Are you a Buyer with a background in house building looking for a new opportunity?


Would you like the opportunity to work for a multi award winning independent developer?


My client is recognised in the South West for its exclusive homes with a reputation for luxurious specification and premium quality. The Company specialises in the construction of outstanding individual homes in idyllic settings within the Bristol, Bath & Wiltshire areas.


Their homes are individually designed and before planning permission is sought, the designs are rigorously evaluated, not only for the aesthetics and suitability of the property for its intended environment, but also the functionality and practicality of day to day use. The innovative and dynamic approach to these designs result in a far higher specification for the customer than would be found in comparable developments.


Due to an increase in workload they are recruiting a Buyer for their Wiltshire office. They are looking for candidates with experience in the following:


  • Read and understand contract drawings and specifications.
  • Schedule materials to ensure fulfilments are met to achieve programs.
  • Place enquires and ensure material prices are negotiated to maximise profitability.
  • Maintain material database and orders to ensure latest information is on system.
  • Negotiate prices and maintain stock of Personal Protective Equipment, Surveying Equipment and Non-Mechanical Tools.
  • Maintain Material checks for stock taking.
  • Understand the tendering process, obtaining best possible material prices and agreeing fixed price periods.
  • Sub-Contract buying and purchasing for bespoke Housing projects.


Ideally qualified to HNC or equivalent, with excellent written, verbal and computer skills. You will have experience of working as a Buyer for a residential/construction company with a minimum of 3 years experience in a similar role. Ideally you will be based in the Wiltshire area.
