Buying

At the Co-op we’ve been championing issues that matter to our customers for years. And it’s important to us to understand where our products come from, what ingredients go into them and how we can make our business operate more efficiently. We want to show our customers how we source, produce and sell food in a responsible way. From making sure workers in our supply chain are treated and paid fairly to supporting British farmers, or from managing where we source ingredients from to helping people make healthier choices. We do it all because we believe that food matters. You’ll join us, because you do too.

The Co-op commercial team serves over 12million distinct customers every week and takes responsibility from “sourcing to shelf”. We’re responsible for product and supplier sourcing, ranging, pricing, marketing and optimising how stores merchandise the product. Ultimately we aim to grow, share and maximise sales and profitability in the ever-growing convenience food sector.

You could say it’s in our DNA to drive commercial growth, responsibly, for the benefit of our customers, members and the communities where we trade. So, we look after all indirect and some direct spend across the entire business. As a team, we shape and deliver procurement strategies, which will make a commercial difference and impact on our future. We also work together with our business partners and share our expert knowledge and understanding.

We’re always looking for people to join us with interests and ambitions to match our own.
