Our client is a well known food manufacturer associated with mega brands on the high street and on supermarket shelves.

The role of Group Buying Manager is an important one, reporting directly to the MD and with the remit to deliver secure supply from an industry leading cost base for the business.

Covering ingredients, packaging and non production spend to a total of c.£35m, this recruitment comes at an important point in the ongoing growth of the business.  A transformation from transactional buying to create a truly strategic sourcing function is required and fully mandated by the Board.

Working closely with an industry respected NPD team, the Group Buying Manager will play an important role in delivering product innovation, as well as ensuring security of supply and competitive commercial terms with a global supply base.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a growing business that is widely respected in it’s field at a time where Purchasing is front and centre on the corporate agenda.

There is ample scope to deliver impressive results and doing so could lead towards a broader role in the senior management team for the Group Buying Manager

So, if you

- have a 8+ years of consistently delivery excellent results in Purchasing roles in the food industry
- are excited by product innovation, new ingredients / processes / suppliers
- enjoy working cross functionally, particularly NPD and Quality
- can implement, from scratch, a strategic sourcing process to deliver savings, control, visibility & security of supply
- want a high profile role where the Purchasing buck stops with you

And, ideally

- have some experience in the cereals markets
- have worked in larger organisations and want to take more autonomy and accountability

Then this could be a great opportunity for you to join an organisation where your impact will really show up on the bottom line.
