A new and exciting opportunity has arisen within the Sheffield area for a Purchasing Manager. After acquiring a number of businesses, the client which I'm representing has almost doubled in size overnight. This is a great opportunity for someone with extensive knowledge around supplier management and rationalisation, to drive a thriving business forward.

Client Details

I am once again working exclusively with this client as they look to strengthen their supply chain function. The client I am representing are a supplier of goods and consumables to many manufacturers, which they distribute both locally and nationally. Recently they acquired a number of businesses which has seen their turnover almost double in size, and as a result they now require an experienced purchaser to manage the supplier base.


As the Purchasing Manager you will based in Sheffield, but responsible for centralising the purchasing function across three businesses. Initially, you will be tasked with managing the supplier base across each business unit, with an aim of improving processes, increasing efficiencies, and achieving cost savings. Once established in the role there will be an opportunity for you to hire a purchasing assistant, so previous management experience would be desirable.


As the Purchasing Manager you will ideally have the following key skills and qualities:
  • Previous purchasing experience at a senior/strategic level

  • Strong negotiation and cost analysis skills
  • A track record of cost savings
  • CIPS
  • Relevant industry experience
  • Previous management experience
