Our Procurement team is responsible for sourcing the very best equipment and services that we need to run our business every day. This team focusses on all the behind-the-scenes areas of our operations, providing detailed knowledge of necessary products and services; from the lifting equipment used in our warehouses, to the electricity which powers our stores. As part of this team you will be constantly dealing with both local and international suppliers to ensure that we always have the right product or service at the right time and at the best value available on the market.
While much of their time is spent searching the market for best value and new innovative ways of doing things, the team gets involved in many different and diverse projects throughout our business, from the introduction of self-service tills to the redesign of our store layouts.
