>>tesco ice cream and desserts buyer
Wendy White says she fell into buying because she was in the right place at the right time. Her first of several buying roles was as a packaging buyer within the manufacturing arm of Albert Fisher.
"There was a vacancy for a buyer and I went for it,” says White. “I soon found out I loved working with numbers and meeting different people every day. It is a good job if you like talking and I love the people I work with now."
She has been with Tesco for 18 months and says the biggest challenge is responding to the UK’s climate. “The weather can be unpredictable but it is exciting when you're launching a new product and get to watch customers enjoy it on a hot day.”
