Sophie is London Stone's Buyer. She maintains our arrivals schedule, updating all the information from our suppliers to give an up-to-the-minute status on all accounts. Sophie didn't drink tea when she started at London Stone, but is now rarely seen without a cup in her hand!
"I am the Buyer at London Stone. I am based in the Head Office in Langley and there you will always find me on the phone to our freight company, liaising with some of our suppliers or ordering consumables. A lot of my other responsibilities include buying stock, updating incoming shipping containers, quality checks on stone and the ordering of samples. These tasks are highly important to the buying and sales teams as we want to make sure the only stock that goes out of our yard is of the highest quality. As the Buying Assistant, I also assist the finance department dealing with some of their administrative procedures like the compiling of invoices and getting quotes weekly from suppliers."
