Graduate buyer

We’re looking for the future leaders of our business. Could this be the graduate scheme for you?

Image of graduatesAs one of the largest water companies in the UK, we need to purchase lots of goods and services to make our work flow smoothly. This can be through the help of our contract partners, or by buying some important pieces of kit for us to complete one of our multi-million pound capital projects.

Join us as a graduate buyer and you’ll be supporting the delivery of commercial solutions that give us a reliable, cost effective and a value for money service.

Throughout your time on the scheme you’ll develop a good understanding of how our commercial team supports the delivery of business objectives and targets on behalf of our customers. You’ll be working with a range of people from our operational employees, to suppliers and have the opportunity to build effective relationships. You’ll be expected to identify opportunities and improve processes to optimise performance for our customers.

We’re looking for someone who’s self-motivated, and someone who’s able to work just as well in a team, along with working independently. You’ll have good communication skills and the ability to write clear and accurate reports and recommendations, as well as producing dashboards to support our customers’ needs.

But the learning doesn’t stop there. We’ll support you in your development and encourage you to become a qualified member of the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS).

You must have a 2:1 accredited degree in a relevant business discipline.
