Job Description

Primary Responsibility

Reporting to the Head Buyer, this position will be responsible for day to day procurement of both raw materials, and finished product for re-sale.  Finished products will primarily include plant material, so some horticulture knowledge is hugely helpful, although not a requirement with previous buying experience.  The successful candidate will have excellent organizational skills, attention to detail, negotiation skills, be flexible and willing to jump in and learn.  We are a small but very busy group looking to expand, and we need a knowledgeable, dynamic individual to help us get there!

 

Duties and Responsibilities

  • Ensure correct purchasing and cost of product from vendor.
  • Negotiate price of product and delivery service as directed by head buyer.
  • Maintain correct inventory levels based on season, concentrating on replenishment as necessary.
  • Coordinate with other departments as needed to understand product needs and sales goals.
  • Audit and track inventory, receiving and delivery schedules and resolve any discrepancies that arise.
