Macildowie is currently working in partnership with an established business in the manufacturing sector with the aim of recruiting a Senior Buyer. Due to the nature of the role and business, the Senior Buyer will need to have relevant procurement experience, ideally within a similar environment and be used to sourcing from a global supply base.

Key accountabilities of the Senior Buyer:

- Managing and controlling the company's supplier performance against KPI's
- Track market conditions and fluctuations to ensure ongoing competitive pricing
- Negotiate best terms (costs, lead times) with suppliers whilst maintaining quality
- Establish strategic relationships with key suppliers
- Identify new suppliers, agree terms and negotiate supply agreements
- Build and maximise close working cross-functional relationships with associated departments
- Continually improve purchasing methods and drive down external spends
- Occasional supplier visits both in the UK and abroad

To be successful in this role, you'll need experience in a purchasing role and have a resilient nature; you'll be able to demonstrate managing profit margins and making cost savings in previous roles. You'll be a strong negotiator, able to interpret, analyse and negotiate contractual cost elements - if you have done this with worldwide suppliers it would be beneficial, although this isn't a necessity. We need an effective communicator with strong interpersonal skills to manage internal and external relationships, and you must be eligible to live and work in the UK and be based within a commutable distance of Loughborough.

It would also be beneficial if you had a Manufacturing / Engineering background in addition to being a member of CIPS or studying towards it. Depending on experience, this role will pay up to £40,000 - if you fit the criteria outlined above, please do not hesitate to apply.
