Dear Ms Graham,
I have noticed that an exciting vacancy for a Buyer has arisen with your company. After reading the job description, I am convinced that I would make a perfect candidate for it.
I am a proven Buyer who has a successful track record of sourcing new suppliers for current and future products. With a passion for merchandising you can be assured that I will always obtain the best results in the most direct and appropriate way. Apart from being able to actively manage all aspects of the buying process, what really makes me perfect for your position is my ability to consistently develop best practice purchasing methods.
Overall I have worked in this field for the last five years, two of which has been spent with my present employer, the Northern Retail Company. At work my routine duties include progress chasing late deliveries, re-scheduling orders, updating order forms and maintaining regular contact with stores, suppliers and warehouses. In addition to this I am also responsible for keeping a close eye on the competition, requesting samples, comparing quotations and actively contributing to team meetings.
On a personal level I am energetic, proactive and have a friendly and engaging personality. I possess excellent communication skills and have a confident telephone manner.
At the moment I am looking for a suitable position like yours, that offers the potential for excellent growth and career opportunities.
