I am exclusively recruiting an exciting, BRAND NEW ROLE for my established and reputable FMCG client based in East Leicestershire. The new role of Far East Sourcing Manager role compliments recent plans from a newly appointed CEO, to empower the UK business to develop their own strategies.

Client Details

My client are a global organisation, operating within both a manufacturing and stockist/distribution environment. They are continuously bringing new products to market and keeping ahead of the competition. They manufacture some of their own products on particular sites, whilst other products are sourced from the Far East and also sub-contract manufactured products.


The role of Far East Sourcing Manager will be focused on the management and development of projects to achieve cost savings, supplier rationalisation and strategies while improving the quality of supplies and service. This role may involve some international travel to meet with suppliers and other areas of the business.

You will be responsible for the sourcing strategy of products for the EU market, predominantly from the Far East.

There will be no direct reports initially but there will be the opportunity over time to build a team.


The successful candidate will be educated to degree-level and experienced within a fast-moving, B2B, consumer orientated environment. You will have strong project management experience and the ability to manage multiple projects and prioritise effectively to meet deadlines.

You will have proven success within implementation of processes and sourcing strategies. Low cost country sourcing experience is essential and any experience of working with the US would be advantageous.

The successful candidate will be driven, results-focused and have strong vendor and stakeholder management.

Job Offer

The successful candidate for the role of Far East Sourcing Manager will be offered upwards of £45'000/PA plus benefits, dependant on experience and profile.
