Job Description

A Senior Buyer with experience in electrical and electronics buying is required to join a leading British manufacturer

Following a major overhaul of the brand in 2018 that included some major changes to the procurement function, this longstanding brand is seeking a Senior Buyer to join their team on a permanent basis. With around 400 employees and a strong annual turnover, the brand has seen steady growth and is now looking forward to a busy year of new launches and events.

The procurement team has grown from 3 to 8 in the past 12 months, with commodities assigned across two manufacturing sites. Working to procure a range of electrical and electronic items, duties for the role will include:

- The management and evolution of a range of current and new suppliers
- Sourcing of both one-off and volume parts
- Population and maintenance of BOM using PLM systems
- taking a lead role in the office required

As an individual, you will have held or currently hold a procurement position within a manufacturing environment, with responsibility for electrical or electronics purchase. Showing excellent ability to negotiate and manage long term relationships, you will be comfortable sourcing a range of products and services within assigned budget, always with savings in mind.

Of further interest, but by no means essential, are CIPS qualification and experience using Navision MRP software. Strong IT skills and an organised nature are a must!

This is a great opportunity to join a long-established industry name, building yourself a role that will offer clear growth. On offer will be a market leading salary and benefits package, and a chance to make a real difference.

If this sounds like your sort of challenge, please Apply, or for further information please contact Ed on 02380 633399
