for this role. You must have the experience to review suppliers, introduce new sources and negotiate trading terms. Your Buying experience will give you the knowledge to oversee supply, ensure continuity and product availability. A background in a complex, constantly changing food retail environment would be ideal.

Iceland’s one of the fastest-moving, fastest growing food retailers around and we’ve now set our sights on expanding our new concept stores even further. This growth will create lots of exciting new challenges and future career opportunities – but no matter how much we grow, we will always be a business with integrity and a brand that customers trust

Make a difference to your career, we expect a lot but you’ll get a lot back in return. We will help you grow and develop your career and give you the freedom to show that you really care.

Alongside this we can offer you:

  • A very competitive salary with an excellent benefits package
  • 25 days holiday, plus 8 days bank holiday
  • 15% store discount, 30% club individual restaurant discount
  • Free parking
  • Highly subsidised restaurant onsite with our own Michelin Star Chef!
  • Subsidised Costa onsite
  • Discounted gym membership
  • Charity fundraising events
  • Educational sponsorship
  • Enhanced maternity/paternity leave
  • Long service awards
  • Reward & recognition
  • Online discounts at over 150 retailers and cashback on shopping, holidays, insurance and more!
