Job of the Week!
My client is a dynamic, ambitious manufacturing company with a sustained track record of success, an exclusively blue chip client base and plans that involve both significant financial investment and challenging, yet achievable, growth. As part of their plans to improve efficiencies, manage costs and improve the quality and performance of the supply chain, they are now seeking to appoint an experienced, determined CIPS qualified purchasing manager to manage their entire buying cycle. You will have gained your experience in a manufacturing environment, and be as comfortable buying raw materials and part finished products as you are negotiating soft services. Your remit will involve seeking out and assessing new suppliers, driven by a desire to both maintain high quality standards and best prices, and you must be comfortable sourcing products where appropriate in the global marketplace, which may necessitate overseas travel. This is a fantastic opportunity to join a forward-looking employer that views purchasing as an essential strategic function rather than a back-office one.
