Assistant Buyer Jobs in Lincolnshire

Located in the east of England, Lincolnshire shares borders with a number of counties, including Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, Leicestershire and South Yorkshire.

The major settlements in the region include Lincoln, Boston, Grantham, Spalding and Gainsborough, and these are all great locations for those seeking Assistant Buyer vacancies.

Predominantly an agricultural area, Lincolnshire has long been a source of produce including wheat and barley, as well as sugar beet, cabbage, onions and cauliflower.

For the most part, the current economy is based on the service sector. A number of tech and engineering companies have head offices or other facilities here, including Dynex Semiconductor, e2V Technologies and Bifrangi UK.

Brake Bros Ltd, a distribution company that provides food and drink to the catering industry, has a depot near Grantham. Bell & Webster manufactures precast concrete, Vale Garden Houses produces conservatories and agricultural equipment is made by RC Setchfield.

For many years, the docks in Grimsby have been connected to the fishing industry and today the region is known for food production - particularly frozen fish - with more than 500 companies based here. These include the Findus Group, which operates Young's Seafood, as well as Coldwater Seafood and Five Star Fish.
