Senior Buyer – Boots – Alshaya , Kuwait

Boots
Boots has been catering for healthcare and beauty needs for over 160 years. With a mission to help customers’ look and feel better than they ever thought possible,
Boots pharmacies have earned a reputation for providing customers with excellent, trustworthy, healthcare advice through the team of highly qualified, professional pharmacists. In addition to this, the store staff provide a friendly and helpful service to customers looking for expert skincare advice, the latest cosmetics, essentials for babies and children and even indulgent hair care treats.
If you have previous experience of merchandising and planning encompassing budget setting and achieving margins and category profitability with excellent negotiation skills then this role offers the opportunity to lead brand selection, product launches, in-store merchandising and category management for a specific brand.
Previous experience of the Middle East is not essential and as such this role provides an opportunity to gain experience in this market. Retail in MENA is growing steadily and working with Alshaya gives candidates with excellent interpersonal and analytical skills the platform to grow their role with a market-leader.
