I am working with an award winning manufacturing business in North Down to recruit for a Buyer on a permanent basis. The organisation manufacture and supply a range of products and their customers include some of the UK's biggest retailers.
As Buyer, you'll be joining an established purchasing team but will work cross-functionally across the business. You'll be responsible for a portfolio of materials and it will be your job to ensure products are available on time, at the right quantity for production. This is a fast moving environment and you'll be working with short shelf life materials so a keen eye for detail is a must. You will be required to forecast requirements and ensure that stocks are maintained at appropriate levels. My client operates in a price sensitive industry so the successful buyer must be able to keep abreast of pricing trends to maintain a competitive advantage. As Buyer, your duties won't be limited to tactical procurement - this is a varied role and you will work on multiple projects including sourcing and buying for new product introduction.
Competitive remuneration package is available to include basic salary of £28000 - £30000 (dependant on experience).
Ideally, you will have previous experience of working in a similar role in a manufacturing / FMCG environment. Strong analytical skills are essential and the successful Buyer should be able to work under pressure and to tight deadlines. CIPS qualification is preferred, but not essential.
If you would like to discuss this Buyer job in more detail please contact me, Kelly Jennings on 02890242824. If this position is not quite what you are looking for, but you are interested in procurement or supply chain roles I would be delighted to hear from you - I am the procurement and supply chain specialist here at Grafton and am registering new jobs every day.
You must have a current, valid UK work permit to be considered for this job and only candidate's whose CV is meeting the criteria will be accepted.
