Electronics Manufacturing is an exciting, fast paced environment which varies every day. But it’s also a challenging one which requires commitment and dedication. Consistently sourcing raw materials and delivering complex products on-time, in full doesn’t happen by luck. It’s not just a case of pushing a few buttons and hoping for the best. It requires an amazing team with a unique set of skills and a passion for process and control.

We build the electronic ‘hearts and brains’ for complex machines supplied all around the world. Our customers are at the top of their game and the products they design and sell keep the world moving – quite literally in some cases. So, any delay, shortage or damaged piece of material has the potential to stop our production lines and we can’t afford for that to happen. This is where you can help.

We currently have full time vacancies for Buyers to join our growing team. We want to hear from people that have a minimum of 3 years purchasing experience in a production/manufacturing environment and the ability to read and interpret manufacturing drawings and bills of materials.

Role responsibilities:

•You will support the Purchasing Department with all aspects of the purchase to pay process. Includes; replenishment of materials for production, expediting, negotiation, indirect purchasing processes, supplier delivery and quality issues, and other purchasing based support activities.

•You will need knowledge of Material Requirements Planning (MRP) systems, strong verbal and written communication skills, attention to detail, numeracy skills, knowledge of purchasing processes and the ability to use and process data in Microsoft programs including Word and Excel.
