About the Team

At GreenPrice, sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. High-quality but short-dated food products often go straight from the shelves to the landfills. We are on a mission to further the lifecycle of these products by redirecting them to homes at half-price or less. Our social enterprise operates 6 stores, collaborates with thousands of inspired international brands and places technology at the heart of our activities. Last year we’ve significantly boosted our online business and successfully expanded our sourcing network abroad. We’re quickly growing the team, come & meet us!

Our Buying team is ultimately responsible for the products we sell. While most retail Buyers only go out a few times a year, ours are always out saving amazing products at the verge of disposal. As an Assistant Buyer, you will be introduced to Buying and given the chance to gain invaluable experience, analysing and identifying business trends while reporting directly to an experienced Buyer. After sufficient training, you will start using your negotiation skills to make buying decisions on the spot. This means you can stay very close to the business and be more flexible – as well as negotiate some fantastic deals. You will be an entrepreneur, have the responsibility and make a big impact. We offer a really exciting career path for a long-term future.
