If you are interested in; interim procurement roles, being assigned a particular direct material category and challenging yourself with tight deadlines & difficult negotiations then I have a fantastic opportunity for you.

Client Details

In today's economy it is great to see manufacturing in the East-Midlands including Derbyshire pushing forward to make the most of, lets be honest, an uncertain situation. This particular role is with a manufacturing and production organisation who are moving from strength to strength; winning project after project. This is where the importance of an Interim Category Buyer will become essential to maintaining that success.


The key responsibilities of this position are to be assigned a category (direct materials) for you to provide essential support to the function and the overall success of the project. Supplier negociation is going to be tough - margins are already being squeezed (the whole manufacturing and production market is feeling it) but the project calls for savings to be made. This role is perfect for you if you are at that level where you want a challenge, where you want to be pushed for that sense of achievement at the end to be an incredible feeling.


For the Interim Category Buyer you will be required to demonstrate tough supplier negotiation achievements along with proven project procurement experience. These days its not about "passing-the-buck" to your supplier for a saving but to work with them to achieve cost-reductions.

You will also need to be available within a week's notice and be able to articulate your achievements across a telephone interview with the client and be happy commuting to Derbyshire daily.

Job Offer

The role of Interim Category Buyer will provide a great feeling once you realise the importance of your role within the function. You will be an essential part of the success behind this manufacturing and production industry.

While you are achieving this, you will be remunerated with c£275 per day.
