Hiring Lead: Paul Read

Local sourcing specialist/buyer



Just Provisions are a world class provisioning business - we supply super yachts with the raw materials to deliver the ultimate customer experience.  As the only online yacht provisioning supplier, we are changing the way an entire industry operates, using technology to streamline all aspects of our business, we are looking for a passionate individual to join us.  As a dynamic and energetic contributor we need you to help us grow.  Based in South of France (06), you will be a English/French speaker, living locally with your own means of transport and a “can do” attitude.


Our business was established in 2013 to meet the needs of crew and Guests aboard some of the world's most exclusive yachts.  Primarily working with chefs and the interior staff, we provide ingredients and household products from our base in the  Cote d'Azur.



Working with our team located in Nice, as a sourcing specialist you will report directly to the head of purchasing, providing buying and logistic support. As our season gets underway, you  you will be expected to work hard to meet the exacting standards of our customers.  


You will take responsibility for ensuring that clients receive the products that they expect:


High quality fresh produce

Supplier and shop collections

Local sourcing of dried food products

Interior items



This is an important  junior role in a rapidly growing, well financed business with international ambitions.  You will need to be problem solver, with a keen attitude.


Specifically we need you to:


Live locally

Hold a valid driving license

Speak fluent, or good level of French

Be more than comfortable with ALL types of technology

Know how to work with numbers and spreadsheets

Remain calm under pressure

Work hard


Our business provides only the best products, quickly with an attention to detail and service that cannot be matched. You will also need to have more than a passing interest in (fine) food, (expensive) wine and (outstanding) customer service.


Our team is drawn from a wide pool of experience and we will consider candidates from most backgrounds. You do not need to have worked with yachts or chefs, or chief stewardesses, but it could be an advantage… just be ready for a significant challenge.



It is likely that you will have been to school.  Possibly even university, but we are more interested in what you can bring to our business and how we can include you in our team.  An open minded approach to excellence, with some IT skills will probably suffice.


WARNING -  This is not a lifestyle business, yachts are demanding customers and the people needed to impress them are special, hard working and motivated. Still interested?
