Better Looking Business

It’s an exciting time to join us as a Trainee Buyer on Primark’s global Buying and Merchandising team.

A business that’s bringing ethical fashion and high-profile brand partnerships together, to share the latest trends with the world.
Are you a fashion fanatic and want to be part of our growing company? As a Trainee Buyer at
Primark, you’ll play a key role in supporting our buying team in developing products for the latest
‘musthave’ trends. Working closely with the buyers and merchandisers, you’ll be responsible for managing the department’s critical path to make sure all of our amazing products arrive in store on time and are up to our high quality standards. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to learn about the industry and progress in a buying role.

In a competitive industry, we’re the growing business you can’t hold back. Right now, we’re expanding across the UK, Europe and US. So, if you’re a computer native, pride yourself on being organised and have a passion for all things fashion then we need you on board as we continue to grow!

enthusiastic and creative and always open to sharing new ideas.

Commercial ability - A key part of your role will be taking ownership of the department’s admin
tasks. You will have a keen eye for attention to detail and understand the everchanging needs of our
business and customer.

skills are a must.
Total organisation - In a fastpaced environment, managing the department’s products will be your
domain. Whether it is for meetings, keeping the buying floor organised or managing what is sent to
our online, social and press teams.

High integrity - We pride ourselves on taking our ethical standards seriously. You will always be
working with our CRS policies in mind.

Why work with us?
