Assistant Buyer Jobs in Greater London

An administrative area that was created in 1965, Greater London is often described as the region within the M25. It comprises the City of London, as well as the 32 boroughs, and is home to an array of businesses, making it an ideal choice for those seeking Assistant Buyer opportunities.

For hundreds of years, London was known for its shipping and manufacturing, producing everything from textiles and food products, through to automobiles and ironwork.

In fact, a number of such facilities are still in operation today, such as the Tate & Lyle sugar refinery in Silvertown, Warburtons in Brimsdown and Nestle in Hayes. At the Ford factory in Dagenham, vehicle body panels and diesel engines are manufactured, while Fuller's Brewery operates out of Chiswick.

For the most part, however, London's economy is now based in the financial and service industries.

Around 70 per cent of the FTSE 100 are located within Greater London. In Canary Wharf, you'll find the headquarters of HSBC, Barclays, Citigroup and Reuters, while other big-name businesses in Greater London include the Guardian Newspaper, Balfour Beatty, GlaxoSmithKline, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Marks & Spencer, BP, British American Tobacco and Royal Dutch Shell.

What's more, transportation is a huge part of London's economy and day-to-day operation. Overground trains, underground trains, buses, coaches, taxis and trams all keep Londoners on the move, while the area is also home to a number of airports and the Port of London.
