Buyers are responsible for ensuring that the materials required for construction projects are provided to schedule and according to projected budgets.
Salaries typically depend on location, employer and level of responsibility. Salaries and career options improve with chartered status.
There are no formal qualifications required for becoming a buyer; however you may want to complete GCSEs in Mathematics and English or their equivalents, such as the Welsh Baccalaureate or Scottish Nationals.
Some buyers may complete an NVQ or HND in a construction related subject, such as Diploma Level 3 NVQ in Construction Management.
