Procurement firm recruits in response to business growth

Regency Purchasing Group wants to recruit more than 20 people in response to significant growth and an increase in demand for its services.

Regency, one of the UKs leading leisure and hospitality procurement specialists, says it has grown 38 percent over the past year.

The business is looking to increase its team from 51 to well over 70 to meet its members’ needs and drive ambitious plans for further future growth.

Regency needs additional Procurement Managers, Procurement Executives and to recruit more staff at its head office in Weston-super-Mare to support its existing and new field-based colleagues and reinforce its customer service team.

The business has more than 5,000 members and an extensive network of more than 700 suppliers and brand owners.

It works with leisure attractions, hotels, restaurants, bars, cafes, zoos, farm parks, indoor play centres, bowling alleys and others.

Regency’s managing director Alex Demetriou said: “The past few years have been particularly challenging for the hospitality and leisure industry, and more and more businesses have recognised the benefits and value we can bring to them.

“Our growth is a testament to the confidence our clients have in us and their appreciation of our expertise and support.

“This is an extremely exciting time to be joining us, and through this large-scale recruitment drive, we hope to attract a new and diverse range of talent to help us achieve, and hopefully exceed, our ambitious growth targets.

“We’re looking for a mixture of talented and experienced procurement managers with proven track records in food and drink sales as well as individuals looking to build and develop their field sales careers in a business which offers unlimited opportunities, clear career progression paths and uncapped bonuses.”
