Purchasing Manager
Dunedin City, Otago, NZ
2d ago

Bidfood is New Zealand’s leading foodservice distributor made up of four divisions : Foodservice, Fresh, Processing and Logistics.

Together, all our divisions provide a complete range of 20,000+ food and non-food products. We pride ourselves on serving over 15,000 customers that range from restaurants and cafe kitchens, to anyone that caters to large numbers of people (like the Navy, Prisons, Aged Care, Hospitals, and Schools).

Reporting to the General Manager as part of the leadership team, you will make sure our ranging and stock levels meet customer’s demands across all our lines in dry, chilled, fresh and frozen.

It's a "hands on" role, though you'll have the autonomy to make decisions and the support of our national network of Purchasing Managers across the country.

We are dedicated to service delivery. That means you'll need to :

  • Use your analytical and data management skills (using Excel and other inventory management tools) to know what our customers want and need.
  • Build relationships across our local team and suppliers, to negotiate the best deals on what our customers need, when they need it.
  • Ensure our team understands, and is motivated by, the Meat Category.
  • It would be great if you have purchasing, procurement, buying, category management or inventory control experience in hospitality (hotels or restaurants), FMCG or grocery retail.

    However, we are open to someone with purchasing experience in any industry that has a complex buying and inventory control structure.

    Given the importance of the Meat Category, experience in a butchery or meat related role would be an added bonus.

    If this sounds like you, come join Bidfood. Apply now.
