Dear Ms Graham,
My background, experience and qualifications make me an ideal candidate for the Buyer vacancy that I saw yesterday on the dayjob.com website. I have proven experience of working within a fast-paced buying environment, and possess the relentless drive, boundless enthusiasm and high levels of resilience needed for your challenging but rewarding position.
As a true all rounder I am someone who can deal directly with your key suppliers, manage their performance and also be the conduit between your supply base and the rest of the business.
In the past I have worked in roles very similar to the one you are advertising, where I have been in charge of negotiating cost prices which improve product margins, and ensuring the company holds the optimum level of stock required to maximise sales. For the last three years I have been employed by Southern Retailers, where I communicate effectively with my Merchandising colleagues on a daily basis to identify problems and make suggestions for improvements. With my present employer I have a well deserved reputation for maximising sales and increasing profit potential at every opportunity.
My key strengths include but are not limited to quotation analysis, sample management and online product management. Aside from this I also have excellent supplier management skills, and am an expert at maintaining an up to date knowledge of market trends and competitor intelligence.
Right now I am looking for a position, like yours, that provides a market leading remuneration package and excellent career prospects.
I very much hope that you will look favourably upon my application by recognizing my future potential, and subsequently invite me to an interview.
