Many companies across the world are attempting to be as sustainable as possible by altering many of the common practices in the industry. If this is something you’re passionate about, this business may have an excellent opportunity for you. Currently producing a £200million turnover in the UK, our client also has a strong position in Europe across the sustainable, renewable and recyclable manufacturing industry. They are currently looking for a Purchasing Manager to take on all four of their UK sites.
You will have overall responsibility for £9M of spend, dealing with multiple suppliers, indirect purchasing and direct spend. Dealing with the liked of utilities, fleet, consumables and PPE, you will be analysing where savings can be made across the business. Focussing on cost saving initiatives and YOY spend, you will need to present your ideas and business plans to the board.
A successful applicant will understand purchasing in a manufacturing environment and the necessary items that are needed. They will also have experience of managing suppliers (100+) and presenting to the board. It is essential that you have previous experience of contract implementation, negotiation and indirect purchasing. You must also have previous proven track record of year on year savings.
