Hungry for a better job or just hungry, a leading British grocer might be your 'cup of tea'. Sainsbury's serves more than 16 million customers a week and as of the end of March, it had 752 stores throughout Britain. The local buying office of Sainsbury's is looking for a general merchandising manager with at least 10 years of experience to help in planning and implementing the company's long-term strategic goals. On a day-to-day basis, the incoming manager will be responsible for hard-goods vendor identification, evaluation, selection and development. He or she must have the negotiating skills and outgoing personality to influence vendors and negotiate the best prices. The company also expects the manager to be honest and above reproach in these interactions. Additional tasks include budgeting for the general merchandise area and working with the British head office in planning seasonal product selection and range reviews. It will also fall to the customer-focused manager to monitor the production scheduling and delivery performance, and to provide visibility to the business. As part of the senior management team, the incumbent will oversee a team of 15 people. To lead them successfully, they should have at least five years of experience in a managerial role. Good goal setters with knowledge of Europe or the British market are preferred. Prior work experience in a company based in Britain would be an advantage.
