As one of the world’s largest providers of distribution and outsourcing services across the Food, Hospitality and Healthcare sectors, the opportunities we provide our global team of some 19,000 talented people is endless. Ours is a culture of bringing out the best in people. And we do this with a strong entrepreneurial spirit, a firm commitment to training and development, and dedicated leaders who believe that every day is a new day to see new opportunities.



As a key player in the Bunzl Procurement team, your role is integral to improving our bottom line whilst providing high level support to our customers.


Reporting to a Category Manager, use your vision to create a Category Strategy to manage the development, strategy and growth of new products as well as our existing Bunzl exclusive brands. You will develop and maintain the product ranges and suppliers in assigned categories by building strong relationships directly with our manufacturers and suppliers, and maximising delivery performance, sales and margin growth.


There’s a lot to be said for working for a diverse global business like ours, and we promise you’ll have maximum exposure to a broad range of products across multiple market sectors. The fast-learning curve you’ll experience is what truly sets us apart from our competitors, and we will empower you to continue to take on more challenges and responsibility.



You’ll have that same entrepreneurial spirit that we live and breathe here at Bunzl, and the ability to build and manage internal relationships to bring out the best in those too. At Bunzl we all work together to support a common goal, so your strong teamwork, organisational and communication skills will be right at home here.


You may have had some experience in the category management space, and if it happened to be within a Hospitality, Processing or Healthcare environment, all the better. Along with your fast learning curve, comes a high volume of work in your daily output, so resilience, time management and attention to detail is high on our check list too.


The other essentials we are looking for are:

  • Tertiary qualifications:  Business, Science BA or BCom
  • Microsoft suite: in particular Excel (intermediate to advanced)
  • Some level of Enterprise resource program (ERP)


It would be ideal if you also had:

  • Supply chain or quality control skills



Bunzl offers a broad and flexible range of benefits to our team including profit share scheme for eligible employees, exclusive motor vehicle and health insurance products, travel and accommodation discounts, study assistance, many wellbeing and community programs and access to discounted Bunzl products.



With an entrepreneurial spirit providing endless opportunities, we believe that together we can achieve anything. We believe that through diversity we build strength and stability, and that the safety and security of our employees is not negotiable. Through innovation we find solutions, with an entrepreneurial spirit providing endless opportunities, and we believe that together we can achieve anything. Investing in our local communities is the right thing to do, and here in Australia that investment is building a sustainable environment for our staff, customers and those who follow.



At Bunzl we believe that through diversity we build strength and support the principle of equality and diversity in employment. We oppose all forms of unlawful or unfair discrimination on the grounds of age, disability, sex, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief and marriage and civil partnerships. We believe that it is in the company’s best interests and those of all who work in it, to ensure that the human resources, talents and skills available throughout the community are considered when employment opportunities arise. If you have a disability or special need that requires support or adjustments to working or interview arrangements, please let us know.



At Bunzl, we believe that when you join our team, your potential is endless. Because at Bunzl… We believe in you! If you like the sound of this, then we definitely want you on our team.  We are a Circle Back Platinum Employer – we commit to respond to every applicant.
