An exciting opportunity has arisen for someone to join Berry Bros. & Rudd’s Buying Department for a period of 12 months. This will be in the role of Buying Administrator, to cover maternity leave.
The successful candidate will provide key support to en primeur
offers, working very closely with our buyers, updating codes and prices within the Company system and cross-checking marketing brochures and leaflets with the information within the system (price, stock availability). This requires exceptional attention to detail and confidence using IT and systems.
The successful candidate will be expected to become the Berry Bros. & Rudd Own Selection label expert, taking responsibility for all administration and co-ordination for the labels and developing their own kn0wledge to become fully up-to date with all legal requirements for wine labels. An advanced level of wine knowledge will be hugely beneficial in this role.
In the absence of the buyers, the successful candidate may be required to liaise with producers and suppliers; thereby the ability to speak a second language (French or Spanish) would be beneficial. They must be able to build positive working relationships internally and externally, be highly organised, and be a confident user of Microsoft Excel.
As a member of a relatively small but busy team, a flexible, proactive and inquisitive approach will be vital characteristics for success. The role will also require involvement in a wide range of other regular buying administrative functions.
This is a great opportunity for the right candidate to broaden their experience within the wine industry and to gain new skills and insight into all aspects of the day-to-day workings of a Buying Department.
If you are interested in this opportunity and wish to apply, please send your covering letter and CV to Juliet Pike (Buying Office Manager) at firstname.lastname@example.org
