Are you visionary, independent, passionate?
An invitation to our Graduate Buyers Training Scheme
If you have a head for figures, an entrepreneurial spirit and are keen to start your career in style look no further.
Now with 11 stores, Fenwick is the UK’s leading, independent department store group. Each store is an autonomous business with its own unique character and customer base.
At Fenwick, a Buyer is a manager, an organiser and a creative thinker focused on selecting the right product, which is crucial to the business. Using your knowledge and plenty of instinct, you will review and select potential merchandise, negotiate deals, fitting into an agreed purchase budget and present enticing, well planned ranges to the customer. Buyers are at the very heart of our business and have wide responsibilities with a great deal of independence. Their vision and talent is what makes our stores so excitingly different.
On our Graduate Training Programme you’ll be on the fast track to becoming a Buyer. Following an initial induction you will gain valuable retail experience working in a variety of departments, from fashion to home, whilst undertaking a structured personalised training programme.
You’ll quickly become involved in every aspect of our business – leading your team, analysing trends, talking to customers and dealing with suppliers. Mentored by a Senior Manager, you’ll move across several departments, developing your skills and confidence to make decisions and take responsibility. Prove yourself and you could be a buyer within two years.
