Buying Graduate 2023



Our teams at Hilmore House (our head office in Bradford) play an important role in making good things happen and that means it’s buzzing with activity. Join us on our two-year Buying Graduate scheme and you’ll have lots of variety including sourcing ranges, negotiating deals and forecasting trade plans. You’ll also play a big role in everything from promotions to product launches, marketing and packaging, all while earning a starting salary of £28,000.

What’s involved?

On our Buying Graduate Scheme you’ll be given early responsibility as an assistant buyer, before quickly training to become a buyer in a specialised product area. You’ll be learning on the job from experienced buyers, get involved in supplier negotiations and go on placements within a store to understand our customers and colleagues. Day-to-day, you could be:

  • Collaborating with suppliers to ensure we’re able to offer the best products at the best costs
  • Sourcing and selecting ranges within your product area to give our customers a great choice
  • Forecasting sales and trade plans to ensure budgets and project timelines are up to date

Our structured training and the opportunity to work on exciting projects means you’ll have plenty of opportunities to progress and learn while with us. By the end of the programme, you will be ready to specialise in a specialist product area and expand your career as a buyer.
