Your new company
A successful family run business that have made a significant local impact and gained numerous multinational customers across their specialised products are now seeking to expand one of their departments and seek an experienced Buyer or someone keen to progress and develop within procurement. This role will hold a central responsibility and present many opportunities over the next few years, also it will be appointed on a full time permanent basis.

Your new role
Reporting to the MD, you will coordinate the full end-to-end supply chain process from ordering raw materials and products, negotiating costs with global suppliers, investigating discrepancies with price and quality whilst using bespoke MRP software. The Buyer will identify new sourcing and cost saving opportunities from suppliers across Europe and maintain professional relationships with new and existing suppliers to ensure continuity of service. Also, you will liaise effectively with all departments such as production, sales, finance, logistics, shipping and planning to provide updates on monthly spend with comparisons to scheduled customer demand.

What you'll need to succeed
Your approx. 2 years' experience in a purchasing, material planning or supply chain volume orientated role will lead to success along with preferred industry knowledge of high volume manufacturing. The successful Buyer will work within a competitive environment to deliver results and be rewarded accordingly by achieving KPI's based on cost reduction. Also, you will be proficient in all Microsoft packages and ideally able to generate spend reports and raise purchase orders using MRP software although full training is provided.

What you'll get in return
