An opportunity has arisen to join an integral Engineering and planning function within the Leicestershire based global fulfilment organisation supplying a diverse range of products and services into a vast range of industries. The Material Planner/Buyer will be responsible for driving material requirements to satisfy internal and external demand.

Client Details

My client is a global, top tier organisation. With sister sites across Europe, Asia and the United States, this role is going to have a global remit, and will have some excellent exposure. The principal operation of the business is within an industrial Engineering capacity, though this is by no means a pre-requisite for the successful applicant.


Some key responsibilities of the Buyer/ Planner include:

  • Material requirement and demand planning for a range of products and components both internally manufactured and externally sourced.

  • Working cross functionally with purchasing and production teams to expedite and de-expedite production orders and sourced material to support on time delivery in line with actual demand.

  • Managing inventory value, days on hand and turns for WIP, SMI & finished goods.

  • Placing purchase orders, chasing acknowledgement and working with external suppliers to ensure business needs are met.


The successful applicant for the Buyer/ Planner role must have experience in an industrial manufacturing operation, with previous exposure to supplier interface and material resource planning. Ideally, the candidate must demonstrate an upward trajectory in his or her career and have the capability to develop and be moulded into a developed and integral part of the Supply Chain function.

Job Offer

The Buyer/ Planner will be paid in the region of £30,000 plus company benefits.
