Dear Ms Graham,
I am a graduate calibre individual who has a long track record of placing orders with the most appropriate supplier in terms of price, quality and service.
I have recently seen your advertisement for a Buyer, and am eager to put my name forward for your position as I feel that it perfectly fits my competencies.
During my career I have gained extensive experience of supporting and assisting successful Buying Teams. For the last three years I have been employed by the Forward Retail Group as their senior Buyer. My main duties there include; obtaining and analysing quotations, negotiating deals and developing strong working relationships with suppliers. I have built up a reputation for monitoring orders to ensure that goods are delivered on time and in the correct quantity.
I am an expert at using the very latest specialist procurement software and am someone who can
quickly acclimatise to any business environment. Furthermore, I have a comprehensive understanding of multi-currency transactions and a knack for reviewing departmental purchasing spend against agreed benchmarks. In addition to this I also have the robust negotiating skills needed to successfully influence vendors, suppliers and internal departments alike.
My enclosed resume, which I have attached for your review, contains additional details of my professional expertise and ability to work fast, communicate effectively and hit the ground running. One of my strongest points is my self-motivation which helps me to work accurately and to tight deadlines.
Right now I am looking to grow in an exciting role, exactly like yours, where I will be able to develop skills in new areas.
I thank you for taking the time to review my application and look forward to receiving an invitation for an interview.
