Reach your full potential as a Trainee Purchase Manager
As a Trainee Purchase Manager, you will join one of our Purchase teams. The Purchase teams within B&S take care of the purchase of our products. Each team’s market share is subdivided into the product segments Beauty, Liquors & Food. The team you end up with depends on your interests and the location where you will be working.

As a new addition to one of our purchasing teams, you will be responsible for your purchasing area. Within one year, we will prepare you to become an independent Junior Purchase Manager according to the B&S standards. Once you have mastered everything, you determine the strategy for your product-market combination together with your manager.

  • maintain customer contact with existing suppliers and try to expand your network by building new relationships.
  • will initially communicate a lot via telephone and digital meetings. Eventually, there will also be regular trips abroad on your schedule.

Your responsibilities also include registering and processing purchase orders. Due to your accurate working, you ensure that the order process runs smoothly.
