Macildowie is currently working in partnership with an established business in North-West Leicestershire to recruit a Senior Buyer. Working in the manufacturing sector, you will need to have significant procurement experience, ideally within a similar environment and be used to sourcing from a global supply base. The Senior Buyer will be responsible for one half of the business and therefore have the autonomy to manage supplier relationships and make strategic decisions.

Typical duties will include managing and controlling the company's suppliers and establishing strategic relationships. You’ll track market conditions and fluctuations to ensure ongoing competitive pricing and when this cannot be achieved, you’ll identify new suppliers, agree terms and negotiate supply agreements. There will be a focus on continually improving purchasing methods and processes, as well as driving down external spends.

You’ll need excellent communication skills; as Senior Buyer you’ll build and maximise close working relationships with various departments and stakeholders/suppliers at various levels. This will include supplier visits both in the UK and abroad.

To be successful in this role, you'll need experience in a similar, strategic 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. 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 between £35,000 and £40,000 - if you fit the criteria outlined above, please do not hesitate to apply.
