Assistant Buyer Jobs in Sutherland

Sutherland sits at the head of mainland Britain, with Caithness to its east and Ross & Cromarty to its south. It has coastlines to its north, west and south-east. The county is large in area but small in population, its land mainly being used for agriculture. Sutherland is now part of the greater Highland council area. The county town is Dornoch (with a population of just over a thousand), down at eh south-eastern tip on the coast. The county is served by the A9 that runs up the east coast of northern Scotland, as well as the main railway to Inverness.

With such a sparse population, Assistant Buyer jobs and other such management and executive positions are quite uncommon in Sutherland itself. However, larger towns such as Inverness are an hours or so away by road from the southern parts of Sutherland, so focusing a job search in such towns might be a more fruitful option.
