    Future prospects Longer term progression to Senior Buyer or other commercial roles will be possible depending on capability and experience. Things to consider The role often involves tight deadlines and as a result working hours frequently extend beyond 9am to 5pm. Early starts or late finishes may be especially common when travelling to trade fairs or visiting customers or suppliers. The majority of working hours are spent in an office, although there may be travel off site during the day. Buying departments have a busy and lively atmosphere. Buyers have frequent contact with customers and suppliers in the course of their work. Retail buyers have a high level of responsibility. Some may find this stressful, while others may view the challenge positively. Travel to attend trade shows may be required occasionally, as well as visits to suppliers in the UK and overseas.
