Experienced Purchasing/Sourcing Specialist, Salary £35,000 - £50,000

Your new company
Due to internal promotion, a world leading manufacturing firm are seeking an experienced and highly enthusiastic Purchasing candidate to join their ever growing and successful Sourcing team. This company has long established roots within the manufacturing industry and pride themselves with their focus on increasing customer satisfaction with recent new contracts secured on a global scale across Europe, Asia, USA and further afield. Their multicultural working environment is recognised worldwide as an employer of choice as they strongly commit toward the continuous improvement of both their employees and technical processes.

Your new role
Reporting to the Sourcing Director, you will be responsible for developing new methods and sourcing strategies in line with material requirements to ensure cost effectiveness and achieve large volume savings on an annual basis. The Sourcing Specialist will be very interactive across all departments including NPD, design, production, logistics and planning whilst evaluating the existing end-to-end supply chain processes and driving continuous improvement initiatives throughout. In addition, you will monitor supplier performance and identify new sources of supply by strategically outsourcing suppliers on a global scale which will involve international travel. Also, you will negotiate frequently on material pricing and use internal MRP/ERP software to analyse inventory forecast plans.

What you'll need to succeed
Your degree qualification and previous 5 years' experience in a Procurement, Supply Chain, Sourcing or Continuous Improvement role will lead success with high volume sourcing on a global scale and experience managing an annual spend in excess of £8 Million. Also, examples of successful price negotiation will be highly beneficial along with a flexible approach to problem solving and a working CIPS membership is desired.

What you'll get in return
The successful candidate will have a one off opportunity to work for a leading and global organisation which places emphasis on internal promotion and progression through their management hierarchy. Also, you will have the option of international travel, full training on systems upon start date and a negotiable salary and benefits package above the market average.
