Assistant Buyer Jobs in Wiltshire

Known for its sweeping Salisbury Plain and ancient stone circles like Stonehenge and Avebury, Wiltshire is a county in the south-west of England that shares borders with a number of counties like Somerset, Hampshire, Oxfordshire and Dorset.

For anyone seeking Assistant Buyer roles in Wiltshire, a number of options can be found in the region - in settlements such as Swindon, Salisbury, Trowbridge and Wilton.

Much of Wiltshire is situated around the M4 corridor, and this has given a significant boost to its economy, as businesses are attracted to the region's ease of access and lovely rural surroundings.

Manufacturing is an important part of the local economy, and products that are made here range from electrical goods to food and beverages, furniture, pharmaceuticals and plastics.

Just some of the companies that have set up regional or international offices in Wiltshire include WHSmith, Early Learning Centre, Dyson, Honda, Reckitt Benckiser, Intel and Motorola.

The National Trust's head office is also registered in Wiltshire and Oxford University's book depository for the Bodleian Library is also here - which contains over 150 miles of bookshelves. What's more, a number of military and defence establishments are also located in the region.
