BUYING ZARA KIDSWEAR
Find your true path - we are looking for a buyer for our Zara Kids department in La Coruña, Spain!
What would your daily routine look like?
You are responsible for the development of the collection. Therefore, you are working closely with our controllers to manage the budget and our designers to select the product, the colours, the fabrics...
On a daily basis you are checking the sales, the commercial needs, trends to be able to react quickly to the changes in the market. As a buyer you decide about the quantity that needs to be bought, about the location of the production sites (Asia, Europe, Africa…) and you are in charge of the sourcing of new suppliers and production markets.
You are in continuous contact with suppliers to negotiate prices, qualities, margins, and delivery times. Moreover, you are doing monitoring of the product from production to the arrival at our warehouses.
On top of that, you are working closely with quality control to make sure that the fitting and the quality meet our norms.
What are we expecting?
You are an analytical and structured profile, but you are also highly sensibilized in terms of our product. For you it is no problem to keep yourself updated regarding fashion, latest trends, street style, new brands, designers…
You feel comfortable using Microsoft Office, especially Excel, and you speak English and Spanish on a professional level. Furthermore, you are willing to travel frequently.
As an excellent communicator you love to network and to work in a team although you are perfectly able to work individually as well.
You are proactive, with a strong eagerness to learn and to grow, with an analytical mindset, as well as creative abilities to solve challenges. Moreover, you pay attention to every detail and are able to adapt quickly to new situations.
What can you expect from us?
At Inditex, we are working in an international environment. Our people are coming from different cultures and backgrounds. Part of our philosophy is to listen closely to everyone which is why your opinion counts from the first day onwards. We are working in open spaces with a flat hierarchy which facilitates the communication between the teams and colleagues.
We are unconventional and try to reinvent ourselves in everything we are doing, always striving to offer the best product to our customers. The trial-and-error method is part of our daily life – we are not afraid to try new things.
