A great opportunity has arisen in Sheffield for someone who is looking to further develop their skill-set within purchasing. You will be joining a well-established team on an interim basis with the opportunity of going permanent after a 6 month period.

Client Details

I'm currently working with a Sheffield based client whose brand is highly recognisable within the construction industry. They specialise in providing a full service range of facilities management, planned and responsive repairs to housing providers. Since going through an internal restructure they are now looking to develop their purchasing team by hiring a number of skilled professionals.


The purchasing assistant will be responsible for the following.
  • Obtaining prices for spares from a number of suppliers
  • Ensuring we get the best price for our customer and the company
  • Purchasing parts within a short time frame ready for dispatch around the UK
  • Adhering to various Key Performance Indicators throughout the day
  • Ensuring customer Service Level Agreements are met when ordering parts
  • Arranging couriers for various tasks around the UK
  • Keeping tracking off all purchased stock
  • Ensuring all purchased spares are returned within a designated time frame


The successful candidate will have to be available for an immediate start and will ideally have the following key skills and qualities to carry out the purchasing role.
  • Purchasing experience
  • A good understanding of excel (V look-ups, pivot tables)
  • Isn't afraid to challenge suppliers
  • Works well as a team
