Your new company
A well-established manufacturing firm based in Co. Down have grown significantly over the past few years with year on year increase in £ turnover and new teams created to sustain customer order demand. Also, as an organisation, they have a very low staff turnover with some members holding 30+ years' service which shows dedication of their local workers. On a global scale, this company are known for their excellence on quality and customer satisfaction of specialised products. Due to ongoing expansion, they are seeking a new Buyer to join their ever successful procurement department on a full time basis.

Your new role
Reporting to the Purchasing Manager on site, the Buyer will be responsible for raising daily purchase orders onto their internal MRP system, ensuring that all materials and services are sourced in a timely and cost effective manner whilst analyse supplier performance on an ongoing basis. You will liaise with all internal departments such as logistics, production, supply chain, planning and finance with input to material demand forecasts. Also, you will monitor vendor approval, price optimisation for new and existing sources, support the inventory model and help to minimise stock obsolescence.

What you'll need to succeed
Your previous experience in purchasing, supply chain or an inventory management position will lead to success, ideally in a high regulated manufacturing environment. You will be able to work effectively as part of a team or on your own initiative, have high standard of organisational skills and experience in tendering, outsourcing or price negotiation with suppliers. Also, any external training, supply chain qualification or CIPS membership would be highly beneficial but not essential.

What you'll get in return
Joining a global business, you will have the opportunity to work within a high volume purchasing environment within a company that is continuously growing which will provide many benefits to all employees over the next 6-12 months. Along with enrolment to the company’s benefits package, you will be rewarded with a fully negotiable salary based on your experience.
