Purchasing Manager

Telford

40,000 - 45,000pa + benefits

My client is an outstanding success story, with an exclusively blue chip client base and an enviable reputation in the marketplace. As part of their ongoing growth plans, and with an eye to improving both their supply chain and their margins, they are now seeking to appoint an experienced CIPS qualified purchasing manager to a new role, not only heading up the purchasing function, but designing and implementing a purchasing strategy to drive the business forward. The broad details of the role are that you will be responsible for a team of buyers, and for a budget approaching 10m covering raw materials, bought-in goods and indirect services. However, this is only part of it, and the rest is very much down to the ambition of the individual. You must be able to demonstrate experience in negotiating and managing commodity purchases in a high demand and fast paced manufacturing environment and of forging relationships with key suppliers based on mutual benefit, not bullying. It would be beneficial if your CV shows evidence of having established, or radically overhauled, a purchasing function and strategy, and you will be expected to back your claims with hard facts and statistics. This may seem a little extreme, but the role demands candidates of the highest calibre, and the opportunities with the business, in terms of autonomy and career and earnings potential, far outweigh this minor inconvenience.
