Senior Vendor Manager - Books


London, United Kingdom


The Amazon.co.uk Books business is thriving. This is a great opportunity to join a high performing team in one of the most established parts of Amazon's business. Despite the maturity of the books business it remains a center of innovation, experimentation and new thinking.

We encourage an entrepreneurial environment where ideas are valued, respected and more often than not, implemented quickly. Our core focus remains the same as it was when the business first started; to offer the very best customer experience. This isn't a bar which stands still, meaning we need to constantly bring new and exciting tech and commercials ideas to ensure we delight our customers every day.

The future holds more of the same expansion, growth, building supplier partnerships, broadening the selection and improving the customer offer every day. To support this we are looking for a Vendor Manager to work as part of our team. This position is responsible for growing the top and bottom lines of the product category and for building vendor relationships, negotiating contracts and pricing, developing promotions, and monitoring and reacting to industry and competitive trends.
If you are a strong buyer or category manager with outstanding commercial skills and a strong customer focus then we want to hear from you.


· Professional experience, including commercial negotiations, ideally in an e-commerce, retail, key account management or consulting environment.
· Proven ability to influence others in a business setting.
· Strong communication skills and an assertive approach, whilst maintaining your ability to be vocally self-critical.
