Based in Leicestershire, my client is an instantly recognisable name. The client is seeking an Electronics Buyer to head up the procurement function owing to a change in circumstances of the previous incumbent. While we are in uncertain times, if you are considering a change of roles, now is an ideal time to steal a march on the competition.
The Electronics Buyer will report into the Head of Operations, and therefore be the lead point of authority for the procurement function. Overseeing all categories of direct spend, the budgets and spends will be owned by the successful applicant and we are therefore looking for someone with experience of owning and managing a procurement function.
The successful candidate must be an excellent stakeholder manager, and capable of working under time pressured conditions, with suppliers and clients from all over the globe. As the lead point of authority for the procurement function, the Electronics Buyer must have experience of sourcing vendors and negotiation contracts, as we as a proven track record of supplier management and improvement, as the products the company manufactured are extremely time critical, so holding suppliers to their delivery dates and expectations is crucial.
A very appealing package is on offer. Plus this is a time to move ahead at a time of limited competition for jobs.
