Senior Buyer required for Cardiff based Financial Services company


As a Senior Buyer, you will facilitate and manage the procurement of goods and services including the development of risk-mitigating sourcing strategies, competitive tendering and evaluation processes, contract drafting & implementation and on-going management of third party suppliers. You will also play a significant part in the training and mentoring of other members of the team as well as educating senior stakeholders within the Group in the value of effective procurement.

Key responsibilities include:
  • Managing the critical dates and schedules for procurement projects and procurement work-streams within change initiatives to ensure deadlines and success criteria are met.
  • Identify and drive through category savings opportunities through market and data analysis, product standardisation, supplier rationalisation and contract negotiation.
  • Build and maintain relationships with senior internal stakeholders and external suppliers (up to Director level) to ensure process efficiency, cost effective procurement and robust governance; foster the use of e-procurement systems and promote the value of effective procurement across the Group.
  • Provide support and training to internal departments across the Group involved in procurement activity; support the development of the SRM (Supplier Relationship Management) framework and skill-sets appropriate to the needs of the business.
  • Draft and negotiate high value, high risk agreements for goods and services understanding all standard legal implications and all commercial terms ensuring risks are minimised and mitigated and contract value maximised.
  • Proactively undertake supply market-place analysis to identify trends, new and emerging technologies, products and services making recommendations appropriate to the needs of the business and challenging inertia.
  • Manage and review suppliers’ performance, initially agreeing and subsequently ensuring that KPIs and SLAs are met; refining terms and negotiating service credits where necessary.
  • Promote and embrace a culture of continuous improvement being open and proactive to improvements and carrying out improvements in line with the corporate methodology.
