BUYER- GLOBAL ENGINEERING BUSINESS
£30,000- £33,000+ Benefits
Fantastic opportunity!! We have a newly created position within an industry leading Engineering business based in the Preston/ Lytham area!
This is an exciting opportunity where your remit will be to work with the wider purchasing and engineering teams in ensuring part availability for production is being provided at the most competitive price and the highest quality. With an increase in sales and several large contracts being won, your role as Buyer will be vital in ensuring the continual growth of the business.
As part of the role you will analyse synergies in supply across the wider group and begin to tackle the large spend areas. With the business going through significant change following a merger and the centralisation of the purchasing team into the well established Sheffield office, you will be required to work independently and autonomously.
You will be a driven and enthusiastic Buyer, ideally from an engineering/ automotive background. This role would be suited to someone who is comfortable dealing directly with suppliers from the UK and Europe. Above all, this role is well suited to candidates who are driven by success and who want to help a business grow.
- Minimum 2 years procurement experience (Ideally in an engineering environment)
- Comfortable working in a fast paced environment
- Good IT skills
- Strong communication skills
- Degree/ CIPS preferred
This is a leading engineering business with market leading production going out to industrial customers and retail customers. Following the success of new product developments and outstanding consumer feedback, this company is experiencing tremendous growth and becoming a market leader. You will be joining a team that is characterised by its energy, drive and vision to succeed.
