This is an exciting opportunity to join a business which has gone through an immense amount of growth over the past number of years and have no intentions of slowing down. With an international supplier base, they are looking for someone capable of sourcing materials globally and managing a high number of SKUs.

Client Details

I've exclusively partnered up with a Sheffield based business as they look to strengthen their purchasing function by recruiting a Tactical Buyer. With a strong history of designing and manufacturing specialist equipment, they have since ventured out to a number of markets which has resulted in continuous growth for the business.


As the Tactical Buyer you will be responsible for overseeing our supply chain, buying products from suppliers in the UK, USA, Europe and the Far East. Some of your key activities will include:

  • Managing stock levels on approx. 7000 lines.
  • Forecasting demand and ensuring stock levels meet expected sales levels allowing for variable lead times
  • Build strong supplier relationships both at home and overseas with a view to improving quality and reducing costs
  • Supplier negotiations
  • Vendor management
  • Raising and expediting orders and managing the order process to delivery


The successful candidate for the Tactical Buyer role will ideally have the following key skills and qualities:
  • Confident self-starter, able to manage their time effectively to achieve individual and departmental KPI’s and targets
  • Excellent inter-personal skills with the ability to build successful relationships at all business levels both internally and with supplier
  • Skilled negotiator
  • Effective computer skills with a practical knowledge of Microsoft Outlook / Excel / Word
  • First class purchasing skills with the ability to apply these at a tactical level

  • Previous experience working within a fast-moving environment

  • A history of improving stock availability whilst driving costs down
