Buying & Merchandising

Create are recruiting within retail Buying and Merchandising teams, from independent boutiques to international chains. Whether it’s buying fabrics, garments, jewellery, handbags, shoes or beauty. The list goes on.

We look for candidates who have previous experience within buying teams. Buying candidates must have knowledge within developing and delivering ranges that meet the needs of their customer.

Buyers must be excellent communicators and negotiators as they work closely with a number of business areas including Design, Merchandising, Marketing and Garment Technology. Buyers build relationships with a wide supplier base ensuring that the delivered product is the best it can be.

Merchandisers have a lot of responsibility on their shoulders, as the fate of the business can hinge on you picking the right products, merchandising them correctly and managing the stores or websites well enough to keep customers coming back for more.

Commercial understanding is essential.

If you’re happy with handling a lot of responsibility, think you can cope with tight targets and heavy workloads and have a genuine passion for the retail industry,  you can get ahead in this sector.

If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you.
