Buying, merchandising & design
Being a professional Buyer with House of Fraser is all about negotiating, strategising and making astute commercial decisions. Yes there’s the occasional trip abroad, to places as far flung as India and Thailand, the USA, in search of ideas, products and inspiration. But trust us – there’s much, much more to it than that.
Whether you join us in your first job as a Buyer or as a multi-award-winning pro, you’ll feel right at home here as you focus on building a range of products and brands (across fashion, home, accessories and beauty) to sit proudly on our shelves.
It’s a job that calls for charisma by the bucket load, a commercial mindset, and the ability to roll your sleeves up and work strategically with everyone from designers and suppliers to merchandisers and store managers – pulling together the best range of products and making sure it sells.
We don’t look for Buying degrees or anything like that (although, naturally, it will always come in handy) – rather, we look for Buyers who are obsessed with fashion and fashionable things. People who live and breathe it. And, above all, people who love nothing more than travelling the globe in search of inspiration and the next big trend a whole year before it hits the catwalks and shops.
